[Update] Peter Dinklage to play villain in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Yesterday news broke that Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) had been added to the steadily growing cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer announced the addition via Twitter and speculation of which role Dinklage will have began almost immediately. While the character still remains unannounced we do know that he will indeed be playing the villain.

Like I said, speculation is all we have to go off right now but here are the top two predictions circling around the web world right now:

One prediction is that Dinklage will take on the role of Mr. Sinister, the genetically altered human with a strong telekinetic sense and mind influence ability. He doesn't really factor into the Days of Future Past arc, though. However, he does cross paths with Sebastian Shaw at some point (the main villain from X-Men: First Class) so this is possible.

Another guess is the villain will be Bolivar Trask. He is the baddie who saw the rise of the mutants as a threat to humanity despite having two mutant children of his own. He is also the military scientist who created the Sentinels, the mutant hunting robots. If you've been following the latest X-Men news you know that the Sentinels are supposed to have a big role in Days of Future Past.

Personally, I think Trask would be a better villain so I'm hoping that is the one Singer goes with.
