Daniel Radcliffe Says he would be the “Perfect” Robin in the Batman Films

Could the Boy Wizard be playing the Boy Wonder?  Well, if Daniel Radcliffe ever decided to get back into a big franchise again, it looks like he’d at least be interested in playing Batman’s sidekick, Robin.  Now before you get your tights in a bunch, this was his answer as part of a rapid-fire question session which included such hard-hitting queries as “What’s your favorite band?” and “Who’s the last person who texted you?”, so it’s not exactly an iron-clad contract.  Then again, the Batman reboot is just getting underway with Ben Affleck set to star for at least two, and possibly three films going forward.  Could Radcliffe follow in the fleet footsteps of Chris O’Donnell and Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

In a quick Q&A with Buzzfeed, Radcliffe was asked which franchise he’d like to join next.  He answered with the following:

“Batman. If they reboot that again I’ll do that too. It’s happening, isn’t it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I’m perfect.”

What do you think?  Would Radcliffe’s Robin actually be a perfect fit?  Or was the Harry Potter star just showing off his wry British humor?  Let us know your thoughts in the comment section, and watch the rest of the interview with Radcliffe below:
