It would be amazing to see the Marvel characters owned by other studios start appearing with each other on the big screen. It seems like if it ever happens, it's not going to be for a very very long time. But according to Hugh Jackman, it almost did happen once! In an interview with The Huffington Post he explains that Wolverine almost showed up in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, and it didn't work out for a ridiculous reason. Here's the explanation from Jackman:
"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."
I wonder what suit they wanted him to wear in the film? It weird to me that was the reason we never saw Wolverine in the film.
Do you think that Marvel and the other studios will ever combine characters? If so, who would you like to see meet up first? For me, it would be Hulk and Wolverine.
