Harry Potter lead actor Dan Radcliffe has always been one to enter new areas of the entertainment business (think Equus and How to Succeed). Now he seems interested in trying on tights to become a superhero – one with a symbolic lightning bolt like Harry’s.

In brief comments made while promoting the Woman in Black DVD, Radcliffe said he’d be most interested in becoming The Flash:

“There’s not many superheroes left who haven’t been done but I don’t think anyone’s done The Flash yet,” says Daniel.

“That’s one I’d probably have a go at but I don’t have any immediate plans. There are lots of offers around, but I want to do something that I’m really passionate about.”

It’s not clear whether Radcliffe meant he had lots of superhero offers or film offers in general, but we’d love to see him as a hero. Wouldn’t you?

Which superhero do you think Radcliffe would be best at?
