It’s long been a dream for fans that Marvel Studios films should at least attempt a cross over with Sony’s Spider-Man and Fox’s X-Men films. Even Hugh Jackman himself has spoken about wanting to appear on screen as Wolverine with Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. The logistics of the studios letting this happen is a bit of a nightmare, but it did almost happen once apparently.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Jackman mentioned that he almost had a cameo in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, but an uncommon issue prevented it.
“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.”
