GAME of Thrones luminary Peter Dinklage is reportedly being lined up for a key role in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.

According to Variety, the actor is in early talks for a key role in the blockbuster.

Plot details remain vague on the movie but it will involve the superhero team returning to face the Marvel mega-villain Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin).

Dinklage’s role remains unknown at this time.

But it appears the actor is available to do it now that production on the seventh season of Game of Thrones has wrapped, meaning that he could shoot during the summer.

The plan is shoot the next two Avengers films (Infinity War and its as-yet untitled sequel) back-to-back, with Variety’s sources suggesting that Dinklage will appear in both.

Infinity War is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who co-directed the last two Captain America movies. They take over the reigns from Joss Whedon, who helmed the two previous Avengers flicks.

Avengers: Infinity War is currently set for release on May 4, 2018.
