Daniel Radcliffe's Muscled Physique Has 'X-Men' Fans Thinking The Same Thing

Daniel Radcliffe is perhaps most famous for portraying everyone's favorite boy wizard from the Harry Potter novels in the wildly popular film adaptations.

But he can no longer be associated with a character who was described as "small and skinny for his age" with the "knobbly knees" in Windsor spectacles.

Those days are long gone, and have been for some time now.

After racking up an extensive list of theatrical and film credits since leaving Hogwarts, the 34-year-old has been enjoying a successful stint in the 2019 anthology comedy series, Miracle Workers.

In the fourth season finale that just aired on Monday, Radcliffe revealed his chiseled physique during a scene in which he faced off against robot invaders to save his community and went "feral" by ripping off his clothes and stripping down to his tighty-whities.

Fans who saw the episode shared the same thought: Radcliffe would be the ideal candidate to step into the shoes previously filled by Hugh Jackman as X-Men mutant Wolverine sometime in the future.

Don't think so?

Maybe these images could change your mind.

I mean...

Once observers collected themselves, the next thing they envisioned was Radcliffe's involvement in a possible future role in the Marvel franchise.

They realized the hirsute actor was already a good fit to play Wolverine.

And then people went back to gawking.

After Harry Potter, the actor branched out in 2007 to pursue theatrical acting.

Some of his stage credits include the West End and Broadway productions of the play Equus, the Broadway musical revival of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in 2011, and the 2013 West End production of Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan.

Radcliffe has periodically returned to film in movies like The Woman in Black, Swiss Army Man, Now You See Me 2, and The Lost City.

He also played real-life people like American poet and writer Allen Ginsberg in the biopic Kill Your Darlings, and parody singer Weird Al Yankovic in the musical Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

This year, Radcliffe returns to the stage in the revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along, which will be transferring from the 2022 Off-Broadway production seen at New York Theatre Workshop.
