Daniel Radcliffe’s Answer To Why He Talked About Playing DC Comics’ Robin Is Short But Sweet

Holy Hogwarts, Batman!


Actors have a lot of work to do after they act. There’s the never-ending line of interviews (from folks like ourselves) where you have to answer the same questions over and over. But Daniel Radcliffe (who we just saw in the thrilled new trailer for Horns) was recently asked a fun bonus question: which franchise would he join next? To which he answered it would certainly be the Batman franchise and he could play Robin. But the burning question is, why did he say it at all?

Ok, it’s not a burning question to me personally but apparently others thought so. It’s funny because I remember seeing sites run with the story about Radcliffe playing Robin and deciding we wouldn’t bother because it was really such and off-the-cuff and blatantly jokey response. However, MTV News felt they need to ask the actor why he said he’d be perfect for Robin. He replied.

It was just another flipping thing I said.

Daniel Radcliffe, I love you.

He went on to tell them, “When you do interview, you’re faced with a choice. Either be the most boring person on Earth or get ridiculous things written about you from time to time.”
