You’ve probably all heard the news by now, Hugh Jackman is coming back as Wolverine for Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3, with filming set to begin this summer. The third Deadpool movie will be the first in the series to be released post-Disney acquiring the rights to 21st Century Fox, with the third instalment confirmed to be fully set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or at least somewhere around the MCU as the multiverse saga continues.
Jackman will finally be starring alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson, also known as Deadpool, for the second time with X-Men Origins: Wolverine being their last outing together as the two characters. However, fans have never truly been able to see Jackman and Reynolds portray their roles to their full potential as Reynolds’ Deadpool sadly got no lines during the finale of the X-Men spinoff. Which Reynolds even made fun of during the ending sequence for Deadpool 2, where Deadpool travels back in time to change history and stop the X-Men Origins: Wolverine version of Deadpool from existing.
Hugh Jackman’s 2023 Wolverine Diet
In a recent interview on the UK television show This Morning, Jackman was asked about his new diet plan for Wolverine, and how many calories per day have to be consumed to keep up with the workout regime, to which Jackman responded with “5 and a 1/2 thousand [calories]” a day.
Jackman was also asked about his water intake, as Jackman has been vocal in the past about how strict the rules are for liquids during an intense diet plan, to which Jackman responded with “I have to have a certain amount of water, it’s got, actually, even more scientific. Have you heard the term macros? So, it’s a breakdown of fat, protein, and carbohydrate”.
The Wolverine actor continued to add “I hate using the word diet, however, just eating healthily, so when you’re doing something like this [Wolverine workout], I’m working with this guy, Mario, he’s amazing, he’s like a cross-fit champion himself and a chef, and so he’s like ‘Right, you need this, this, and this’ and so, I don’t question anything as the food arrives and it’s been mathematically counted down, and it’s 600 grams of carbohydrate, it’s 270 grams of protein, which if you don’t know what that means, it just means it’s a lot, it’s gross, and a certain amount of fat”.
It has been stated by the Wolverine actor himself, Hugh Jackman, that filming for Deadpool 3 is set to begin sometime this summer, and that Jackman may be in full Wolverine shape by then. Jackman has also been clear during these past couple of months that he is aiming to be bigger than ever before, preparing Marvel fans for what’s coming.
Deadpool 3 is currently set to release in theatres on November 8, 2023.
