    Ha, I thought that too! That'll teach all those people who said Hugh was too tall!

    Of course he would probably pull it off!

    Not really, black people are African or of African descent, Aborigines are indigenous Australians. Other than the ancestry the whole human race shares, those are two pretty distinct groups. Although Aborigines are often referred to as black in Australia.

    Good to see Dinklage cast, he's a great actor.

    Just my two cents...

    I think Dinklage is more than likely playing Bantam, who was the small-statured assistant to time-traveller Trevor Fitzroy in the X-Men animated storyline One Man's Worth... In that story, Xavier's death caused the dystopian future...

    People are only saying puck because of his height. Bet that's not who he's going to be.

    wait, that would a pretty inspired option. Since that would allow to One of the x-men to travel in time with Trevor.

    not sure if Bryan will use both characters, but I definetly would preffer a physical travel instead of a mind transfer

    He looks more like a villain, so I'm gonna go with human antagonist. Although him being puck would be great news.

    Why would Puck be great news? :huh: Since when was that character involved in DoFP and does that mean the rest of Alpha Flight will be shoehorned into this?

    Would be hilarious if he was Doop

    Puck is a pretty cool character.

    Gateway is just a Aboriginal teleporter who doesn't talk much. He can't time travel only teleport and why would the need another teleporter when they have or can use Nightcrawler and Azazel

    Wow, no idea who he is playing of course but Dinklage is a superb actor. Game Of Thrones is full of very good acting and Dinklage still stands out as the best so that says something, very excited about this.

    People keep thinking he's playing someone short. He might actually be playing Singer's proposed all-CG character who probably isn't short at all.

    I agree with you.Bryan Singer may have decided to cast him for role that Isn't a dwarf because he's a acclaimed and good actor.CGI allows more opportunity
    for him than Puck,Gateway,or bantam.

    If this character Is Involved In helping to acheive time travel I would rather It be as mutant who has helped design machine to acheive It.

    Look at you, making assumptions and putting words in my mouth. Puck is the one I don't take seriously, not Peter.

    Yes but adding random characters who don't really fit or belong has been one of the main criticisms of this series. I'd imagine they don't want a repeat of the grumbling about why Havok and Angel Salvadore were in First Class or Emma and Cyclops in XMO: Wolverine.

    The FC team will need more X Men more then likely, I doubt those characters will be from Dofp Comic given the difference in decade.

    I really don't think they care at this point. That same grumbling has been around since the first X-Men.

    Peter Dinklage is easily the best character in GoT. Phenomenol talent. I am sure he will suit whatever role. But with this kind of star power, the chances of seeing Storm get less and less.

    I would have zero problem with Puck appearing in DoFP, but if its true Peter got a "key role" I doubt its Puck.

    The first person I thought of was Fitzroy's sidekick guy, before Puck. Then again, I'm not too familiar with Puck.

    LoL if he is Puck, I hope this would lead to a Alpha Flight film as opposed to a X-Men: First Class film.

    I think it could work! lol

    Really, I say we need to think outside of the box when it comes to who he's playing. Just because he's an actor of a smaller stature does not make it obvious what character he would be.

    I would think someone like Bryan Singer would be a bit more creative and inspired than that.
