Actor Peter Dinklage, best known for playing Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones", is in early talks for a key role in "Avengers: Infinity War." 

The 47-year-old star is expected to appear in both the next two "Avengers" films, including "Infinity War" and a yet-untitled sequel back-to-back, reported Variety.

According to a source, production on the seventh season of "Game of Thrones" has recently wrapped and the remaining schedule for the show has moved from a summer shoot to a fall shoot so, Dinklage might shoot for the film sometime in early summer.
