Peter Dinklage is joining The Avengers

The Game of Thrones star is becoming a superhero. 

Peter Dinklage has been confirmed to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as part of the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War film. 

While Dinklage himself has remained tight-lipped about his role in the film, his name is clearly listed on a newly released poster for the film.

Dinklage's name is listed next to Idris Elba. 

The actor is tipped to play a character called Pip the Troll, a hard-drinking wildcard graced with an acerbic wit. So really, it's pretty much Tyrion Lannister in space. 

Dinklage joins a massive all-star cast as part of the film, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and more.

Avengers: Infinity War is due for release April 27.
