Earlier this summer, The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman revealed just how great he thought it would be if the X-Men, Spider-Man and The Avengers could all team up for a nigh-impossible movie, but what he didn’t say was that he almost did appear as Wolverine alongside Spidey in the first Spider-Man film back in 2002.
The big roadblock that kept him from appearing wasn’t even a legal one or a studio tug-of-war. It was costuming.
In the first Spider-Man — [Marvel Studios head] 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.
