Hugh Jackman provided a behind-the-scenes glimpse during his Deadpool 3 training, and it looked he was battling to keep his calm.
On Tuesday, the 54-year-old Wolverine actor provided an update with his Instagram followers and recorded himself working out at the gym.
With the caption ‘Hurts so good,’ the celebrity shared two photos and a video of herself working out with weights.
Hugh groaned and flushed as he prepared to lie back on the bench and take up more dumbbells.
For his trip to the gym, he had a bushy grey beard and wore a black t-shirt with matching shorts and sneakers.
Fans were quick to express their admiration for the A-lister in the comments area, as well as their enthusiasm for Hugh’s return to the big screen.
One penned, ‘The wolverine is back’, while another said, ‘You got this Hugh Xxx’.
‘Mate, you gettin’ those wolverine gainz back in [sic],’ a separate account posted underneath the post shared to the star’s personal feed.
The Australian actor will reprise his role as Wolverine in the next sequel, which will feature Ryan Reynolds, after his previous appearance in the character in 2017’s Logan.
Hugh’s #gymspo post came after he announced he was separating from his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 67, after 27 years of marriage.
Earlier last month, in a statement to US publication People, the couple said: ‘We have been blessed to share almost three decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage.
‘Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.
‘Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love and kindness.
‘We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives.’
The statement, signed ‘Deb and Hugh Jackman’, ended: ‘This is the sole statement either of us will make.’
The couple met on the set of the Australian television show Correlli in 1995 and were married for over three decades, having married on April 11, 1996.
