One of the most pleasant surprises from this past summer was Hugh Jackman's extremely short, but very memorable cameo as Wolverine in Matthew Vaughn's 'X-Men: First Class.' For those who haven't seen the film (out on DVD now), Jackman's Wolverine is approached by a young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (the future Magneto, played by Michael Fassbender) about possibly joining an early incarnation of the X-Men, and let's just say he isn't too enthusiastic about the idea. Moviefone spoke to Jackman over the weekend about his upcoming role in 'Real Steel,' and he shared with us the full story about that very secretive 'First Class' cameo... and why it almost never happened.
