THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Could Feature Return Of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Star Peter Dinklage As Eitri

There's a lot of excitement surrounding Thor: Love and Thunder ahead of its release later this year, and it now appears as if Avengers: Infinity War star Peter Dinklage will be back as Eitri the dwarf.

Aside from a few revealing set photos, Marvel Studios has done an excellent job keeping Thor: Love and Thunder's biggest secrets under wraps. We do, however, know that Gorr the God Butcher will be the movie's lead villain, while Jane Foster is set to transform into the Mighty Thor with a reformed version of Mjolnir in hand (some recent promo art offered our best look yet at the character suited up).

Is it possible Nidavellir's giant dwarf, Eitri, is responsible for piecing the ancient weapon back together?

The Cosmic Circus has spotted a listing on IMDb suggesting that actor Peter Dinklage's hairstylist, Lane Friedman, is working on Thor: Love and Thunder with the Game of Thrones alum.

This being IMDb, it's probably best not to get too excited, but it's such a minor update that there's a good chance this information is correct. Considering Eitri was largely wasted in Avengers: Infinity War, it makes sense to give Dinklage a meatier, more satisfying role in this movie, expanding on the importance he has to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After all, we're talking about the guy who helped forge Mjolnir, Stormbreaker, and the Infinity Gauntlet, so it only feels right that Eitri is given another shot after a mostly forgettable introduction. 

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to blast into theaters on July 8!
