Prepare to embark on an adventure into the mystical realm of Daniel Radcliffe and the never-ending saga of Wolverine rumors! For years, rumors have swirled like a wizard’s potion that Radcliffe might just be in line to inherit Wolverine’s adamantium mantle.

Why, you ask? Well, it turns out he’s not just any old muggle. Fans noticed he’s got the perfect height to rub shoulders with Wolverine, and he can whip up that iconic hairstyle like a true mutant maestro. It’s as if he was plucked from the pages of a comic book!

In Radcliffe’s TV comedy series, “Miracle Workers,” the actor shape-shifts like a wizard by playing a different character in each season. And in the most recent one, he transformed into Sid, the post-nuclear road warrior.

In the season finale, Radcliffe left his inhibitions behind and bared it all, revealing an awe-inspiring physique that had fans losing their marbles. It’s like he had been bench-pressing adamantium bars in his sleep!

However Daniel finally decided to spill the magical beans and address the never-ending whispers about those shiny Adamantium claws. In a Vanity Fair lie detector test, he was put to the test with a question that had everyone on the edge of their seats: Was he secretly beefing up to become the next Wolverine?

His answer? “Nope. I got all beefed up because I’m a bit obsessed, and I just want to… And, come on, have you seen my parents? They’re like fitness maniacs. So, no, it’s not a secret Wolverine mission. I’m flattered, truly, but I’m not your claw-wielding superhero.”

When asked if he’d like to slip into Wolverine’s boots, he told ComicBook.com, “So many times, people come to me like, ‘Hey man, heard about the Wolverine news, that’s pretty cool.’ No, I don’t know anything about it.

He even dared Marvel to prove him wrong, saying, “But who knows? Prove me wrong, Marvel.

And to Entertainment Weekly, he added with a wink and a nod, “Wolverine is short, so every so often they’re like, ‘Who’s a short actor?’ There’s never been any actual truth to it.

So, dear readers, it seems Radcliffe enjoys keeping us on the edge of our seats! Will he ever become the next Wolverine? Only time will tell in this whirlwind of superhero speculations!

Daniel Radcliffe Says He’d Love To Play This Character In New Harry Potter TV Show

It’s been nearly 12 years since the final installment in the Harry Potter film series hit the big screen and yet we still continue to love the Wizarding World with all of our muggle hearts! The series that gave us our favourite golden trip in Harry, Ron and Hermione continues to be watched by millions of people EVERY year and has since been licensed by Netflix with all 8 films premiering on Netflix‘s top 10 most watched list when added last month to their library.


While the Fantastic Beast series failed to recreate the nostalgia and capture the attention that the original series of films did, one thing that DEFINITELY caught our attention was HBO’s announcement that they are producing a brand new series based on the 7 Potter books by author JK Rowling.

With the announcement came mass speculation as to who could fill the boots of the all the original cast who did an incredible job the first time round with many actors like Robbie Coltrane, Helen McCrory and Alan Rickman sadly passing away since filming wrapped. The cast is what created such a brilliant series as much as the beautiful sets and the fantastic beasts (see what we did there!) and so we can’t wait to see just who is picked to act in this new Wizarding World instalment.


Seems me might not have to wait much longer for one particular role…

During the interview TheMovieDweeb was able to ask the question everyone wanted to know the answer to ‘Will you be in the new show and which character would you play?

In the below clip you can see TheMovieDweeb ask the question and the response from Radcliffe!

@themoviedweeb HBO, you better call Daniel about playing Sirius Black.

So what was Daniel Radcliffe’s answer? Well it’s no surprise that after idolising the actor who played the role so well in the film that Dan Rad chose the incredible character Sirius Black, played by the amazing Gary Oldman!


Sirius Black is the godfather to Harry Potter in the series, a role model who shares some really cute and touching scenes with the boy wizard and we think that Daniel Radcliffe would be the PERFECT actor to pass on the baton to the news series!

HOWEVER during the interview Daniel Radcliffe does sadly declare that he WON’T be involved in the new Harry Potter series which is disappointing and devastating news for Potterheads everywhere. However after playing The Boy Who Lived for 10 years in eight films I think we’ve had our fair share of Daniel Radcliffe’s time in the Wizarding World and we can’t wait to see who IS going to be cast!

Who would you like to play the famous boy wizard? Got any ideas for the perfect Severus Snape? Who would you NOT want to see as Voldemort? As always let us know here at Social Junkie!


21 Actors From The Harry Potter Films Who Are No Longer With Us

Calling all fellow wizards and witches, it’s time to raise our wands and remember the magical stars who’ve left us from the Harry Potter universe. Since the very first Harry Potter movie graced our screens in 2001 with “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” we’ve laughed, cried, and cheered alongside a fantastic cast of characters. But, my friends, the bittersweet truth is that not all of them are still with us.

We’ve had to bid farewell to 21 talented actors who brought the wizarding world to life. From the mighty Professor Snape, played by the unforgettable Alan Rickman, to the wise Professor Dumbledore portrayed by the legendary Richard Harris. Even the gentle giant Hagrid, portrayed by Robbie Coltrane, has ventured into the great beyond.

But it’s not just the headlining heroes who have left us. The magic of Harry Potter extends to the supporting cast as well. Elizabeth Spriggs, who played the enchanting Fat Lady guarding Gryffindor Tower, and Verne Troyer, our beloved Griphook, have also passed away.

1) Richard Harris – Albus Dumbledore

Prior to Michael Gambon taking over for the remaining six Harry Potter films, Harris played the grandfatherly headmaster in the first two films and many fans were delighted with the casting as he looked as so many fans imagined!

2) Alan Rickman – Severus Snape

Fans of Harry Potter were very saddened by Severus Snape’s loss, but Alan Rickman’s death was by far a bigger shock. Tragically, the actor passed away in January 2016 after receiving a confidential diagnosis of terminal cancer.

3) Robert Knox – Marcus Belby

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Knox, an English actor, played Marcus Belby. Tragically, Knox was fatally stabbed outside a London pub after getting involved in a fight to defend his brother.

Later, a documentary was produced on the actor’s tragic passing and the cast of the Potter films wore ribbons in his memory at the premiere.

Spriggs was well-known for portraying The Fat Lady, a living portrait who watches over the Gryffindor common area. Comedian Dawn French subsequently took over the part.

Alfred Burke, who was well-known for his roles as Frank Marker in Public Eye and subsequently as Armando Dippett, Dumbledore’s predecessor at Hogwarts, died in February 2011 at the age of 92.

7) Jimmy Gardner – Ernie Prang

In the third Harry Potter movie from 2004, Gardner, a WWII veteran who had been acting since the 1960s, played Knight Bus driver Ernie Prang.

8) Eric Sykes – Frank Bryce

Frank Bryce, a Muggle who lived in Little Hangleton, the same community which the Riddle family also called home, was portrayed by comic actor Eric Sykes. He worked as their gardener and eventually was the main suspect in the death of the family, but viewers will know he was innocent.

9) Richard Griffiths – (Uncle) Vernon Dursley

Richard Griffiths, a renowned British actor of theatre and cinema recognised for performances in The History Boys, Withnail and I, and Chariots of Fire, was the only person who could have brought Harry’s Uncle Vernon to life and fans loved to loathe him!

10) David Ryall – Elphias Doge

In the 2010 film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Ryall took over Peter Cartwright’s role as Elphias Doge, a member of the Order of the Phoenix but sadly passed away, 2014’s Christmas Day.

11) Dave Legeno – Fenrir Greyback

Fenrir Greyback was a werewolf and Death Eater with a sinister propensity for harming innocent youngsters, as the really die-hard fans would know. Tragically, the actor who played him passed away in July 2014 in Death Valley, California, after appearing in three Harry Potter films.

12) Roger Lloyd Pack – Barty Crouch Senior

Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Trigger in the enduring sitcom Only Fools and Horses, went on to play Barty Crouch Senior, a powerful Ministry of Magic official in the series furing Goblet of Fire.

16) Robert Hardy – Cornelius Fudge

Magical Minister Robert Hardy CBE, who had acting credentials in theatre, cinema, and television before his passing in 2017, played Cornelius Fudge in the Harry Potter movies.

17) Verne Troyer – Griphook

Verne Troyer played Mini Me in the Austin Powers movie, which is perhaps his most well-known role, but he also played Griphook in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone until Warwick Davies took over.

18) Helen McCrory – Narcissa Malfoy

Before her tragic passing in 2021, McCrory had amassed a large following because to her performances in films like Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter series and Polly in Peaky Blinders.

19) Robbie Coltrane – Rubeus Hagrid

The world was in mourning in 2022 after learning of the passing of renowned Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane, who is best known for his role as Hagrid, the affable groundskeeper in the Harry Potter series.

20) Leslie Phillips – The Sorting Hat

Phillips was well-known for appearing in the Carry On films and for lending his voice to The Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter films. He passed away in November of last year after building a successful and protracted acting career.

21) Michael Gambon – Albus Dumbledore (2)

Sadly the news of Michael Gambon’s passing is so sudden and yet he contributed to 6 of the Harry Potter films after taking over from Richard Harris in which he showed a feistier side to the headmaster and fans came to love him. Not to mention his most famous quote ‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light’

As fans of the wizarding world, we’ll always cherish the enchanting moments these actors gifted us. Let’s hold onto those memories, rewatch the films, and keep their magic alive in our hearts. After all, “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home,” as J.K. Rowling once said. And so will the enchanting performances of these dearly departed actors in the world of Harry Potter.
