With so many Marvel projects appearing on the horizon, there has been no shortage of talk concerning potential crossover appearances for Wolvie, with Jackman himself fanning the flames concerning a spot in The Avengers.
Any movie with Robert Downey Jr, I want to be in,” Jackman told MTV. “I'm open to it (because) I love playing this guy. The great thing about Wolverine is he's still a fun character. He's a tortured soul but he's always got a quip. He's always got a line. He's like Dirty Harry and Mad Max. These aren't nice guys but they get the job done. He marches to the beat of his own drummer. That's why I love playing him.”
Since then however, Joss Whedon has made no move to include the character, and attention has instead turned to Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming X-movie, First Class. The rumour mill was quick to grind into action when Jackman was recently spotted in Georgia, where First Class had been shooting, with speculation rife that the Australian had been on set to film a cameo.
However, producer Bryan Singer has since moved to quash the rumours, tersely remarking that Jackman, “isn’t in the movie. He’s in the Wolverine movies.” Fairly comprehensive then: if you want to see Jackman get his claws out, The Wolverine will be the only film to provide it.
