*THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILER FOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR*

It turned out that while the end was coming for a lot of our favorite heroes in Infinity War, Winter was also coming. During the film, which found over 10 years of MCU characters banding together to fight the power-hungry Thanos, there was a spectacular cameo by a Game of Thrones fan favorite – Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion Lannister)!

Even though Dinklage’s name was buried at the bottom of the official poster, fans weren’t exactly sure just what role he would be playing. He played Eitri, king of the Dwarves of Nidavellir. Eitri is the one who created Thor’s magic hammer Mjolnir, and he helped create the ax he receives in Infinity War. However, what was so cool about the concept behind his character is the fact that he is a giant. So, even though he is a dwarf – he is huge. He towers over Thor, making him look like a little rag doll next to him.

Fans, of course, did not let us down on Twitter.

We aren’t sure if Dinklage will be making an appearance in Avengers 4, but we sure enjoyed the laughs around our theater when he made his brilliant cameo in Infinity War! Now, we just have to wait for Game of Thrones to return for our weekly dose of Dinklage.
