This Daniel Radcliffe's Body Transformation Again Proves He's the Right Guy to Play Wolverine
Is Daniel Radcliffe still the best choice for the iconic Marvel role?
Ever since Disney acquired Fox, fans have been eagerly anticipating the new X-Men to debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daniel Radcliffe, mostly known for bringing Harry Potter to life on screen, has been talked about a lot for being the best choice to play one particular member of this team.
With Wolverine being one of the most popular characters, not just in X-Men but across all of Marvel, fans have been speculating on who can take on the role of Wolverine after Hugh Jackman ’s iconic portrayal. Well, that’s the role Daniel Radcliffe is often suggested for.
A Reddit user has recently shared a photo of Daniel Radcliffe from the finale of the TV series Miracle Workers, and it got fans talking about Wolverine again. In the finale of this TBS comedy, where Radcliffe plays a post-apocalyptic warrior, he shows off his impressive physique.
The actor has been working out, and it shows. In 2016, he told Vanity Fair Italia that he credits his longtime girlfriend, Erin Darke, for his evolving physique.
Based on a lively Reddit discussion about Radcliffe being the perfect Wolverine, let’s understand why. Well, for starters, he's got the height.
Wolverine in the comics is not a tall guy, and neither is Radcliffe. Even though Jackman is absolutely great in the role, he’s actually too tall.
Plus, his performance in Miracle Workers and other projects got a shoutout for being top-notch. So, the Reddit community is pretty much on board with the idea of Radcliffe becoming the next Logan.
But what does Radcliffe himself think about all the Wolverine chatter? Well, from what he said in an interview with ComicBook.com, it’s clear that the actor is not actively seeking the role, but he's not opposed to it either.
He even joked about telling Marvel to cast him when he’s bored answering this question over and over again.
Good news for Daniel Radcliffe — he can finally catch a break from these rumors because Hugh Jackman is coming back as Wolverine in Deadpool 3, so it doesn't seem like Radcliffe will be stepping into that role anytime soon.
