Hugh Jackman (54) becomes Wolverine again. He posted pictures on Twitter showing his daily diet to get enough calories for his workout. In "Deadpool 3" the Australian embodies the muscular superhero again after a long break.
"Build mass," Jackman writes about the picture post. He thanks his personal chef, Mario, for helping him "stay healthy and eating right while I become...Wolverine. Again."
The pictures show several plastic bowls full of pre-portioned meals. There is rice, beans and lots of meat and fish. The bowls are accurately labeled, including the number of calories in each. So there is black bass with rice and herb sauce, 2,000 calories. There are also about two chicken burgers at 1,000 calories each.
All in all, Jackman averages 8,000 calories a day. He surpasses his plan, which he revealed in an interview on the "Late Show" with Stephen Colbert (58) in January. At that time there was still talk of a daily target of 6,000 calories. At the time of the interview, the star was still at 4,500 to 5,000 energy units.
But now Jackman is upping the dose, because the shooting of "Deadpool 3" is getting closer. From the end of May, the actor will be in front of the camera alongside Ryan Reynolds (46). The film, which marks Wolverine's entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is slated to hit theaters in late 2024.
In 2017, Hugh Jackman last played the fighter named after the predator of the same name, which appropriately means wolverine in German, in the superhero swan song "Logan".
