The Gifted Should Bring Back Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask

Bolivar Trask in Days of Future Past (2014)

While FOX’s X-Men spinoff show The Gifted has yet to be renewed for a second season, it’s certainly laid some interesting groundwork for future tie-ins to the X-Men movies. And what better way to explore those connections in the future, than by bringing back Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels?

Things are starting to come to a head as the complex connections between the Strucker family and the history of mutants are revealed. In recent weeks, Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) has learned that not only does he come from a family of mutants, but that his grandparents were notorious mutant terrorists. The Strucker twins had the same powers as Reed’s children and, …

Star Wars: Every Type Of Lightsaber, Ranked Weakest To Strongest

Star Wars isn’t Star Wars without the Force and lightsabers. Ever since 1977’s A New Hope, the exploration of the Force and the battling of lightsabers have been crucial elements to this franchise. Much of 2015’s The Force Awakens was about finding Luke and returning his original lightsaber to him.
