Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in talks to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the cast of Avengers : Infinity War and its untitled sequel. While Peter Dinklage has been a fixture of both TV and film since the 90s, it wasn’t until landing the fan favorite role of Tyrion Lannister in the HBO phenomenon Game of Thrones that he truly broke out, quickly becoming a household name in the years since that series’ 2011 premiere.

If you take a look at “nerdy” things that have hit the mainstream, it’s hard to think of anything more popular than the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Game of Thrones (only Star Wars and The Walking Dead can even compete). Well, hold onto your butts, because everyone’s favorite Lannister could be joining the MCU. According to Entertainment Weekly, Peter Dinklage is in early talks to join Avengers : Infinity War (cue excited shrieking).

Peter Dinklage is reportedly in talks to star in Marvel's 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

The 47-year-old actor - who has portrayed Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series 'Game of Thrones' since 2011 - is wanted to play a key role in the eagerly-awaited new comic book movie, which is expected to begin filming around the mid-point of 2017.

The role being discussed with Peter remains unclear, but he could feature in both of the next two 'Avengers' movies, which are being shot back-to-back, according to Variety.

Previous cast members, such as Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, are already on board to return to the money-spinning franchise, while Anthony and Joe Russo have replaced Joss Whedon as the director.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier this week that Zoe Saldana is to reprise her role as Gamora for 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

The 38-year-old actress is set to don green body paint once again to play the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' character, and while Zoe is thrilled to be returning to the franchise, she is not looking forward to spending hours getting ready.

She shared: "I don't know when they're going to let me read it.

"I'm not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every film I finally arrive on set, I feel so happy and lucky to be there."

'Avengers: Infinity War' is also expected to star Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Karen Gillan as Nebula - another character from Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' comics and movies.
