Daniel Radcliffe wants to star with Ben Affleck in the latest 'Batman' movie as the superhero's sidekick Robin

Daniel Radcliffe wants to play Batman's sidekick Robin.

When asked which movie franchise he would consider starring in, he told Buzzfeed: "Batman. If they reboot that again, I'll do that, too.

"It's happening isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin. I'm perfect."

A source said previously: "Daniel thinks he would be an excellent villain in the Bond films. He loves the franchise but admires the villains as much as Bond.

"He feels he could appear as a modern bad guy, an evil mastermind who wants to take down MI5."
