Peter Dinklage is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Avengers: Infinity War.

According to Variety, the Game of Thrones star is in negotiations to appear in the film which starts shooting later this year. There are no details as to which character Dinklage might be playing but the report from Variety describes it as a 'key role.'

Avengers: Infinity War and its as yet untitled sequel are scheduled to film back to back this year and Variety's sources claim Dinklage is expected to appear in both films. It seems the movement of Game of Thrones' filming schedule from summer to autumn has been key to allowing him to take on the role. 

If Dinklage does end up joining the cast, it won't be the first time he's been involved with a Marvel comic book movie. He of course played villain, Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to be released on May 4th, 2018.
