    they didn't confirm he's playing Puck, but I really don't know if there's any character in the xmen universe who's a midget. or a dwarf. or just short.

    i'm with you, i just don't get it. plus, he was really alpha flight, and I wonder if that's even covered under the x-men licensing agreements.

    Could always be doing voice work, playing a new character, or a lesser character who wasn't originally a dwarf. I would actually prefer them making new characters that fit their script/plot rather than pulling characters from the existing universe just to have them there for name recognition/fan service (Gambit in the Wolverine movie).

    Best theory I have seen making rounds is he will play Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels. Before anyone gets up in arms over the fact that this character was not a dwarf, keep in mind he's fairly obscure. Most people wouldn't care about such a change and Dinklage has the ability to command a performance larger then life.

    It's not Puck. I don't see them working him into the story at all.

    Speaking of Gambit, I never got why he wasn´t in any of the movies. And that part in the Wolverine movie doesn´t count. I want to see the Gambit I watched in the cartoon show, not that clown. He was an awesome character.

    He is a relatively newer X-men and I'm not sure he would have fit in particularly well with Rogue being as young as she was in the movies. The cartoon adaptation of the Days of Future past storyline incorporated Gambit, so they could conceivably pull him in, but again shoehorning him in just for the sake of adding additional characters seems like a bad idea.

    If Gambit were introduced in the movie American audiences wouldn't be able to accept the over-the-top Marvel universe. I mean, people shooting lasers from their eyes and controlling atoms of metallic substances telekinetically is one thing, but French people living in the American south is just too ridiculous.

    odd. i don't really see Dinklage as a zealot-type. then again, i suppose it depends on what iteration of Trask they're working off of.

    I loved him in "Ice Age 4". He needs to bring that type of intensity again if he wants to compete with the likes of Stewart, Fassbender, and McKellen.

    Maybe Cable will make an appearance, although I don't think see how that could be possible given they want to tie this into the other X-Men movies. Cable is just too strong to not take over the movie and make his absence in the other movies strange.

    It's a separate movie universe and both are unknown characters to the masses. They can and will write whatever back-story they need if they decide to add Bishop. No one will care if the movie itself is good.

    People forget that these movie universe often change around characters for their needs. Look at Rogue. She's nothing like the comicbook version and yet her character worked well in the context of the story being told.
