Hugh Jackman Shared a Look at How He Built His Biceps for Deadpool & Wolverine

HUGH JACKMAN IS about to make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after playing one of the most iconic X-Men characters on and off since the year 2000. He will co-star with Ryan Reynolds in the forthcoming third Deadpool movie, recently revealed to be titled Deadpool & Wolverine—and despite being 25 years older than he was when he first got the part of mutant Logan, he is committing to the superhero body once again.

“It’s been five years and I’d really never thought I’d come back and I’m really, really excited about it,” Jackman said back in 2022, when it was first announced that he would be reprising the role. “I’m going to have the time of my life… I can tell you that I started back at the gym and I’m eating a lot.”

Jackman added that he’ll be playing a slightly different take on Wolverine than we’ve seen in previous movies, saying: “He’s definitely angrier, sort of grumpy, and he’s gonna take a lot of free shots at Ryan Reynolds. Physically, that is.”

The Australian actor has shared plenty of insights into his training for the movie in the year and a half since, using the hashtag #BecomingWolverineAgain to document his progress—and repeatedly trolling his co-star Ryan Reynolds, with whom he has been in an “arms race” to see who can get in the best shape.


In his most recent Instagram post, a throwback to one of his Wolverine workouts from last summer, Jackman shouts out his trainer Beth Lewis for always being by his side throughout the physically grueling experience. In the clip, Jackman can be seen building his biceps with a set of barbell curls, cheered on by Lewis and her “trusted assistant,” French bulldog Andy, who makes a brief appearance at the end of the video.

Deadpool & Wolverine will be released on July 26.
