Daniel Radcliffe joked about playing Wolverine in the MCU but the funny part is that's actually not that bad of an idea. He's the right height and he's shown he can get super buff for a role.— Nicholas Myers (@FullmetalNinja_) February 11, 2019
playing the character of Logan for almost seventeen years in several X-Men movies, Australian actor Hugh Jackman has officially said goodbye to the iconic character. However, there are several fans including Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds who wishes to see Hugh as Wolverine for at least one more time. But The Prestige movie star has already stated that he is done playing the role of a mutant.
Over the last couple of months, there are several rumours swirling around the casting of Wolverine for the future X-Men movies. There are rumours that Disney+ is apparently planning to have an X-Men TV series that may feature Wolverine. If this rumour turns out to be a fact, then it would be interesting to see which actor will get the opportunity to replace Hugh Jackman.
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Daniel Radcliffe was last seen in an American action movie Beast of Burden in which he played the role of Sean Haggerty — a pilot who has to deliver cocaine across the Mexican border for his final run as a drug smuggler.
In 2019, fans of Harry Potter movies are going to see Daniel Radcliffe in a comedy movie, Guns Akimbo, which is written and directed by Jason Howden and will also feature Natasha Liu and Samara Weaving.
