Daniel Radcliffe revealed in a recent interview with Metro UK that he had interest in playing the title role in Marvel’s upcoming franchise reboot, “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
“I would have been a good Spider-Man, but the boat has sailed on that,” Radcliffe said. “And I’m very happy to watch Tom Holland do it. He’s fantastic.”
The 27-year-old actor expressed his love for superhero movies and even stated that he’d be down to act in a new franchise — though not one similar in length to his decade-long role in the “Harry Potter” films.
“I’m not sure if I’d sign up for something that was another seven or eight films or ten years,” Radcliffe said. “But a shorter franchise, yeah.”
Radcliffe was promoting the UK release of his acclaimed new film “Swiss Army Man,” in which he plays a magical, talking corpse.
Meanwhile, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set for release on July 7, 2017.
