Radcliffe goes undercover as Spidey at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (AP) - That guy in the Spider-Man suit you posed with at Comic-Con? It might have actually been Harry Potter.

Daniel Radcliffe donned a Spidey mask to covertly mingle with fans on the showroom floor at the pop-culture convention.

"I did an American accent for the whole time," the British actor said in an interview Friday. "I even took a rucksack, so I look like I'm just coming to Comic-Con. I had a whole look. But it was great ... I took lots of pictures with people who did not know that it was me."

Radcliffe posed for plenty of photos with other costumed guests, and even inserted his Spidey-masked face into a poster for "Sharknado 2."

"(It) actually looked weirdly good," he said. "It looked like Spider-Man is in 'Sharknado 2.' "

The 25-year-old star made his first trip to Comic-Con to discuss his new film, "Horns," in which his character sprouts horns on his head that are invisible to others but cause them to confess to him their darkest truths.

A self-avowed superhero and comic-book fan, Radcliffe said he's long wanted to come to Comic-Con. Members of the "Harry Potter" cast have appeared in previous years, but the franchise star wasn't able to make it until now. Besides promoting his new film, Radcliffe also got to indulge his inner geek while dressed as Spider-Man.

"I always loved that character. I love the comics, actually, as well," he said. "I almost got a picture with two girls dressed as Mary Jane and Gwen Stacy, but the moment had passed."

Cool. Except that when you're in America, it's not an "accent" and you'd be hardpressed to find one carrying a "rucksack." Dead give aways.

Comic Con is a neat thing, I like that. Hope they don't get carried away with getting dollars from the fans and ruin it.
