10 Major Plot Predictions For Avengers: Infinity War

10. Peter Dinklage Is Playing Pip The Troll


Word has it that Game of Thrones favourite Peter Dinklage has been cast in Infinity War, but Marvel's top brass are keeping mum on the nature of his role.

Those who know their comic book lore, however, will be well aware that he's most likely playing Pip The Troll.

Pip is a Laxidazian alien who becomes mutated after getting sloshed on a mutagenic hallucinogenic ale, which sounds like something Tyrion Lannister might do.

This tenuous link between the two characters has nothing to do with fans' reason for suspecting Dinklage has been cast as Pip, though.

More significantly, the alien troll has a role in the Infinity Gauntlet comic series, which the movie is loosely based on, and is a known associate of Adam Warlock, whose appearance in the MCU has been confirmed by Guardians of the Galaxy.

Add to that the fact Dinklage has been spotted rocking a striking red hairdo, as reported here by MovieWeb, and the evidence is stacking up.

Warlock didn't make the cut for Infinity War, with the filmmakers choosing to include Thanos's daughter, Nebula, instead.

His famous cocoon did, however, feature in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and an appearance by Pip in Infinity War would tie in nicely with his full debut in chapter three of the space opera.
