Ever the optimist, Hugh Jackman is still hoping that he will one day be able to fight as Wolverine alongside Spider-Man or The Avengers (despite acknowledging just how unlikely such an occurrence would be). Well, in a recent interview with The Huffington Post, the actor has revealed that he and Kevin Feige tried to arrange a background cameo for Wolverine in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man back in 2002. However, it sounds as if a missing costume - presumably the one he wore in X-Men - ended in it not happening. How Fox would have felt about this is something else altogether!
"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."
