The English actor said he has been dealing with it for quite a few years. But no one at Marvel has reached out to him. “Kat, it’s happened to me semi-annually for the last three years,” he told the interviewer.
That was when the 57-year-old interjected his request: “Wolverine people, can you fucking just throw him? Just do it! Do not toot around and get people to ask in the press. Just throw the man.” As she says this, Radcliffe is seen laughing and asking her to stop. For now, it’s unclear when Wolverine will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So it seems that Radcliffe will have to endure the fancasting for a while yet.
