This is in no way confirmation that Jackman will be appearing in the movie as it could just be a mistake. Take this with a MAJOR grain of salt. We didn’t want to report this as a “story” but rather an unconfirmed rumor that most likely isn’t true.

If Jackman does appear, it’s very unlikely that he will be playing Wolverine. It would most likely be a cameo of some sort for fan service. The Disney/Fox acquisition isn’t officially completed with getting approval from regulatory authorities. Therefore, the X-Men characters cannot be used by Disney-owned Marvel Studios. There’s an outside chance that the deal gets completed in time but highly unlikely they would make a rash decision to include a version of a character from another continuity they didn’t create.
