It looks like Daniel Radcliffe might be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all. A new report claims that the Harry Potter star is being considered for the lead role in the upcoming Disney+ series Moon Knight.
The report comes from comicbook, which states that Radcliffe is currently one of the actors that Marvel Studios is eyeing for the role of Marc Spector. However, the other stars being considered for the part were not revealed.
Radcliffe would be an interesting choice to play the mysterious Marc Spector, who is known for taking on several identities throughout the comic books. On the other hand, we already know that the Now You See Me 2 actor is quite versatile and could easily take on any role. However, it’s important to point out that Marvel Studios has not made any casting announcements about Moon Knight just yet. With that in mind, it would be best to take this with a grain of salt.
This isn’t the first time that Radcliffe’s name has been connected to a Marvel project. It was previously reported that the Horns star could replace Hugh Jackman as the new Wolverine in the MCU. However, Radcliffe has since claimed that he doesn’t want to play the mutant.
Radcliffe has just completed work on the thriller Escape from Pretoria, which is scheduled for release on March 6, 2020. Moon Knight has not yet been given an official release date.
