As we have learned over the past couple of days, Peter Dinklage is playing the villain in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now, MTV News reports that a source close to the production has told them that Dinklage will be playing Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels in the X-Men: First Class sequel.
The character, who was introduced in Uncanny X-Men #14 in 1965, was an an inventor and anthropologist who created Sentinels in response to the rise of mutants in society. Trask had two children who were mutants; one was Larry Trask, who was a precognitive and had his powers suppressed by Trask while the other, Tanya, could travel through time. Fox has yet to confirm the rumor.
