Hugh Jackman is pumped to play Wolverine… literally. True, the X-Men movie alum originally thought he had portrayed the character for the last time in director James Mangold’s 2017 film Logan. But friends Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy ultimately lured Jackman back to play the Adamantium-clawed mutant in Deadpool 3. And Jackman is a man who can’t take a day off when keeping himself at peak level to inhabit his iconic role once again. Jackman posted a video of himself working out on social media, suggesting that he never misses a day of training,,,well, almost. Check out his latest video below:

Jackman has portrayed Wolverine in a total of nine films. And at the conclusion of Deadpool 2, Jackman does appear in that awesome flashback to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, while Wade Wilson (Reynolds) is time traveling. In that footage, Wade and Logan (Jackman) prepare to face off, but then Future Deadpool arrives and mercilessly kills the inferior version of himself in the past.
