Australian actor Hugh Jackman rose to prominence for his incredibly jacked build while portraying the superhero ‘Wolverine.’ Recently, Jackman shared two intense leg workouts he used to get back in superhero shape for the upcoming Deadpool 3 release.
Hugh Jackman got tapped to play the role of the burly comic book character in the X-Men (2000) film franchise. The role helped elevate his star power, especially in North America. Playing a mutant with superhuman abilities was no easy task and required Jackman to train and diet consistently.
Jackman continued to play the part of ‘Wolverine’ in the next installments of the series and secured spinoff projects in the process as well. In 2009, Jackman transformed his physique for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He acquired muscle tissue and exhibited a more athletic build compared to his earlier movie appearances. Despite being a foot taller than the character, Jackman received major praise for his lifelike portrayal of ‘Wolverine.’
Looking ahead, Jackman continued his acting journey and even dabbled in theatric work. He racked up several blockbusters, such as The Prestige (2006), Les Misérables (2012), and Prisoners (2013).
When he returned for 2013’s stand-alone film, The Wolverine, Jackman’s physique looked better than ever. He made significant improvements to his build and left the fans in awe of his ripped midsection. His last performance came in the 2017 film Logan. Later, fellow Marvel sensation Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool, convinced Jackman to reprise his role as Wolverine for the upcoming trilogy of his franchise, Deadpool 3.
Last month, Jackman claimed he did not use steroids at any point to play Wolverine. Instead, he chose to build muscle the old-school way and said he ate a lot of chicken.
