Though Daniel Radcliffe has never actually been rumored to be up for the role of Wolverine in Marvel Studios' planned X-Men reboot (the notion seems to have stemmed from a fan-cast that took on a life of its own), a lot of fans do appear to be on board with the idea, and the Harry Potter actor is still being asked about the possibility of suiting-up as Logan in interviews.
While speaking to GQ Magazine, Radcliffe made it very clear that there's never been any truth to the reports - although he does admit that his responses to those initial Wolvie questions may have fuelled the fire to some extent.
"It's purely a press tour rumor; I say something, and then occasionally I get bored of answering that way so I say something different, and that sets it off again. I should just never open my mouth," Radcliffe observed. "I just don't ever want to get locked into something that I am not sure I will be able to love the same amount the whole time."
So, even if the opportunity were to present itself, it really doesn't sound like Radcliffe has much interest in taking over from Hugh Jackman as the fan-favorite mutant.
This speculation could all be moot, anyway, because Jackman hasn't actually hung up the claws just yet! Despite "retiring" as the lethal X-Man after James Mangold's Logan, the actor is set to reprise the role for Deadpool 3, which could well lead to him staying on as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Wolverine in future movies.
