One of the biggest foes in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is the Sentinels. The mutant hunting robots are literally the biggest foes in the movie and Peter Dinklage recently talked about where he fits in the battle between these robots and the protagonists in the film. Moviefone published an interview with Dinklage this morning in which he talks about the fact that he actually feels that his character, Bolivar Trask may not be the villain he's made out to be.
"I didn't want to play the villain," Dinklage said. "He's a man of science. He's a man of invention. He actually sees what he's doing as a good thing -- [his ambition is] definitely blind and he's quite arrogant. He's strove all his life for a certain respect and attention."
Considering that Trask has long been held up in the X-Men universe as one of the worst of the worst when it comes to their enemies, this is definitely an interesting take on the role.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is actually something of an ensemble piece when it comes to the number of villains the heroes will have to fight. Dinklage points out that he actually has to overcome some hurdles himself in getting his Sentinels program off the ground.
President Richard Nixon even makes an appearance in the film. The movie takes a page out of some of the most popular comic book storylines that involve Professor X and and his crew. In the flick, Wolverine is sent back in time, to the 1970's in order to stop Bolivar Trask from getting his Sentinels program up and running. Wolverine insists that should the program actually get off the ground, it will start a war between mutants and humans that will tear the world apart.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is set to hit movie theaters on May 23, 2014.
