Hugh Jackman reveals he nearly had a cameo in Sam Raimis Spider-Man

Hugh Jackman might be leading the field in appearances in Marvel movies, but the star has revealed how he narrowly missed out on adding the original Spider-Man to his impressive CV.

According to Jackman, he was set to make a cameo appearance as Wolverine in Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man film, only for a wardrobe issue to throw a spanner in the works.

“In the first Spider-Man - Kevin Feige reminded me of this - we really tried to get me to come on and do something,” says Jackman, “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 something. And so when they were in New York when I was there, we couldn't get it together.”

We can only imagine the nerdgasms that were narrowly averted. Now if only Sony and Fox could come to some sort of agreement…
