Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe Wants to Play Robin Opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman

Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, says he’d be “perfect” to play Robin alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman.

Earlier in the week, we reported that there are rumors Warner Bros. is already planning on a standalone Batman film starring Ben Affleck set for 2019, even if the still-in-development Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flick has yet to hit theaters. Well, if that rumored Batman reboot film does comes true, don’t be surprised if you see Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe fighting crime as Robin. In a rapid-fire interview with BuzzFeed, Radcliffe said that he’d be interested in starring in another franchise, and when asked which one, he replied “Batman,” and added he’d be “perfect” as Robin.

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.

While Radcliffe is fortunate enough to step out of the Harry Potter hole, as most assumed he’d be forever pegged, I honestly don’t know if him playing Robin would be a good idea. But then again, we have seen stranger things happen.

In other Batman v Superman-related news, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan), is reported to have landed the role of Aquaman in the upcoming film. Not only that, but this recent alleged leak has blown the lid off Warner’s upcoming DC Comics movie schedule.

Would you want to see Radcliffe be Robin? Or do you think he’d make a good Joker instead or maybe on a different comic book movie franchise altogether?
