Bolivar Trask may be the “main villain” in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Peter Dinklage now sees him a different way. The Game of Thrones star “didn’t want to play the villain,” and defended character Trask in the Bryan Singer movie. "He actually sees what he's doing as a good thing - [his ambition is] definitely blind and he's quite arrogant. He's strove all his life for a certain respect and attention," Dinklage explained to Entertainment Weekly. “I didn't want to play the villain. He's a man of science. He's a man of invention. Trask is the creator of the Sentinel robots who are designed to save the world against the X-Men mutants that Trask sees as a threat to his goal of protecting humans from extinction. The industry was the subject of a marketing campaign when the Sentinel robots inner workings were shown on a map. In the film, a presidential adversary challenges Trask in the time-spanning film. “He’s up against Richard Nixon,” Dinklage said with a wry smile. “He’s got some hurdles.” The movie is based loosely off of Chris Claremont and John Byrne's classic time-travel storyline and opens May 23, 2014 in the US includes the cast from the trilogy and 1960s X-Men: First Class including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Fan Bingbing, Nicholas Hoult, Anna paquin, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore, James McAvoy, Lucas Till, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Aden Canto, Evan Peters, and Josh Helman.
