In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Daniel Radcliffe has said that he has recently been in conversation with Marvel, and some fans took this to mean that he would have a role in a future Marvel film, but is this really the case?
During the interview, Radcliffe said about the recent Comic-Con, “I went as Spider-Man this year, which is half ‘childish wish fulfillment to actually be Spider-Man’, and half ‘that’s the only way that I could have walked around the floor at Comic-Con’”. Radcliffe goes on to say, “I actually talked to some of the guys from Marvel not long ago, and they were saying ‘we’re just going to wait for somebody at Comic-Con to build an actual Iron Man suit, and then we’re just going to buy it and use it for the film’, like they can’t wait for that to happen”.
I don’t know about you, but this doesn’t sound like Marvel is considering him for a role to me; it sounds more like small-talk than business-talk. Fans have speculated that he is being considered for a role as Doctor Strange, but I can’t be the only one who doesn’t think this is likely. What do you think? Let us know in the comments your thoughts on Radcliffe as a potential Marvel character.
