Hugh Jackman will not appear in X-Men: First Class

Wolverine

Wolverine’s been a constant a source of rumour mill half truths all year, thanks to continued debates over who’ll be helming his second solo film outing.

But one rumour we can officially quash is the one saying that Hugh Jackman will be cameoing in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming mutant prequel X-Men: First Class .

“He’s not in the movie. He’s in the Wolverine movies,” says producer Bryan Singer.

Easy come, easy go. It’s sad news for those hoping for the mullet-faced Aussie to put in a continuity-aiding vignette, but not exactly the end of the world.

X-Men: First Class opens in the UK on 2 June, 2011.
