“I didn’t want to play the villain,” Dinklage told EW. “He’s a man of science. He’s a man of invention. He actually sees what he’s doing as a good thing — [his ambition is] definitely blind and he’s quite arrogant. He’s strove all his life for a certain respect and attention.”
Not only will Trask be taking on the “mutant threat,” but he’ll have some big human opponents in the movie as well.
“He’s up against Richard Nixon,” Dinklage said. “He’s got some hurdles.”
