Hugh Jackman Reveals 8,000-Calorie Diet for Deadpool 3 Role
Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine in the upcoming superhero movie, Deadpool 3. Jackman, who played the clawed mutant in nine ‘X-Men’ movies since 2000, has recently revealed his intense meal plan and intense workout regime to prepare for his return in the role. Jackman will be consuming 8,000 calories a day to bulk up for the role.
In addition to his diet and exercise routine, Jackman has dropped a hint to a small French news outlet that he might be playing more than one version of Wolverine. This potential multiversal Deadpool could feature more than one Wolverine, just like the 2017 film Logan, where Jackman played a scientifically altered clone.
Jackman revealed his colossal meal prep on Twitter, showing off the kinds of meals he's been eating each day. He says he's consuming about 8,000 calories per day, and his trainer has him wearing a heart rate monitor during workout sessions to track his progress.
Jackman's 8,000-calorie diet is higher than Jonathan Majors’ 6,100-calorie diet for his role in Creed III and Magazine Dreams. Jackman previously told Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” that he was building up to eating 6,000 calories a day. By the beginning of March, it appears he has exceeded his goal of 6,000 calories.
Jackman will be joined in Deadpool 3 by fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, and the two are currently in the middle of a social media battle for who is in better physical shape. Emma Corrin, best known for her role in the TV series ‘The Crown’, is also set to play a villain in the film, though it has not yet been confirmed who she will be portraying.
Deadpool 3 is set to arrive in theaters on November 8, 2024, and fans are eagerly awaiting what will be the biggest Deadpool movie yet. With the promise of intense violence, humor, and multiple Wolverines, this film has the potential to be the best yet.
