Director Bryan Singer has shared another image from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, but this time it’s not a first look at a cast member in costume or even a piece of the set. Instead, Singer has unveiled a rather curious logo on the back of one of the extras’ costumes: that of Trask Industries. While we know that there are a bevy of returning characters from the previous four X-Men films, word has been mum regarding the villainous role that Peter Dinklage is taking on. While initial speculation had Dinklage pegged for the character of Puck, it’s looking more and more likely that Dinklage might actually be playing the nefarious Bolivar Trask.

For those unfamiliar with the X-Men comics, the character of Bolivar Trask is a military scientist who is best known as the man responsible for creating the mutant-hunting robots called Sentinels. Not only does the existence of Trask Industries suggest an appearance by the character, but another recent image of Dinklage collaborating with Singer shows the actor sporting facial hair that’s not dissimilar from Trask’s look in the comics. Add in the fact that the Sentinels are said to play a major role in Days of Future Past, and it’s looking like Dinklage will be playing Trask in the film.
