Dinklage Not the Villain in X-Sequel

X-MEN Update from Mania.com

Peter Dinklage recently had a brief interview with Entertainment Weekly on his part in X-Men Days of Future Past. Dinklage does not see himself as the villain in the film however. “I didn’t want to play the villain,” Dinklage told EW. “He’s a man of science. He’s a man of invention. 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.”
This is great to hear because all the best villains believe in what they are doing and never see themselves as the bad guy. Dinklage plays Bolivar Trask (pictured below) and is the founder of Trask Industries. Trask Industries specializes in “genetics-based defense technology with our Mutant Detection Device and Sentinel program.”

Synopsis: This latest chapter in 20th Century Fox's X-Men saga stars Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry and Daniel Cudmore. Singer is back behind the camera.
Plot Concept: The film is based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will strike theaters on May 23, 2014.

Most villains never see themselves as villains. They just see themselves as knowing what's good for everyone else

 Dammit.  DarkXid said it before I could.  LOL.

Political commentary aside, I love Dinklage, and I think he may be the best thing about this next X-film.

 I love Dinklage. However, I'm hoping the plot will explain how Trask mutated from his original form as Bill Duke...

I found Dinklage's comments interesting. It's not just leaders and politicians who subscribe to that view, but everyday people. I'm the type of guy that makes note of that. That arrogance is actually a common plague of society. "Do you. Screw everyone else." Then to ease our conscience, we compartmentalize that so we can fit in aspects of "good-deed-doing."

There is a definite right and wrong. It goes beyond society's ideals. There is a standard. That standard is made available if folks would open their hearts to it. God has a standard and it can't be fudged. I know because I've tried.
