Holy casting, Batman – it appears that Daniel Radcliffe would quite like to play a superhero, and if he can’t be the character he’d really like to be, he’ll be his sidekick.
Buzzfeed reports that when asked if after Harry Potter, he’d like to join another franchise, he replied, “Batman. If they reboot that again I’ll do that too. It’s happening, isn’t it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I’m perfect.”
We’re not sure how serious he is, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it gets director Zack Snyder thinking. It’s probably too late to add Dan to the already shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Justice League is also in the works – which could have a Robin – and there are also unconfirmed rumours there will be a standalone Bat-flick called The Batman in 2019.
To be honest, this is probably more pipe dream than anything that might become true – but personally we’d love to see Dan as Batman’s sidekick.
