An actor who has been a fixture throughout the run of “Game of Thrones” is in talks for a key role in the upcoming Marvel feature “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Variety reports that Peter Dinklage, who stars as Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s “Thrones,” is in early talks to play the role.
“Production on the seventh season of ‘Game of Thrones’ recently wrapped,” the report notes. “Since the schedule for the show has moved from a summer shoot to a fall shoot, Dinklage’s schedule allowed him to board the latest ‘Avengers’ pic, which is expected to shoot sometime in early summer.”
The report adds: “The plan is shoot the next two ‘Avengers’ films (‘Infinity War’ and a yet untitled sequel) back-to-back. Sources indicate Dinklage is expected to appear in both.”
Marvel wasn’t commenting on the report.
