Peter Dinklage in early talks for Avengers: Infinity War
Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, X-Men: Days of Future Past) is in early talks for a key role in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, according to Variety. The plan is to shoot the next two Avengers films back-to-back, with Dinklage expected to appear in both. Dinklage’s major role is unknown at this time.
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who return after Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, will direct both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth film which will be filmed back-to-back next year in Atlanta and are written by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Both films will also be shot entirely with IMAX cameras.
It remains to be seen which characters will be the primary focus of the films, though we do know that Captain Marvel will appear in the movies ahead of her solo movie in 2019 and that the film will feature the combined forces of The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is slated for a release in theaters on May 4, 2018, with its follow-up set to open on May 3, 2019.
