Hugh JackmanHugh Jackman is bulking up again for Wolverine 2.

The Aussie actor admits he has a little work in the gym to do before he is in superhero shape ready for a sequel to his successful X-Men spin off.

“We’re starting work on it now,” dished Hugh. “That’s not to say we are actually shooting now — and a good job too. I have a little work to do to get back in shape because I’ve kind of let myself go a bit from those Wolverine workouts.

“I’ve been eating all the wrong things — like you do.”

And Hugh already knows where he’s off to once he is ready for action. “Japan is where we’re heading,” he says. “It’s going to be a very exciting part of the saga.”

Jackman recently admitted he was worried about taking on the role of Wolverine for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, as X Men followers are some of the hardest in the world to impress.

“For 50 years Wolverine has been around and so every person that grows up with that has an image of who he is,” he said. “So in a way, of all the things I have done — real characters and fictitious ones — the most challenging has been Wolverine.

“Because the fans of X Men and of Wolverine tell you exactly what they think. They don’t pull any punches.”
