Daniel Radcliffe has met with Marvel; was it for Doctor Strange?

08.25.2014

In an interview with BBC Radio, Daniel Radcliffe said he recently had a conversation with Marvel, and some think he might be up for a role in one of their upcoming films. Radcliffe revealed the news while talking about dressing up as Spider-Man at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

I went as Spider-Man this year. Which is half childish wish fulfillment to actually be Spider-Man and half that’s the only way that I could have walked around the floor at Comic-Con. I actually talked to some of the guys from Marvel not long ago, and they were saying 'We're just going to wait for somebody at Comic-Con to build an actual Iron Man suit, and then we’re just going to buy it and use it for the film.' Like they can’t wait for that to happen.

Just because Daniel Radcliffe has met with Marvel doesn't mean he's definitely being considered for a role in a new movie, and as some have pointed out, maybe it was just a friendly conversation with a few people from the studio.

However, that hasn't stopped people from speculating the actor might be up for a role in Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE. Personally, I think Radcliffe looks a little too young to play the Sorcerer Supreme (especially since it's been rumored the movie won't be an origin story), but perhaps his meeting was about playing a different character in Scott Derrickson's film.

Do you think Daniel Radcliffe is up for Doctor Strange?

Joaquin Phoenix is DOCTOR STRANGE!!!

The Hollywood production newsletter Below The Line accidentally posted an official production listing for the film listing the director and accurate producers and at the bottom one sole cast member Joaquin Phoenix! They don't have a production office set up yet and are in active development but that was either a huge oops no one told us not to move or ????? He would make the film amazing and add so much credibility.As far as the director choice...juries out until we see something but Marvel

Most of their choices are curious at first and then seem genius in retrospect.

Now that Guardians has proven that a team doesn't need to be well known to work at the box office, maybe Marvel has some interest in a Excalibur/MI-13 movie?

Honestly, I think he'd be a good fit for Dr. Strange. I just saw Radcliffe in 'What If' this past weekend, and I thought his performance was great. The only problem that I have with Radcliffe getting cast in this role is that he's about 10 years too young.

While this is a huge assumption on the writer's part that Radcliffe may in any way be up for a role in a Marvel film (at least as a lead), I gotta say I don't think there's anyone left from the comics that Radcliffe could portray (again, as the lead in a movie). He's too young for Dr. Strange and most of the other characters that he could be good for have already been cast. He could have made a great Quicksilver, IMO.
I think Radcliffe could do well with DC. If the WB/DC are doing anything

I think Radcliffe could do well with DC. If the WB/DC are doing anything productive with planning out their cinematic universe, they better be looking for ways to expand on Green Lantern beyond just Hal Jordan movies. In which case, Radcliffe could make for a great Kyle Raynor.

Not a good choice for Strange, but he would be an excellent Rick Jones to Ruffalo's Hulk.

Wong

I can see Marvel wanting him for the Wong character, Stephen Strange's butler/body man. I'm not saying they should do this, but I can imagine wanting to add interest to the movie by including Harry Potter and then billing it as a Sherlock Holmes - John Watson type of duo like the recent films. Marvel certainly makes interesting casting choices, but this would delete a role for an Asian-American actor, which the internet hates (casting white people I mean, not Asians themselves :D).

If he's up for a role I feel certain that it's not for Strange. They've done a great job for casting roles and I think even they know it would be a mistake. However, I'd be down for him to be in a Marvel movie if it was the right part.

He's a decent actor, but in no way would I want him for Doctor Strange. Especially if he is established already within the MCU.

I'm still hoping Joaquin Phoenix gets the role. He would be incredible and would bring a nice dynamic to the role and Marvel Universe.

And if not, my backup choice would be Jon Hamm or Patrick Wilson. For some reason, I got a real Doctor Strange vibe from Wilson in The Conjuring. And since he dropped out of Ant Man, he would be eligible for the part.

I absolutely LOVE the idea of Patrick Wilson playing Strange! Definitely my 1st pick after Jim Caviezel (busy doing Person of Interest).

Soloist means that Dr. Strange is already established in the MCU since this ISN'T an origin movie.

No. Sounds about uninspired as the Morris Chestnut for Black Panther rumor. Find it hard to believe anyone at Marvel thought of getting Harry Potter to play Dr. Strange. And I really like Radcliffe.

I was all about Joaquin Phoenix before he was rumored & am STILL all about it. Make it happen!

Daniel Radcliffe's an excellent actor

but he's far too young for Dr. Strange, IMO. There are a lot of other properties getting looked at; I'm sure they're eyeing him for something else.

What?

I agree with daredevil. He doesn't say anything about a meeting with morrow. He only says that he "talked to some guys from marvel not long ago." That could've been while he's at, comic-con or in any scenario. As for Dr. strange... It would certainly be an unorthodox choice, but so was RDJ @ the time. I would be curious to see how that would play out

I find it hard to believe Daniel Radcliffe would want to play another wizard. Plus, he's too young.

My choices:

1. Viggo Mortensen
2. Benedict Cumberbatch
3. Antonio Banderas
4. Everyone Else

Radcliffe is a good actor but I thought Doctor Strange is a bit older than him. My pick would be Ethan Hawke.

This news in no ways indicated or even reported any more than he dressed up as Spider-Man.

Anything after that is just gossip. It didn't even say he had a meeting with Marvel like the headline claims.
