Tyrion Lannister might be headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Variety has revealed that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is being eyed for a key role in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and its yet-to-be titled sequel.

According to the trade, Dinklage’s new schedule on the HBO series — which has moved from a summer shoot to fall for its last two seasons — has given him an opening that would allow him to join the cast of the two Marvel Studios productions. Details about his role are being kept under lock and key, but Variety reports that the actor is expected to be in both of the upcoming Avengers movies, which will film back-to-back.

Joe and Anthony Russo will direct the two movies, which are expected to feature most of Marvel’s key players such as Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy along with a few newcomers, pitting them against Thanos, who will be played by Josh Brolin.

Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on May 4, 2018. Its sequel is currently set for a May 3, 2019 release. Stay tuned for more updates.

      Nah, they’re going to give Fox the finger and have him playing the same role he did in X-Men.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        I seriously doubt that lol

    Pip for sure.

    Ebony Maw! Ebony Maw!!!

  • Jason Scarpelli

    Most likely he will play Eugene Judd/The Watcher

  • Marquis de Sade

    Hopefully it’s PIP (The Dwarf), which means Adam Warlock can’t be too far behind!

      You know, people, the man DOESN’T have to play a “small person” role.

      I’m not saying he can play Namor or anything, but there are literally hundreds of characters whose specifics of character has nothing to do with their physique or gender or stature.

        MODOK isn’t a “small person.” MODOK is a cartoonish, floating-head, maniacal murder-machine. Peter is perfect for the character. The only actor I would like as much as Peter, is Steve Carell.

        The only “small person” here is you.
