At the moment, Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest movie on the planet, and it may become the biggest in history. We’re known for a while that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) would appear — you can see his name buried at the bottom of the poster below — but his exact role remained a mystery right up until the film’s release.
When Dinklage did finally appear, it left many fans chuckling; he played Eitri the Dwarf King, the man who created Thor’s magic hammer Mjolnir. He’s also enormous, towering over even the 6’3” Chris Hemsworth. Fans didn’t fail to notice the irony:
Peter Dinklage as a giant in Avengers was a TRIP lmao

I wonder how you film the Dinklage scene. He'e CGI to be 15 feet tall. So is he even in the room when filming? Or is he looking at the floor so his character is looking at the regular sized people? I dont know how film work

Nobody on my timeline has said it yet, but Peter Dinklage in Infinity War? A+. Loved him, loved everything about his character. Okay, no more until it's out. Promise.

Not a spoiler, but Peter Dinklage in Avengers Infinity War felt like he’d wandered in from an SNL skit.

I think peter Dinklage saying “hold the door” in avengers deserves more hype. #RIPHodor

Why does Infinity War Peter Dinklage, the largest Peter Dinklage, simply not eat the other Peters Dinklage?

INFINITY WAR: Our FX team has created Thanos, the most realistic CG creation of all time.
ALSO INFINITY WAR: Here's Peter Dinklage looking like the baby in Honey, I Blew Up the Kid.
