Bryan Singer’s resumed his habits of Tweeting pics from the production of DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and this time he’s drafted friend and DOFP baddie Peter Dinklage into the scene. Here’s the pair doing something important, like deciding on their lunch menu or debating the merits of Dinklage’s disgusting perv mustache.
We’ve been debating which villain Dinklage will play, and we haven’t been able to narrow the field. I have a nagging feeling that he’ll play a particularly demonic antagonist… someone of Egyptian heritage, perhaps? You know who I’m talking about, right? Apocalypse!!!
Now, I know Singer’s claimed that Dinklage’s character will not be based in CGI, but he could be fibbing a bit, or at least I hope he is. I wouldn’t want to waste the Half-Man’s potential on a one-off baddie.
Acting as a sequel to both X-Men: First Class and 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand, the third film in the series, Days of Future Past includes cast members from both: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from the original trilogy, while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult return from X-Men: First Class. Hugh Jackman, the only actor to have appeared in each of the previous X-Men films, will reprise his role as Wolverine. Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart and Fan Bingbing round out the film’s principal cast. Principal photography began in April 2013 in Montreal, Canada with filming wrapping in October 2013. The film is being shot in 3D.
