How cool would this have been?

Actor Hugh Jackman tells the Huffington Post that he was on the set of Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man for a cameo role as Wolverine.

“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,” Jackman tells the paper. “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.”

The actor says he’s still open to a crossover appearance, possibly in a future Spidey installment with actor Andrew Garfield.

And speaking of X-Men thespians, actress Ellen Page says that she’d love to see her character Kitty Pryde her own spin-off film.

This comes on the heels of Avengers director Joss Whedon saying that Pryde deserved her own solo effort.

Speaking to VulturePage says, “I’m super grateful to be the actress who’s gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them. I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again. I really would.”
