On Wednesday, we showed just how insanely hard an actor playing the main character in a comic book-based movie trains to get shredded for the role when we shared some of Tom Hardy’s brutal workout regimen for his upcoming role as Venom.
However, he isn’t the only actor playing a legendary comic book character that has gotten himself into ridiculous shape. All the actors playing the superheroes in the upcoming Justice League movie are also shredded AF thanks to their workout plans.
A couple of months ago we learned just how hard the training that Henry Cavill has undergone to play Superman is. You can’t be someone nicknamed “The Man of Steel” and be soft, after all.
Then there’s Jason Momoa, AKA Aquaman. This guy was already training like a mother-effer two years ago thanks in part to his role as Khal Drago on Game of Thrones.
Here’s just a sampling…
Yeah, that’s a little bit hardcore.
This past Monday, Momoa, Ben Affleck and Ray Miller sat down with E! News and the subject of their training came up and it sounds pretty crazy.
“You’re playing the character and you gotta look like a hero,” said Affleck . “It’s gotta be believable.”
Momoa revealed that they had what he called “an amazing gym” on set, while Fisher explained some of what each actor was trying to accomplish.
“Ezra’s working on agility and mobility, Jason is leaning and shredding, I’m trying to get big like a college athlete,” related Ray Fisher. “It’s worth saying that most of the muscles in that gym belong to the Themyscirans, the Amazons in there.”
Men’s Health reports that at least a couple of the superheroes are as buff as they are thanks to trainer Mark Twight.
For each client, Twight said it all comes down to teaching them about movement and proper techniques—not just sculpting their end appearance as quickly as possible. His goal is “to create a culture of physicality on these productions that will follow on from film to film,” he explained to Vanity Fair.
From the looks of some of the photos that Twight has shared on Instagram of Momoa and Fisher I’d say that everything he’s having them do is most definitely working.
Of course, as we know, Momoa also adheres to a very strict diet…
