What Made The Fans Think That Daniel Radcliffe Is The Perfect Choice For Wolverine

Rumors regarding casting the 34-year-old English actor as the next Wolverine were so strong that even the star himself couldn’t ignore it. Last year October during his appearance on The View he was asked about what he thinks regarding his link to the character Wolverine and the Harry Potter star denied it by saying.

“This is something that comes up every so often, I think because in the comics Wolverine is short, so every so often they’re like, ‘Who’s a short actor?’ There’s never been any actual truth to it.” he added, “Every so often I get bored of answering the questions sensibly, so I just make a joke like I did the other day, and that sort of has reignited the rumors of it, but there’s nothing going on.”

However, in recent times things have changed and right now it looks like he is all set to play the “secret role” for the upcoming movie Deadpool 3. The two factors that lit up the fire of rumors were both his scene from the TV series Miracle Workers and a sudden confirmation from a trustworthy Twitter handle.
