Hugh Jackman talks of a Wolverine cameo that almost happened
A rather cool cameo for Wolverine very nearly took place, but in what super hero movie?
Hugh Jackman has been giving a few interviews of late, and in a new one with the Huffington Post, he's been chatting about what could have been quite a memorable appearance in another movie.
He's already got one excellent cameo as Wolverine under his belt, but it may not have been the first. "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".
He continued by mentioning what scuppered these plans, and it might not be what you'd imagine! "The problem was, we couldn't find the suit. The suit was stuck in something. 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".
Jackman revealed too that he still holds out hope such a cameo may happen one day.
It would have been interesting, certainl had it done so before, but the nature of business and the deals Marvel did in the past relinquishing control over some of their key characters is the big factor in preventing things like this from happening. Which is a great shame. Still, never say never...
