Hugh Jackman Says Wolverine Almost Made a Cameo in 'Spider-Man'

The Wolverine depicter says the crossover story didn't happen because 'the problem was, we couldn't find the suit. The suit was stuck in some thing.'

A Wolverine/Spider-Man crossover almost came to fruition in the first installment of Sam Raimi's trilogy, according to Hugh Jackman. The copyrights issues with Wolverine owned by Fox, not Marvel Studios, usually stood in the way for such idea to happen, but the actor claimed those barriers almost broke down in 2002.

"In the first 'Spider-Man' - [Marvel producer] Kevin Feige reminded me of this -- we really tried to get me to come on and do something, whether it was a gag or just to walk through the shot or something," he told the Huffington Post while promoting his new movie "Prisoners" at the Toronto International Film Festival.

A missing costume, or so Jackman said, was the only thing that prevented his "X-Men" character from appearing in Peter Parker's world. "The problem was, we couldn't find the suit. The suit was stuck in some thing. And so when they were in New York when I was there, we couldn't get it together," the Australian star said.

"So, you know, I actually asked some high level people about it. Because the optimist in me goes, 'Why not? Why can't we do it? You know, a split cast or whatever?' And someone reminded that the amount of money Fox paid compared to the amount of money Disney paid is very different [laughs]," he jokingly added.

"The Wolverine" actor went on, "So how you split that pie up? God knows. But in the comic books, what's great about it is they're just mashing together all the time -- and it's awesome. And people are like, 'Yeah, well, let's get this one with that!' And, you know, I still think, one day, there may be an ability to do it."
