Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe On Replacing Hugh Jackman As Wolverine

Hugh Jackman Daniel Radcliffe Wolverine Harry PotterHarry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed he would very much be up for replacing Hugh Jackman as a new Wolverine.

During a new interview, Daniel Radcliffe responded to Google query asking whether or not the Harry Potter actor would be the new Wolverine after Hugh Jackman. After seventeen years of playing the character in the X-Men film franchise established by Bryan Singer, Hugh Jackman exited the role of the mutant clawed hero with the critically-acclaimed film Logan in 2017 but we could be seeing a new and possibly younger Wolverine following the Disney-Fox merger sooner than expected.

Earlier this week, veteran X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner opened up on passing the baton to Kevin Feige at Marvel Studios, confirming the superhero visionary is indeed searching for a new actor to play Wolverine and admitted it should go to a younger actor due to the physicality required for the role. Rumors have swirled that Disney is considering an X-Men series for their upcoming streaming service Disney+ which is set to launch by the end of the year.

Daniel Radcliffe took to Instagram, sharing the video in which he jokes that there will be a new movie in which Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine goes into a hotwash only to come out, revealing the Harry Potter actor in the role. Check it out below!

So what do you think? Would Daniel Radcliffe make for a good replacement for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine? Let us know in the comments below!

The X-Men film saga continues this summer with Dark Phoenix which could be the final installment of the main film series.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is directed by Simon Kinberg and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

“In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.”

The film is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men franchise as we learn it.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 10

Superhero Cinema 2018 Black Panther Avengers Thanos The Incredibles Aquaman2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.

Here are the theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”

  • Aseno Terhüja

    Nope. I will never watch wolverine again.

  • Kevin R Dunn

    Its so ridiculous to think of Radcliff as the Wolverine, I won’t even comment on the chance of it. Oh, I just did didn’t I? Then you know my answer. Nuff said.

    • Fenix

      Don’t call him “the wolverine”.

  • Eric

    I think he would make a pretty good wolverine, and he’s young enough to fill the role for a lot of upcoming MCU movies

  • Wade Aiken

    I don’t see Radcliffe as Wolverine, but rather as Mr Miracle

  • Jeff C

    He has the right height, one of Wolverine’s characteristics is being short. DR is around 5’6″ When it was announced years ago about Hugh Jackman being cast I couldn’t imagine him in the role either and it worked. Let him audition and go from there. I think it would be tough for any actor following HJ’s almost 20 years of playing the role.

  • Jeon

    We would have to pack on insane mass. I haven’t hated him in other things but IMO it would be a really hard sell.

  • amit shastri

    I think,let alone the height,even his voice will not be able to fill what HJ has done in these years.It will be disastrous.
    Tom hardy will be able to do it best.
