Daniel Radcliffe Jokes About Being The Next Wolverine

Daniel Radcliffe has joked about possibly replacing Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine, but some fans actually want to see it happen, it seems.

Child stars often end up turning into weird adults, which isn’t terribly surprising when you consider that their formative years are spent with the world watching their every move. So, with that in mind, it’s pretty remarkable that the three young stars of the Harry Potter franchise – Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – have turned out pretty well-adjusted.

Of the three, though, it’s Radcliffe who’s kept the busiest and remained the most in the public spotlight, with the actor obviously eager to show everyone that he’s not just a pair of glasses, a wand and a rather fetching scar. His post-Potter gigs have ranged from a critically acclaimed turn in The Woman in Black, bringing Allen Ginsberg to life in Kill Your Darlings, playing someone cursed with devil horns in Horns and, uh, a fart-propelled corpse in Swiss Army Man – among other roles. But could he be about to don the adamantium claws and suit up as our next Wolverine at some point in the near future?

Radcliffe’s been a popular pick amongst fans when it comes to who they want to see replace Hugh Jackman and while there’s been nothing official to say he’s being eyed or is even interested in the role, the actor is at least aware of the demands from his fanbase and recently joked about making them a reality.

While appearing in one of WIRED’s Autocomplete Interviews, he responded to some of the most searched-for things about him on Google and when the question “Is Daniel Radcliffe the new Wolverine?” popped up, he said the following:

“There’s going to be a new Wolverine movie, in which it starts off with Hugh Jackman being put into a hot wash. And then when he comes out, it’s me. So yes, I’m very happy to announce that here.”

Clearly, he’s just joking around and having a bit of fun. but it’s an intriguing prospect to think about and as we said above, a lot of fans would like to see this happen. Then again, we have no indication right now in regards to what Marvel’s hoping to do with Wolverine once the Disney/Fox deal goes through (aside from the fact that they want a young actor in the role), so it’ll be some time before we learn of who will be playing the iconic mutant the next time we see him on our screens.

That being said, what do you think of Daniel Radcliffe taking on the part? Would you like to see him suit up and join the X-Men franchise? As always, let us know your thoughts down below.
