After starring in the immensely successful Harry Potter franchise for nearly a decade, Daniel Radcliffe has taken on a number of much different genres, from indie horror (The Woman in Black) to period dramas (Kill Your Darlings) and even a romantic comedy (the upcoming What If). During a recent interview with Buzzfeed, the actor expressed his desire to delve into the superhero world, revealing he wants to play Robin alongside Ben Affleck's Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here's what the actor had to say, when asked if he would consider joining another franchise.
"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."
Of course, production is already under way on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, under the direction of Zack Snyder, but since this adventure sets up the highly-anticipated Justice League, it's possible that Robin could be showing up in that movie.
If he does eventually sign on to play Robin, it wouldn't be the first time that an actor's statement to the press has lead to actually landing a role. Channing Tatum revealed in several interviews that he really wants to play Gambit, before producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed last month that the actor is in talks to play the Cajun mutant.
