Chris Hemsworth and The Rock aren’t the only superhero actors buffing up their physiques lately. It looks like Supernatural star Jensen Ackles has now joined the party too. The 43-year-old actor posted a video on his Instagram, revealing how jacked he’s getting for his upcoming role as Soldier Boy in The Boys Season 3.
It’s not the first time the actor has given us a sneak peek of his role in the hit Amazon Prime series. The normally clean-shaven actor posted a quarantine photo wearing an unkempt beard. But maintaining his mountain man look is the easiest step towards becoming Soldier Boy. The workout, on the other hand, is not.
Soldier Boy, fans of The Boys might remember, is known in that show’s universe as the first Supe in show history. Will he turn out to be a deranged monster in some way? Probably! But we’re eager to see how it plays out either way—and clearly his actor is putting in the work to make sure audiences everywhere are convinced.
Wearing a sleeveless muscle shirt and sporting his scruffy facial hair, Ackles was crushing alternating bicep curls. And, let us tell you, he was definitely feeling the burn. “These superhero workouts are much different,” he said in the video. “It was so much easier when all I had to do was wear flannel.”
Maybe Ackles can get some help from fellow CW superhero alums, Grant Gustin (The Flash) or Stephen Amell (Arrow). He tagged the two, saying “I’m beginning to understand the struggle. Or maybe I’m just too old for this crap.” No one ever said being a Supe was easy, Dean.
