Hugh Jackman is Wolverine in X3
Back when the production of X-Men 3 went to shit thanks to the loss of Bryan Singer to Superman Returns, we thought the entire X-Men cast was ready to commit treason with 20th Century Fox and follow their leader to Warner Bros.
Initial rumors claimed that James Marsden had jumped ship and decided to follow Bryan Singer to Superman. Though we know Marsden does have a big role in Superman Returns, he still holds his role as Cyclops in X-Men 3: The Last Stand (even if it is rumored that he gets killed at the beginning of the movie).
Things got even more, well, 'delicate' once Hugh Jackman was spotted on set of Superman Returns months back. Could the X-Men franchise be losing influence with its leading character? Well, fortunately, that is far from the case. Though Jackman did appear on set of Superman to visit Singer, he did not take on any major role for the film.
Jackman and Singer did however figure a cameo was in order.
Superman Returns Cameos Hugh Jackman
According to Variety, Hugh Jackman will have a cameo role in Superman Returns as the younger version of Superman's father while in flashback mode
Hugh Jackman's appearance in Superman Returns adds yet another film to his massive lineup for 2006 and 2007; giving ShoWest another reason to be happy with their selection of Jackman as Male Star of the Year.
Superman Returns will fly into theatres on June 30, 2006.
