Harry Potter as the next Wolverine? Sandra Bullock once pitched the idea. While the casting has not happened yet, it is always a possibility now that Hugh Jackman has retired from the role. Yes, he will be appearing in Deadpool in the role, but not in the movie centered around the mutant. But perhaps the British actor Daniel Radcliffe could come back into the limelight in this new avatar.
His The Lost City co-star certainly seems to see the potential in him. Backing the internet’s wish and his talents, she tried to pitch the role to Marvel during an interview.
Sandra Bullock wants Daniel Radcliffe to fill in Hugh Jackman’s shoes
While Radcliffe cast magic with his role as Harry Potter for years, Bullock thinks he can also claw his way into Marvel. The duo appeared for an interview last year on IGV Present to promote their movie The Lost City. During this, the host touched on the topic of how people are discussing Radcliffe being cast as Wolverine. Sandra told him to just do the role, but he confessed how no one has offered him Wolverine yet. To which she said, “Wolverine people, can you please just f*cking cast him. Just do it.” She jokingly suggested they stop asking interviewers to ask and do it themselves.
Even Radcliffe asked the interviewer if he was an agent of Marvel, but the host seemed happy to have touched on the topic. If nothing, it proved that the actor is aware of his fan’s wish to see him in the role.
