A Spider-Man X-Men Movie Crossover Was Ruined by Wolverine’s Costume

The timing of Jackman’s anecdote is fascinating. Kevin Feige’s involvement in it suggests that Jackman was offered a cameo in a film like “Captain America: Civil War,” in which Tom Holland’s Spider-Man simply appears. But in looking at the timeline, it’s more likely that the first of the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” is the right film, or even Tobey Maguire’s final Spider-outing in 2007 — and both of those movies would have involved licensing discussions between Sony and Disney. But since Tom Holland didn’t anchor his very first “Spider-Man”-centric Marvel Cinematic Universe solo film until 2017, it’s quite possible that Jackman meant a Marvel film in which Spider-Man appears, and the character did not surface in the MCU until that Captain America sequel.

In any event, Jackman was clearly never the same after playing Wolverine and he enjoys playing the character he intended to retire with “Logan” in 2017. While Jackman acknowledges that wrangling so many studios can be quite an undertaking, he told The Huffington Post that he had hope all the way back in 2013 that his character would get to interact with other MCU properties. “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.” His dream will become reality — even though Marvel Studios allegedly tried to kill it initially – when “Deadpool and the Wolverine” hits theaters on July 26.
