Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe: "I'm Perfect" To Play Robin
Could The Boy Who Lived become the Boy Wonder? At least one person hopes so -- Harry Potter himself.
In a "rapid fire" video Q&A with Buzzfeed, embedded below, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe -- who has been seen most commonly in indie films since the conclusion of Harry Potter as a franchise -- was asked if he'd ever be willing to appear in another massive movie universe.
"Batman. If they reboot that again I'll do that too," Radcliffe answered. "It's happening, isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin; I'm perfect."
It was a widely-reported statistic that for a number of years, Warner Bros.' top-grossing movie was either a Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or Batman film. With all three of those franchise inactive until Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, some experts had speculated that the studio would suffer. Last year, they managed okay with the help of some big international numbers for Man of Steel and Pacific Rim, among others -- but it's hard to imagine it wouldn't be attractive to get Radcliffe back into the fold -- and in the Batman films, no less.
Rumors and speculation have suggested that Dick Grayson may appear in the film -- or at least be referenced -- but in all likelihood that he would be Nightwing, not Robin. That means for Radcliffe's short-pants dreams to come true, he'd likely have to play Jason Todd, Tim Drake or Damian Wayne...unless director Zack Snyder was really bold and introduced the English actor as Terry McGinnis.
