Daniel Radcliffe on rumours he’s X-Men’s next Wolverine

Daniel Radcliffe has spent a lot of time shedding his Harry Potter days.

According to Deadline,  even though rumours pointed to him succeeding Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine in the X-Men movie franchise, the English actor is debunking all those claims.

“It’s purely a press tour rumour; I say something, and then occasionally I get bored of answering that way so I say something different, and that sets it off again. I should just never open my mouth,” the outlet quoted him asbrecently telling GQ in an interview.

Being easily identifiable by a role is something Radcliffe knows can be difficult to shake off and that’s why he says he doesn’t “ever want to get locked into something that I am not sure I will be able to love the same amount the whole time.”

Earlier this year and while appearing on The View, co-host Ana Navarro asked Radcliffe about the rumours he was next to play Wolverine, something that he denied. 

The only thing that is certain, is that for now, Wolverine will be continued to be portrayed by Jackman. 

In September of this year, Jackman confirmed he would be reprising his role as Wolverine for Deadpool 3 which is expected to be released on November 8, 2024.
