In the latest buzz surrounding the eagerly anticipated 'Deadpool 3', Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds is not shying away from intense preparations. The 47-year-old actor, renowned for his portrayal of the witty and unconventional superhero Wade Wilson, gave fans a sneak peek into his dedication by posting a gym selfie during the wee hours of Wednesday morning.

The snapshot, shared on Reynolds' Instagram story, showcased the actor amidst heavy gym equipment, donning a casual yet focused look in a white vest top, black joggers, and a baseball cap. A distinct “3:AM” sticker rotated in the corner, accompanied by a playful GIF of his Deadpool character, further emphasizing his commitment to the role.

This glimpse into Reynolds' regimen comes just days after he was spotted filming with co-star Hugh Jackman. The dynamic duo was seen in Southern England, fully clad in their iconic superhero attires - Reynolds in Deadpool's signature red and Jackman, 55, in Wolverine's classic yellow and blue.

Images from the set highlighted their camaraderie, with one photo capturing Deadpool humorously piggybacking on Wolverine.

Jackman's Intense Prep

Jackman, returning to his famed Wolverine role, is equally immersed in his physical preparation.

In a recent post, the 'Greatest Showman' star shared a clip of himself lifting weights, humorously noting "No days off - except for tomorrow." His gym session was energetically backed by The Glitter Band's “Rock and Roll”, adding to the actor's spirited approach towards reprising his role.

'Deadpool 3', slated for release on July 26, 2024, has been a topic of anticipation since Reynolds and Jackman first teased Wolverine's involvement in September 2022. The excitement was palpable when Jackman shared with PEOPLE in October 2022, "I'll probably have more fun on this movie than any other I've ever done.

Being on set with Ryan every day, and those two characters interacting in every scene... I think it's fair to say they'll be relentlessly at each other's throats throughout”. As the countdown to the film's release continues, both Reynolds and Jackman's dedication to their roles promises an action-packed, humor-filled cinematic experience for fans worldwide.
