He's brilliant in Game of Thrones and I'm trhilled he'll be joining Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Ellen Page, Jennifer Lawrence...I could keep going! It's an amazing group of actors and it's starting like this could be a film of Avenger-like proportions! The film will be helmed by Bryan Singer who tweeted the news earlier this evening.
