    Maybe he will play Gyrich, or just give voice to the sentinels, or both.

    The article mentions that, but Puck wasn't in "Days of Future Past" and Dinklage is a good enough actor that they may cast him in a role that was not a dwarf to begin with, and ignore his size. Of all the actors who could pull off a role like that, Dinklage is the one who could have the most success.

    He'd be a great Gambit.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Neither were Iceman or Rogue and they'll both be in the movie.

    But Iceman and Rogue are both X-Men and ones we have seen already. Puck was never a member of the X-Men.

    I don't see them doing him as one of the heroes. He strikes me as more interesting playing a villain. Probably a human villain. And his stature would add to his paranoia about mutants being more powerful than humans, and as Gyrich it would provide motive to create the Sentinel program.

    That would be an interesting concept.

    I wouldn't mind a human villain. Sometimes a human villain can be a breath of fresh air and act as a reminder why both The X-Men and The Brotherhood are doing what they're doing. However I just don't want to see a one dimensional mustache twirling villain thats doing evil crap for the lolz. Give said human villain a reason thats complex and would make you say" You know what I see where this guy is coming from". The best villain is the one whose reasoning for villainy actually makes sense if one looks at it. That and not seeing themselves as a villain

    And Gyrich fits that. He thinks he is protecting Humanity from the scourge of Mutants. From another perspective, he is the hero and the mutants winning makes it a disaster story. It's all perspective, and it makes for a great story. A true testament to Chris Claremont and John Byrne.

    When has Fox ever cared about something like that? The movies clearly take liberties with the source material. They could make Wolverine fly if they really wanted and still make loads of money. Fox is going to do what they've been doing, whatever they want.

    However, I don't think he's Puck either.

    Heh... You basically just argued with me, while agreeing with me. Maybe it's just me, but that's friggin' hilarious.

    Cool addition to the cast. I imagine he'd make a great Trask or other villainous human, or perhaps someone like The Watcher.
