‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Reveals More Evidence Peter Dinklage Is Bolivar Trask
Some days, it feels like the more we learn about ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the less we actually know about it. One of the ongoing mysteries has been the identity of Peter Dinklage‘s villain, with fans searching all over the ‘X-Men’ universe for a character who fits the Emmy-winning ‘Game of Thrones‘ star. Now a new photo from the set has arrived, but does it help to clarify his on-screen identity?
Could Dinklage be playing Bolivar Trask, the scientist who created the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots in the comics? It’s a rumor we’ve heard before, but we have a new piece of evidence straight from director Bryan Singer himself:

While that’s not confirmation that Dinklage is playing Trask, it’s certainly confirmation that his company will play a role in the film…which re-confirms the film will feature the monstrous robot Sentinels that have been a major part of the ‘X-Men’ mythology (and have been mostly absent in the films). However, all we really know so far about Dinklage’s role is that he’ll be the primary, none-CG antagonist, though all our clues seem to be pointing in one direction.
What do you think? Do you think Dinklage could be playing Trask? More importantly, do you think he’d be a good fit for the character? Give us your thoughts in the comments, and here’s a closer look at the new image.
