January 11, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Peter Dinklage dipped his toes into superhero waters with X-Men: Days of Future Past and it appears he liked it. Variety reports that the Game of Thrones star is in early talks to play a “key role” in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as well as its follow-up. The current plan is to film the two films back-to-back. Specifics on Dinklage’s role are not known at this time.

Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War) will direct both films, which shoot next year in Atlanta. Brie Larson is confirmed to make her debut as Captain Marvel in the film, with the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy set to team up.

Infinity War releases on May 4th, 2018 with its follow-up set to open on May 3rd, 2019.
