Puck was my guess as well.
I don't recall him or the rest of Alpha Flight having anything to do with the Days of Future Past storyline in the comics though.

If he's not playing Puck, then maybe a very short Uatu: the Watcher?

Galactus?

No idea what role they'd have for him, but I'm sure he'll nail it somehow.

I'm not going to claim to be someone who knows what everyone likes, but I get a nagging feeling that this is a horrible title for a movie. It just sounds so 90's comic book revamp/70's Heman. Unless retro is in or something.

Came for Puck, leaving very satisfied!
 
2013-02-14 04:25:56 AM
It'd be funny if he were a recast Wolverine. Colossus could fastball special him to the moon.

"I hear he's bringing in Game Of Thrones star <a data-cke-saved-href="http://www.deadline.com/tag/peter-dinklage/">Pete r Dinklage into the mix for a key role."

Fleming has his computer read him Twitter feeds? Seriously, was there a douchier way to say "Singer's got Dinklage"
 
2013-02-14 05:39:50 AM
I'm hoping for Uatu...  I aldo don't really see him signing on to be "the super-dwarf".
 
2013-02-14 05:40:20 AM
Stan Lee's cameo should be a shot of him jumping over a mutant shark-man in glorious THREEE DEEEEE!!!

I'll watch it. Dinklage is a hell of an actor.

He's the Warwick Davis of the 2010's and a better actor to boot.  He's great in everything I've seen him in.  And I'll probably be bashed for it but I'd like to see him in a remake of Willow.

I kind of thought that's what Snow White & the Huntsman was..  granted, I didn't see it.

He's a FAR better actor.

Warwick Davis is a dwarf who became an actor by chance.

Peter Dinklage is a great actor who just happens to be a dwarf.

He was by far the best thing about "Find me guilty".

But I wonder how comes he can have such a deep voice, when most dwarves have high-pitched squeaky voices.

Brett Ratner, hopefully.

I know, I know, X3 wasn't entirely his fault. I blame Singer just as much for that disaster, as he just had to go off and make Superman Returns. However, if this is his way of making up for that abomination, especially if he uses this movie to completely excise X3 from the canon, then all is forgiven. I already pretend that X3 didn't happen, and it would be wonderful if the movies actually agreed with me on that point.

stupiddream: He's the

Warwick Davis Billy Barty of the 2010's and a better actor to boot.  He's great in everything I've seen him in.  And I'll probably be bashed for it but I'd like to see him in a remake of Willow Dr. Shrinker or something.

ftfy   At least Billy Barty was more a real actor.   That dwarf actor who appeared on a few episodes of L.A. Law and other stuff was a great little actor, too.

I'd say, since this is supposed to be set in the 70s (I think I've heard that), Wolverine may have been involved with Alpha Flight.  Ergo, Puck.
 
2013-02-14 08:14:35 AM
I think Uatu is the best match.  Put a dome skull on him and his body proportions are pretty much identical.

On the other hand the X-Men series tries to stay as grounded and realistic as is possible for a series of movies based on people with super powers.  So more likely it will be either Puck or some random mutant.  If Puck then Peter is going to have to do some serious bulking up.

I heard he's playing Wolverine's plucky son "Braeden". He has no super powers other than a quick wit and a way with the ladies.

Dinklage is in a unique position.  If you have a part for a dwarf in a blockbuster, you need him to play it, but he's not going to take it if the role demeans dwarves.  He's got Hollywood by the balls at this point.

Or they could just use a sock-puppet. They can make those pretty realistic these days.

I'm not sure "Hollywood blockbuster with a role for a dwarf" is quite large enough a segment of the movies being made for Dinklage to have anyone by the balls.

That being said, he's great. Love him in Game of Thrones and he was even pretty good in that Chris Rock remake where he was the dead father's lover.

I think he was in both versions of 'Death at a Funeral'.

They don't need to remake Willow. They need to do the Shadow War chronicles that follow the story in Willow. It's written by Chris Claremont so if you x-men fans haven't read it then it's something you might like.

It's the title of a highly popular, near legendary X-Men storyline from 1981.

Leech was in DoFP, but I mostly posted this just to laugh thinking of Dinklage as him.

At first I was like "No way."

Then I read the article and realized  X-Men: Days of Future Past was a serious title.

Oh, the Peter Dinklage thing is cool too.

When I go back and reread GoT, Dinklage is the only actor from the show that jumps into my mind as actually being his character.  The others are good, but Dinklage really defines nailing it.

Willow doesn't need to be remade.  Sure, Warwick Davis may have been hit or miss, but you're not going to improve on Val Kilmer in that movie.

Bareefer Obonghit: Leech was in DoFP, but I mostly posted this just to laugh thinking of Dinklage as him.


Was that in the cartoon version? 'Cause in the comics, at least, DoFP predates the Morlocks by about two years, and I think Leech by about three. Only ever saw bits and pieces of the cartoons.

Certainly not "by the balls", but he certainly does have a position of leverage between his stature and his acting ability.  Frankly put, there are people out there that are really going to want/need him for certain roles, and he's in the position to take them, dump them, or raise the price.

I like the guy's acting.  I think I first came across him on Nip/Tuck, many years ago (though in retrospect I think I remember him from something before then, too).  I'd be very disappointing if he signed on to the movie as "superdwarf".

Which is why you continue down the timeline with the Shadow Wars.

Dinklage as Willow is a given. You'd have to find a really talented actress for Elora Dannan. I hate to say it but Jennifer Lawrence would be good.

I'm really interested to see it whomever he plays...I would love to see him as the main villain, though...he could do it, and I think it would really break stereotypes.
