Daniel Radcliffe Responds To Wolverine MCU Casting Rumours: "Prove Me Wrong, Marvel!"

Daniel Radcliffe has dismissed rumours that he's Hugh Jackman's replacement as the mutton-chopped mutant with the retractable adamantium blades.

Daniel Radcliffe has denied speculation that he could play Wolverine.

The Harry Potter actor has been suggested as a potential replacement for Hugh Jackman as the superhero but he doubts that Marvel will choose him to play the character.

Speaking to ComicBook.com to promote his new film The Lost City, Radcliffe, 32, said: "So many times, people come to me like, 'Hey man, heard the Wolverine news, that's pretty cool.' No, I don't know anything about it.

"Like, I appreciate that somebody is clearly going like 'Wolverine's actually short in the comic books, you should get a short guy to do it!'

"But I don't see myself, I don't see them going from Hugh Jackman to me. But who knows? Prove me wrong, Marvel."

Radcliffe has previously suggested that he doesn't want to play Wolverine because of his love for the X-Men' films means he wouldn't want them to be remade.

He said in a 2019 interview with Yahoo! Movies UK: "Most of the films that I love I don't think I would want to see remade. And I certainly don't think that I would want to be in the remakes of them."

Radcliffe is currently playing parody singer 'Weird Al' Yankovic in the biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. He described it as "a huge responsibility" to portray the 'Eat It' hitmaker in the movie.

He said: "Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don't take lightly, and I'm honoured to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 percent unassailably true story of Weird Al's depraved and scandalous life."

Radcliffe has said that he found it "liberating" to star in more creative projects after rising to fame as the titular wizard in the Harry Potter franchise.

He told Empire last year: "I've actually found it's an incredibly liberating thing, to do the biggest thing you're ever gonna do really f****** early. The financial success thing, that's done. So just do things that make you happy."

The Lost City opens in Singapore cinemas on Apr 21.
