If the race to figure out which character Peter Dinklage will be portraying in Avengers: Infinity War were a regatta (a word which here means a sailboat race) then the winds have certainly shifted in favor of the Pip the Troll. Yesterday the actor was seen in a salon on the Lower East Side of Manhattan having his hair dyed a bright red, matching the mane of the one time Laxidazian prince.
While a recent 4chan leak lead a lot of people to believe Dinklage was portraying Eitri, King of the Dwarves, this makes him a little more unlikely as almost all the source material (except a cartoon) has portrayed Eitri as having grey hair. Additionally, this should certainly put to rest any lingering thoughts of Dinklage taking on the roles of M.O.D.O.K. or Puck as neither of those two have much use for flaming red hair.
Given that this is an adaptation of Jim Starlin’s Infinity saga, Pip (a creation of Starlin’s) has always made the most sense and fans of the source material are likely also following some form of “if Pip, then Adam Warlock” logic. We will certainly be keeping watch for at least one more major role to be filled in Avengers: Infinity War. With pretty much every actor assembling in Atlanta soon, it’s also possible that Dinklage could shoot a post-credit stinger for one of the upcoming 2017 films, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok (though one of these seems to be a less likely landing spot for such a clip).
Avengers: Infinity War begins filming next week and will be in theaters May 4, 2018!
