In a blooper, there’s a fighting scene at the Statue of Liberty where James Marsden portrays Cyclops, Famke Janssen as Jean Grey, and Halle Berry in the role of Storm are all advancing to join the battle.

Spider-Man then quickly apologizes for being in the wrong movie and runs away, leaving everyone on the set in splits. Years later, this hilarious tidbit is what sparked people’s desire to see these two entities together on screen. Considering how much fun a 23-second clip was, fans pondered what an entire movie featuring both would bring.

Why Was Spider-Man in the 2000s X-Men Blooper Reel?

Although the blooper reel was hilarious, many questioned why Spider-Man was on the set at all. Turns out it was nothing but a prank, as there were no intentions of bringing the two together on screen since they didn’t share a universe back then. Now that the X-Men franchise is coming to the MCU, the chances of this happening in reality are higher than ever. Many suspect it will happen in the 2027 film, Avengers: Secret Wars. But only time will tell if this will all come true or not, nothing is confirmed as of yet.

Within the comments of the X post, numerous individuals engaged in debates and attempted to unmask the Spider-Man actor in the blooper reel. Among these discussions, many contended that the voice closely resembled Andrew Garfield’s. However, it was neither Tobey Maguire nor Andrew Garfield in the scene. Surprisingly, it was the stuntman Scott Leva who donned the Spider-Man suit in the blooper reel! He is an Academy Award-winning stuntman and has been credited in the X-Men film as the Waterboy #2.
