Peter Dinklage Won’t Be CGI in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: “It’s a Not Shy Character”

When Peter Dinklage joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past, I jumped on the bandwagon that speculated he would play Puck.  It was revealed later in the week that Dinklage will actually play the “main antagonist” the X-Men: First Class sequel, which rules out Puck.  It was thought that perhaps Dinklage was hired to portray this all-CG character that director Bryan Singer teased.  But after confirming that Dinklage won’t play Puck, Singer also dashed the CG Dinklage hopes:

“He’s not going to be a CGI character.  He’ll be himself.”

Hit the jump for the full quote.

Singer explained the appeal of Dinklage to IGN:

“He’s not going to be a CGI character.  He’ll be himself.  Not that he’ll be playing Peter Dinklage, he’ll be playing this character.  It’s not a shy character.  He’s just such a phenomenal actor; I’m a huge fan of Peter’s and Game of Thrones.  He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting].  It’s so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he’s this guy from New Jersey.”

So, X-Men fans: The villain is a) not shy, b) not CG, and c) looks roughly like Peter Dinklage.  Who do you think it could be?

Michael Fassbender, James McAvoyNicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and more from the X-Men repertory co-star in X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The movie hits theaters July 18, 2014.
