Now Singer implies to IGN that the Alpha Flight rumors are false and X-Men should be excited about Dinklage.

“He’s not going to be a CGI character,” confirms Singer. “He’ll be himself. Not that he’ll be playing Peter Dinklage, he’ll be playing this character. It’s not a shy character. He’s just such a phenomenal actor.

Dinklage has risen in popularity with his role as Tyrion Lannister on Thrones.

“I’m a huge fan of Peter’s and of Game Of Thrones. He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting].  It’s so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game Of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he’s this guy from New Jersey.”

Singer said that he was negotiating with another actor for a role in the film now, and that additional announcements about that casting ,as well as some “younger” characters, may be coming shortly.

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters July 18, 2014.
