Hugh Jackman is taking his return as Wolverine in the upcoming Deadpool 3 extremely seriously.

In a recent conversation with HBO Max‘s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?, the Australian action star discussed his highly anticipated return to the MCU. He spoke about the physical demands of the role and how he intends to get in shape to play Wolverine, once again. He said, “I’ve learned you can’t rush it. I’ve learned that it takes time. So we have six months from when I finish [The Music Man] to when I started filming. And I’m not doing any other work. I’m going to be with my family and train. That’s going to be my job for six months.” He continued to add, “And I’m really fit right now. There’s one thing that about eight shows a week being on Broadway singing and dancing is I’m fit. So I’m healthy. I have a good place to start.” He also joked, “And apologies chickens. Run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you.”

Jackman is slated to star alongside Ryan Reynolds for the upcoming third sequel to Marvel’s titular antihero franchise. Jackman is reprising his rolwas James “Logan” Howlett, better known as Wolverine. He first played the character over two decades ago in Bryan Singer’s X-Men project.
