LOGAN: Hugh Jackman Details Sabretooth's Cut Cameo And Why He Never Donned The Classic Costume

Hugh Jackman talks about Sabretooth's cut cameo in Logan and reveals the things he wanted to do as Wolverine but just couldn't make work, including the character's classic comic book costume.

Collider recently had the opportunity to catch up with Hugh Jackman to talk all things Logan and dropped some very interesting details about what might have been in the movie. For starters, he weighs in on that rumoured Liev Schreiber cameo as Sabretooth from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a movie Logan referenced an awful lot. As cool as it sounds, it appears as if it just got lost in the shuffle. 

"There was a story point where they go to Vegas," Jackman reveals, "you know how they go to the Oklahoma casino? They go there and at this
point Sabretooth is running like a major casino and really, really wealthy, and really kind of runs a town, and sort of respectable in a way but is still himself. That idea was thrown around, I forgot about that." That would have been a lot of fun and while it wasn't necessarily the best use for the character, it would have made fans very happy. 

Jackman's tenure as Wolverine is officially at an end and when talk turned to his regrets, the actor specifically mentioned that not being able to don the comic book costume and a missed opportunity with a certain storyline from the comic book rank highest among those which play on his mind. 

"There were a couple of things I couldn’t work out how to do. Fans always say, ‘When are we gonna see you in the blue and yellow spandex? We’ve gotta see that shot!’ We tried a little bit in The Wolverine, it didn’t happen—on that plane at the end he opens up a box and there’s the suit, I think that ended up getting cut. So the suit was one thing but we just couldn’t work out how to do it, so if anyone can work that out you go for it. The other idea that I always loved was the idea in the comics that every year on Logan’s birthday, his brother comes and beats the crap out of him. I just thought that was such a cool very fun idea and very in keeping to those characters. His birthday present was just a beating and that’s the only time he sees him (laughs). I kept saying, ‘Jim can we put that in?’ and he goes ‘Eh this is not that movie.’ But anyway."
