Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has added yet another cast member to upcoming sequel with the addition of Peter Dinklage. The director confirmed the addition of Dinklage earlier today when he sent out a Tweet officially welcoming the Emmy Award-winning Game of Thrones actor to the project.
Based on the classic “Days of Future Past” comic book storyline written by Chris Claremont, the plot deals with elements involving time travel and an alternate future in which mutants are hunted down by robotic Sentinels and placed in internment camps. This bleak, alternate future stems from the X-Men failing to prevent the assassination of a U.S. senator by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, thus creating an alternate timeline in which mutants are hunted down like animals.
The upcoming sequel already boasts an impressive cast that includes all of the original actors from X-Men: First Class as well as several key actors from the original X-Men trilogy including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore.
