** Dominic Monaghan In a Q & A with Creator/KevinSmith, Creator/EdgarWright revealed he was offered the role of Chris Bradley/Bolt by the producers. He declined, citing he wasn't a good enough actor. Later, Creator/HughJackman called him, along with other producers from the film, with the intention he had said "yes" to the role. Later, he e-mailed Jackman to politely tell him no, without being disrespectful.

** Deadpool didn't appear either. The original final battle was going to be against a pack of feral, crazed Sabretooth clones. Presumably, this would've explained why Sabretooth doesn't speak and acts like a savage beast in the original ''Film/{{X Men|1}}'' movie, with the implication that the Sabretooth working for Magneto was actually just [[ActuallyADoombot one of the surviving clones]].

** The cameos from Gambit, Cyclops and Emma Frost didn't happen in previous drafts, and the guy Logan went to see in New Orleans was actually Barbarus, an obscure Savage Land character from the comics.
