Hugh Jackman Reveals 8,000-Calorie Diet for Deadpool 3 Role

Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine in the upcoming superhero movie, Deadpool 3.[0] 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.[1] 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.[2] This potential multiversal Deadpool could feature more than one Wolverine, just like the 2017 film Logan, where Jackman played a scientifically altered clone.[3]

Jackman revealed his colossal meal prep on Twitter, showing off the kinds of meals he's been eating each day.[4] 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.[5]

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.[6] By the beginning of March, it appears he has exceeded his goal of 6,000 calories.[7]

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.[8] 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.[2]

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.[9] With the promise of intense violence, humor, and multiple Wolverines, this film has the potential to be the best yet.[10]
