Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, is in early talks for a role in Avengers: Infinity War, the first part of Marvel Studios’ Phase Three cinematic finale, Variety reported Wednesday.

It seems extremely unlikely that he would reprise his role as Boliver Trask from X-Men: Days of Future Past though it’s technically a Marvel property, the X-Men films belong to Fox, which so far hasn’t shared characters with Disney/Marvel (a la Sony for Spider-Man: Homecoming).

Variety notes that Game of Thrones‘ new fall shooting schedule cleared the way for Dinklage to board Infinity War, which starts production this summer.
