Yep, Peter Dinklage is Bolivar Trask in "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Back when the "Game of Thrones" actor was first cast in the over-stuffed mutant sequel, we broke the news - from an anonymous but reliable source - that Dinklage was the creator of the Sentinels.

And that influence is about to felt on an even greater scale, as the sequel to "X-Men: First Class" is titled, you guessed it, "X-Men: Days of Future Past." With that in mind, what exactly happened in this two issue epic, and what has been the long term effect for Marvel’s mutants?
