  Avengers: Infinity War eyes Peter Dinklage to star in key role - who could he be playing? Despite having already played villainous scientist Bolivar Trask in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Peter Dinklage might soon crossover to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in both Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. According to Variety, the Game Of Thrones star is reportedly in early talks to come aboard the project in a "key role". But with so many characters already set to appear in the upcoming instalment, including the likes of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and all of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which characters are left for him to play? IBTimes UK takes a guess Starfox By now, every Marvel fan knows that Avengers: Infinity War will see the titular team of superheroes finally go up against supervillain Thanos (Josh Brolin). Well, Starfox aka Eros, is Thanos' brother and basically he's not evil. In the comics, he was even a member of the Avengers at one point so it makes perfect sense! Eternity Eternity is a cosmic entity who appeared in the comic book series Avenger's Infinity; Infinity War; Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Abyss and we're pretty sure you know where we're going with this, given the film's title. His abilities include immortality and reality warping and he is a known ally and collaborator of Doctor Strange's, who is definitely going to show up in the movie.

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in talks to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the cast of Avengers : Infinity War and its untitled sequel.

Peter Dinklage is reportedly in talks to star in Marvel's 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

The 47-year-old actor - who has portrayed Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series 'Game of Thrones' since 2011 - is wanted to play a key role in the eagerly-awaited new comic book movie, which is expected to begin filming around the mid-point of 2017.

The role being discussed with Peter remains unclear, but he could feature in both of the next two 'Avengers' movies, which are being shot back-to-back, according to Variety.

Previous cast members, such as Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, are already on board to return to the money-spinning franchise, while Anthony and Joe Russo have replaced Joss Whedon as the director.
