Hugh Jackman has six months to get into Wolverine shape

For about a week more, Hugh Jackman will play the title role in The music man on Broadway. Then he has to slip back into the adamantium claws wolverine for the tenth time playing Logan opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 3. But it is a process that takes a lot of time.

That’s because Jackman needs to get in shape to play the bloated superhero. And with Wolverine, it’s not about the cool costume – it’s about the huge abs. Jackman told Chris Wallace on his HBO talk show that when The music man ends, he begins training Wolverine, a process that will take him about half a year.

“We’ve got six months,” he explained, “from when I’m done [The Music Man] until I start filming. And I don’t do other work. I have to be with my family and train. It will be my job for six months.”

He also revealed that he does not take steroids when playing the character, saying:

I love my job and I love Wolverine. I have to be careful what I say here, but I had been told anecdotally what the side effects are from it. And I thought, ‘I don’t love it that much.’ …So no, I just did it the old fashioned way. And I’m telling you, I’ve eaten more chickens. I am so sorry to all the vegans and vegetarians and to the chickens of the world. I literally have … the karma is not good for me. If the god has anything to do with chickens, I’m in trouble.

Jackman didn’t have much to add about Deadpool 3s plot or premise, though he said he was looking forward to the relationship between Logan and Deadpool, something he hasn’t really had in previous X-Men films. He also said to the poultry population of the world, “Sorry, chickens. race.”

Deadpool 3 is slated to open in theaters on November 8, 2024.
