Sandra Bullock asks Marvel to cast Daniel Radcliffe as the MCU version of Wolverine – Is it happening?

Sandra Bullock has expressed that she likes the people at Marvel Studios to cast her Lost City co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, as the mutant Logan/Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Retaining his prestige from splashing the nominal wizard of the well-known Harry Potter film series, Radcliffe has since shown in smaller films such as The Woman in Black and Now You See Me 2. In The Lost City, which opened in theatres the previous month, he tinkers with the villain Abigail Fairfax, who kidnaps Bullock’s character, Loretta Sage, in urges that she will support him to find a missing treasure.

20th Century Fox had formally acquired the film rights to Marvel’s X-Men in 1994, and accordingly, Marvel Studios (under Disney) was not enabled to use the characters in their MCU. Accordingly, for 17 years (2000-2017), the character of Wolverine was played by Hugh Jackman in Fox’s X-Men film series. Jackman’s portrait of the iconic hero attained his tribute and high applause from moviegoers and Marvel lovers all over the world. Then, in 2020, Fox’s distinguished cinematic franchise appeared to an edge with The New Mutants being the last movie, after the Walt Disney Company acquired 21st Century Fox. With the movie rights to the X-Men about in the hands of Marvel Entertainment, various fans have given rise to their voices heard and fancast Radcliffe as the wild mutant in an MCU reboot of the popular team.

In an interview with It’s Gone Viral about The Lost City, Bullock and Radcliffe were inquired about said fan casting. Radcliffe commenced by affirming that he’s been listening about it for a few years, but no one at Marvel has reached out to him about it, however. Bullock then interjected by blatantly asking, Wolverine people, can you agree just f***ing cast him? Just do it! While she is explaining this, Radcliffe is recognized laughing and asking her to end it.

Specific actors and personalities from Fox’s X-Men franchise have already made an impression in the MCU. This commenced last February when Evan Peters, who played Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Fox’s series, came into WandaVision’s fifth episode as a different version of the character. Although he was disclosed to be a different individual totally, there are continuing significance and fan assumptions enclosing the issue. Two months ago, when the next trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was broadcasted, it featured the voice of who many speculate to be Patrick Stewart, who played Charles Xavier/Professor X in Fox’s sequel is most plausible that the universe in which Fox’s series carried place will differ with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming movie, much like what transpired with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield‘s iterations of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home previous December.

If Radcliffe happened to be cast as the Wolverine in the MCU, this would largely lessen any chance that Jackman has to come around to the role. Still, since the story of his iteration of the character got to an acceptable end in 2017’s Logan, a recent variant of him might not go amiss. Presently, Radcliffe can be watched in The Lost City, which is now playing in theatres.
