What did Hugh Jackman say about his Deadpool 3 training?
Hugh Jackman was spotted last in his role of Logan in 2017’s Logan. The actor stated that he would never reprise his role ever again after his character took his last breath in the movie. But his return in the first R Rated MCU movie has led the actor to once again get back to his rigorous procedure to get his Wolverine physique.
As The Prestige actor said, he will completely focus on his Deadpool 3 workout. Appearing in Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? Jackman revealed that he is already fit thanks to his broadway singing and dancing routines. It will help him start the workout process more smoothly.
“I’ve learned you can’t rush it. I’ve learned that it takes time. So we have six months from when I finish 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. 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.”

But Hugh Jackman’s last sentence can lead to some controversy as he openly said that his workout routine will also have him consuming chickens. He joked that the chickens should run now.
“And apologies, chickens. Run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you.”
This comment made by him might be upsetting to some PETA as well as vegan fans. Moreover, PETA’s former track record with the X-Men: Origins superhero is also not very well.
PETA and Hugh Jackman don’t share a sweet bond
PETA or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has also asked the fans to boycott Jackman’s 2017 hit The Greatest Showman. The non-profit organization alleged that the movie didn’t show the true image of the entertainer P.T. Barnum who started the Barnum & Bailey Circus. According to them, the movie didn’t portray how he was cruel to the animals who were very commonly used at that time in circus shows.

So it can present a little concerning situation for the actor and the upcoming Shawn Levy directorial. But the hype of the movie is also very high and it will not be a surprise if Deadpool 3 turns out to be one of the craziest movies by Marvel as it promises a crazy time-traveling journey.

Deadpool 3 will hit theaters on November 8, 2024, while The Greatest Showman can be streamed on Disney+.
