Wolverine Spider-Man cameo revealed

Hugh Jackman has revealed Wolverine almost made an appearance in Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man movie.

The X-Men star told the Huffington Post how he and producer Kevin Feige had planned for him to make a cameo pop-up as the mutant alongside Tobey Maguire, but they couldn't find his Wolverine costume in time.

Hugh explained: "In the first Spider-Man 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."

The Prisoners star has said previously how much he would love to appear opposite Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, and despite the characters both being from Marvel comics, as the films are made by different studios, there are rights issues.

Hugh added: "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. 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."
