One of the most surprising castings of the year so far is Peter Dinklage’s role in Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, Dinklage is most known for his role in Game of Thrones and 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, actors playing multiple comic book roles is the normality nowadays; just look at Ryan Reynolds! Dinklage’s role in Infinity War has been under wraps by both Marvel and Variety (broke the news first), but now, thanks to a leak of copyrighted images, we may have our first look at Dinklage’s role.
In the images below, the only major difference we can see is the actor’s hair. Dinklage has opted for a bright red colour. The movie is based on Jim Starlin’s Infinity saga, leading many to believe that Dinklage is playing the role of Pip, a creation of Starlin’s. Pip is a troll who first appeared in Strange Tales #179, and has since only appeared in the short-lived Silver Surfer TV series from the late 1990s. Other’s, however, believe the actor is playing Eitri, King of the Dwarves.

So, what do you guys think of all this? I have no clue what to believe. I am not too familiar with any of the characters mentioned, however, Dinklage is a class-act, so whatever role it is, I am sure he will own it. How do you guys feel? Would you like Dinklage to play any of these roles, or do you have some other role in mind?
Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theatres everywhere April 25, 2018.
