With all the hype around the “Man of Steel” sequel, it is no wonder that any mentions of the characters in Batman film would become news these days. So when the Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe said that he’d be the perfect Robin in ‘Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice’, we really thought he’s going to be the new Robin in the sequel too!
But sorry to break your heart, Harry Potter fans.
The boy with the lightning bolt scar on his forehead is not going to play Robin in the next Batman movie. Radcliffe did, however, express his interest in playing the role during a “rapid fire” video Q&A with Buzzfeed. When he 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 said. “It’s happening, isn’t it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin; I’m perfect.”
Previously, director Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ gave endless possibilities for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character in the film after Batman was presumed dead. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who played the role as a young cop John Blake) has expressed his interest in resurrecting his character.
However, he mentioned in an interview that it’s not up to him to decide his role as Robin as he doesn’t own the rights to that character.
Let’s vote though! Between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe (yes, that’s a picture of them taken during Oscars 2013), who do you think will be the perfect sidekick for Batman?
