What better way to hype up a heist film based on magic, than by casting the most famous wizard of all, Daniel Radcliffe. Now You See Me became a box-office surprise hit last year and a sequel was planned almost instantly. It starred a group of illusionists and magicians whose grandiose shows eventually lead to crime in a ‘rob from the rich’ kind of fashion. Michael Caine, the cruel insurance man from the first film, is set to reprise his role (probably looking for revenge), and has revealed that Daniel Radcliffe will play his son. Speaking to HeyUGuys, Caine had this to say:
There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.

When anyone is cast on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it immediately raises the question of whether or not that character could then make the jump from the small screen to the silver screen and join the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One such question arose this past summer when Friday Night Lights and G.I. Joe: Retaliation actress Adrianne Palicki joined Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Bobbi Morse a.k.a. Mockingbird, a member of the Avengers in the comics and the eventual wife of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
And while it’s completely possible that Mockingbird could appear on the big screen someday, it was previously unclear if that was a viable option. According to Palicki herself, however, it’s not only possible, but it’s already been discussed.
When promoting her upcoming film John Wick, Palicki spoke with IGN and said the following about playing Bobbi Morse, »

The former has been set for June 10th, 2016. It’s a follow-up to last year’s surprise smash hit Now You See Me, which opened to an unexpectedly mighty $29.4 million domestic debut and went on to gross a stellar $351.7 million worldwide.
The sequel is expected to continue the story of The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), skilled magicians who perform heists, now that the enigmatic Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) has inducted them into a secret society of magicians known as the Eye.
