Hugh Jackman Will Take 6 Months to Get in Wolverine Shape

In case anyone wondered why we won’t see Deadpool 3 until November of 2024, costar Hugh Jackman just revealed a big one. It’s going to take him half a year just to get in Wolverine shape before any cameras start rolling. In an interview with Chris Wallace on HBO Max (via People), he discussed the timeline a bit.

Jackman is 54 years old, but he’s still in good shape, regularly dancing onstage for The Music Man.

“There’s one thing that about eight shows a week being on Broadway singing and dancing, is I’m fit,” noted Jackman. “So, I’m healthy. I have a good place to start. And apologies, chickens. Run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you.”

Still, a dancer’s physique isn’t necessarily an X-Man’s physique. And that’s going to require some time and discipline.

“We have six months from when I finish to when I started filming. And I’m not doing any other work,” added Jackman. “I’m going to be with my family and train. That’s going to be my job for six months.”

There’s no word about what Ryan Reynolds’ exercise routine will be, but expect him to throw some barbs Jackman’s way on social media, as he usually does.

Do you expect Hugh Jackman to become a huge, jacked man in Deadpool 3? Let us know in comments.
