Ever since speculation was rife that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage could be joining the cast of Avengers Infinity War movies, fans started exploring the possibilities of which comic-book character he may portray onscreen. A major theory suggests that he could be playing Modok/George Tarleton, an average technician who became a part of the deadly experiment and lost his sanity.
Here’s the official description:
“Tarleton was subjected to hideous experiments, mutating his body into a massive-headed being possessing superhuman intelligence and extraordinary psionic powers, and the process drove him mad.” Tarleton later changed C with K for “killing”.
The Photoshop artist BossLogic has unveiled a fan art of Peter Dinklage as Modok.
The message board 4chan which was brandished as a rumor mill proved to be very credible when some of their predictions actually came true, such as Deathstroke being Batman’s villain in the upcoming solo movie, Justice League being delayed or Doctor Strange to feature Infinity stone. Given the track record, the possibility of getting it right in the case of Peter Dinklage’s role is quite strong.
According to the information dump, Dinklage is playing King of the Dwarves of Nidavellir (one of Nine realms ruled by Asgardians) or Eitri which could be huge as the character holds a lot of significance in Marvel comic-book mythology. It was introduced in 1983 in the Thor comics. The Asgardian gods have relied upon the Dwarves to forge powerful weapons such as Odin’s spear, Thor’s Mjolnir etc. In fact, one of Tony Stark’s tactical Iron-man suit is crafted from Uru (an important element in Marvel galaxy).
He will get a grand introduction in the Avengers Infinity War as Thanos literally went to Dwarves planet and forced Eitri to forge a weapon for him, which we know as Infinity gauntlet. We may well see a flashback scene of Peter Dinklage (Eitri) and Josh Brolin (Thanos).
