Daniel Radcliffe addresses Wolverine Casting Rumors and why fans keep starting them

While Daniel Radcliffe is a popular choice among Marvel fans to take over the role of Wolverine, the Harry Potter star says he has not been contacted yet.

Daniel Radcliffe once again dismissed long-standing rumors that he is the next in line to play Wolverine.

In a recent appearance on The view to promote his new film The lost city, Radcliffe was asked about the possibility that he would succeed Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine. “This is something that pops up on a regular basis – because in the comics, Wolverine is short, so once in a while everyone thinks about ‘Who is a short actor?’ – but there has never been any real truth in it,” Radcliffe said. “Once in a while I get tired of answering questions sensibly, so I just make a joke like I did the other day, and it’s kind of set the rumors in motion again.” Radcliffe also said he “can not stop anyone from doing anything” when it comes to fan castings.

The actor went on to describe any comparison between him and Jackman as “inherently flattering.” Radcliffe was also asked to play the character in another recent interview, to which he gave yet another light-hearted answer. “I do not see them going from Hugh Jackman to me, but who knows? Proof that I’m mistaken Marvel.”

Since Jackman, the Adamantium claws hung up after the release of Logan in 2017, fans have wondered who should be the next actor to play the iconic mutant. Jackman has stated on several occasions that he has finished playing the character, which opens the door for a new actor to take on the role. Besides Radcliffe, Kingsman star Taron Egerton – who similarly has denied any involvement – has also been a popular fancasting choice for the character. British actor Tom Hardy has also been mentioned in fancastings since Jackman left the role.

Although Radcliffe may not take on the role, rumors of a performance by Wolverine are rumored Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness still swirling. Marvel Studios has not yet confirmed anything about the character, but Professor Charles Xavier’s appearance in the film’s latest trailer appears to confirm the appearance of at least one character from the 20th Century Fox X-Men movies, sparking rumors of an accompanying Logan cameo.

Whether it’s Radcliffe, Egerton or a recurring Jackman, fans will have to wait Doctor Strange follows to the cinemas to get some clarity – if any – about who should portray the popular X-Man in his next appearance on screen.

Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness coming to the cinema on May 6th.
