Hugh Jackman revealed In an interview with The Huffington Post, that wolverine nearly had a cameo in Sam Raimi’s first installment of Spider-Man.
Wolverine is owned by Fox and not Marvel Studios which unfortunately stopped this epic onscreen event from happening. Jackman did however claim that it was nearly a realization in 2002.
It seems a missing costume was the only thing that prevented his “X-Men” character from appearing in Spidey’s film, Jackman says:
“In the first “Spider-Man” — 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. 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. 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]. 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.”
The announcement that Batman and Superman will feature in the “Man of Steel” sequel started an internet frenzy. Hugh Jackman’s wolverine is one of the most favored comic book characters among fans, having an opportunity to see him feature in a crossover film with Spider-Man would be awesome. “The Wolverine” grossed over $361,8 worldwide, which is reason enough to have Jackman suit up for a cameo.
