Actor Spotlight: Peter Dinklage

There’s a good chance that you don’t recognize Peter Dinklage as the truly amazing actor he is. Okay, that is a bold statement and I’m sure many reading this would disagree. But, I have been thinking a lot about when we are speaking with friends and randomly spew out talented actors, and more often than not, Dinklage’s name never leaves our lips. Why is that?

Since the James Gunn firing, I’ve been spewing out my opinion in regards to who should be the new director to take up the mantle for the future of Guardians of the Galaxy. Taika Waititi is at the top of my list. As the man who essentially saved the Thor franchise, Waititi is a huge asset to Marvel.

So, where does any of that leave room to keep Waititi in the MCU where he is needed and wanted? According to
