AlphaFlight.net - Speculation: Puck To Appear In X-Men:Days Of Future Past Film?
  • Speculation: Puck To Appear In X-Men:Days Of Future Past Film? *UPDATED*

    X-Men: Days Of Future Past direct Bryan Singer set the internet rumour-mill alight with talk of Puck appearing in the next X-Men film when he tweeted:

    "Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!"


    While nothing official has been set, it has echoes of Puck's appearance in the Frank Tieri written Weapon X: Days Of Future Now series where he was part of the X-Men; something that's a lot more realistic now that he's part of Uncanny X-Force.

    Whether or not Dinklage's role actually turns out to be Puck or not it's definitely a good year for Eugene so far!

    Although we've seen members of Alpha Flight mentioned in text on screens in X2 and the 'Heather & Travis Hudson' characters in X-Men Origins:Wolverine if true this would mark the first Alphan to appear on the big screen.

    X-Men: Days Of Future Past is scheduled for 2014.


    UPDATE:
    Variety have reported that they've learnt from 'sources' that Dinklage is to play the main villain in the film.

    While there could be a chance that Puck is a villain as the movie-verse doesn't have to be true to the comics, it does seem likely that he's not going to play Puck.
    Although the 'sources' could be incorrect Dinklage playing a major part sounds a lot more feasible.

      If you can do that, its a very well done film.
      You'll find that many of the films to which we cling depend greatly on one's point of view.

      Forget the X-Men comics, and 'vibe' of the 60s, and you can love it.
      And I do!

      I wasn't expecting much from it due to how much I disliked X-Men 3, but I really enjoyed First Class.

      And now watching The Last Stand I don't actually mind it as much as I did. If I forget about Juggernaut. And Cyclops' death. And Xavier's death.

      I've never thought X-Men 3 was a bad movie per se... just nowhere near as good as the two that preceeded it.

      I really liked First Class a lot! I was completely sucked in to Magneto's character and his whole take on the situation. I wanted to join the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants!

      I HATED X3 so much, just unncessary deaths (though Professor X did return in the end) and the chracterization was so off.

      I agree. I liked X1 a fair amount, thought X2 had some decent moments, and thought X3 completely ruined everything. That was why I was so happy when they rebooted the franchise with First Class. If X3 had been good, I probably never would have bought into the First Class movie, despite excellent acting and scripting; but with the major suckage of that movie, it made accepting anything new and re-invented that came along that much easier.

      According to this:

      To be fair, I was 99% sure it wouldn't be Puck when I posted it, but it's nice to see the internet ablaze and people discovering Puck through rumours...

      Calm down, everything's under control.

      Nice!

      I prefer Martin Klebba, star of such excellent films as Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and was really great in the superhero tv series The Cape.

      I was about to bring up The Cape, but I didn't know his name.

      I've only seen the first ep, but I liked it; and I thought the actor would make a great Puck.

      Too bad it's not Puck, because that mustach really does give him a Puck look!

      And the rumour train pulls round again!

      Pretty sure he'll be playing Pip The Troll, but it's always good to get people mentioning Puck.
      However; If any Alphans were going to be in the Avengers/Captain Marvel films it'd be Puck as he didn't debut in Uncanny X-Men.

      I'm hoping for puck, but he will prob be cast in a role like Martin freeman and be in a non superhero/villain role.
