We all know that Hugh Jackman will reprise the role in the third Deadpool movie, the next big MCU movie. A role was highly appreciated by the fans, but it is requiring the actor a lot of effort from the actor to get it. Since his return was confirmed, after 50 years, he is crushing himself like never before…
The announcement of the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine has fans excited. In fact, it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing the part. However, getting the role was not very easy, and so heor explained the Australian The Graham Norton Show, where he talked about the changes he had to undergo to get the physique necessary for the role. During the interview, the actor shared that maintaining a physique not only requires training, but also largely depends on diet.
“I assumed it was all about pumping iron, but it’s a science, the whole food thing is a science.” The actor also talked about how difficult it is to maintain a diet and often tends to complain about it. The actor said: “I complain about it all day, I’m going crazy, right now I’m eating 5,000 calories a dayI’m loading myself with food and I’m complaining, my wife tells me to shut up, she’s going to kill me”.
Indeed, it takes a lot to get the physique that Jackman is, and we never thought he would go back to that. And it is that after appearing in the 2017 film Logan as the titular character of Wolverine, Jackman announced his withdrawal from his character. But Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds insisted on Jackman’s return as Wolverine for his movies and brought Jackman back in his original yellow suit. At first, good old Hugh was adamant about the end of his character; however later he realized that the Deadpool and Wolverine collaboration was going to be very interesting.
“I really thought I was done. I was at peace with it. I get asked every day, whether it’s in interviews, and then Ryan Reynolds calls me… ‘Can we do it again?’ And I was like, ‘No, I’m done.’ Someone said to me, I think it was Deb, she’s my wife, she said, ‘You know, after this, what do you really want to do?’ And I was driving a day later and I thought, ‘What do I want?’ And it was like that I thought about myself and Ryan, and Deadpool and Wolverine, who are classic comic book rivals, and there’s also a dynamic that I’ve never really gotten to do before as Wolverine.”
As you well know, we will find out on May 3, 2024.
Joaquín Gasca is an expert in competition, technology and motor sports. Some time ago he hung up his stud boots to focus on paddle tennis and running… old things, he complains. But he’s also up for whatever blitz he has to do with pushing his body to the limit, whether it’s behind the wheel of an Aston Martin or skateboarding to the office.
He is very much from Atlético de Madrid, so when footballers like Marcos Llorente or Álvaro Morata have starred on the cover of Men’s Health, he was there to write them. He just ran his first marathon for Runner’s World, and as he passes in this universe, he’s already looking for the next one to go under 3 hours. If you have to test any type of paddle tennis racket, vehicle or watch, it’s no problem. Even slippers. Whatever is needed in sports equipment.
Joaquín graduated in journalism from USP-CEU in 2013, but since 2009, when he joined the University newspaper, he began to work as a 360 “journalist” in digital and print. The next steps in his almost 15-year career were taken by doing culture and sports in Shanghai magazine, until he entered Hearst a week before the start of the pandemic in 2020. He is also a professor of social networks and new technologies at Universitas Senioribvs CEU and is part of the Hearst Innovation HUB to investigate new trends.
