Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would not feature Daniel Radcliffe as Wolverine, according to the actor, well known for his portrayal as Harry Potter.
In response to rumors that he may take on the role of Wolverine in a future film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the actor has spoken out. It’s clear that fans desire Daniel Radcliffe to become Wolverine in the official film adaptation.
There’s a lot to digest in this latest news in Singapore and Hollywood entertainment. Read on to learn more.
The MCU Logan rumors
As recently as a few weeks ago, it was widely speculated that Wolverine would make his MCU debut in the forthcoming picture. Illuminerdi’s Deckelmeier, on the other hand, is adamant that this Wolverine will not be Hugh Jackman’s alter ego.
Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Professor X in X-Men: Days of Future Past, is rumored to appear in Multiverse of Madness, but no official confirmation has been given.
After Taron Egerton’s denial earlier this year, Daniel Brühl’s name started making the rounds as a possible replacement for Wolverine in subsequent films.
After the trailer’s release, many are wondering if Marvel Comics’ Illuminati will make its MCU debut in Multiverse of Madness. In the comics, the squad included Professor X, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, Black Bolt, Black Panther, and Dr. Strange.
A comeback of previously seen Spider-Man iterations is feasible thanks to the Multiverse theory, which allows for alternate versions of Marvel heroes like Andrew Garfield as well as Tobey Maguire (from Spider-Man: No Way Home) to appear.
From wands to claws
Since Hugh Jackman announced he will not be playing Logan anymore in the X-Men films going forward, the 32-year-old Harry Potter star has been often cast as the favorite pick by fans online. Daniel is now weighing in on the SG news reports of fan casting.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Daniel Radcliffe said that he gets a lot of questions about the Wolverine saga from people asking him whether he’s heard about it.
Even though he finds everything fascinating, he professes to know nothing about it. Radcliffe, on the other hand, said, “Prove me wrong, Marvel!” to that end.
Daniel became famous as the star of the Harry Potter movies, based on JK Rowling’s best-selling book series. Since that day, he has starred in a lot of indie movies.
Wolverine made its first live-action appearance in 2000’s X-Men, starring Hugh Jackman as the character. For nearly two decades, the actor played Wolverine in nine films, including the classic X-Men trilogy, the prequels, and the Wolverine solo movies, including Logan.
Following his departure from the role, Jackman has made it clear that he will not be returning to it in any capacity whatsoever.
Marvel has denied the rumors as well
Wolverine’s presence in any forthcoming MCU film has not yet been announced by Marvel. Even though Daniel previously stated that he’d never be interested in appearing in an X-Men reboot (or remake) because he likes the originals so much, fans haven’t let that stop them from wishing to witness the hero on screen again.
On Yahoo Movies in August 2019, he said the majority of his favorite films shouldn’t have to be redone. However, he doesn’t think he’d want to be a part of the remakes.
Daniel has now joined a lengthy number of performers who have recently been forced to deny or at least try to dodge involvement in the fast-expanding Marvel universe with his latest comments.
As recently as a month ago, Ryan Reynolds and Patrick Stewart both refused to answer queries about whether they’ll appear in the upcoming movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
There are whispers that Wolverine could make his MCU debut in the upcoming Doctor Strange picture, so it looks like we’ll have to wait and see whether Daniel decides to enter the spotlight as a superhero.
