BossLogic Imagines Daniel Radcliffe as Wolverine
As you may notice, BossLogic took Radcliffe and gave him an absolute gruff makeover. It sees him donning a white tank top and Radcliffe is seen turned to the side with some facial hair and sideburns. The art also shows him having some scars on his face and his cocked eyebrow makes him look very fierce.

BossLogic even paid homage to Harry Potter in the image. One of the scars is in the shape of a lightning bolt. For those curious about the history behind this piece, it has to do with recent reports regarding Wolverine in the MCU. As Disney’s deal with MCU comes to an end, it’s not far that X-Men will get introduced to the MCU. This will see X-Men heroes to get re-cast.

Hugh Jackman eager to see Wolverine in MCU:
While most Jackman fans will have a tough time seeing Wolverine recast, Hugh has been open to see Logan tackle the MCU. “It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that [Wolverine joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe] would be so great,” Jackman stressed before in a previous in a previous interview.
“Like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, ‘Oh well, that’s not gonna happen.’ and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline — it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously — I was like, “Hang on!” But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there.”
