Chris Evans turned into an absolute beast while playing the role of Steve Rogers aka Captain America during his time as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Chris Pratt, who was known for being a bit chubby, shredded those pounds for his role as Peter Quill aka Star Lord.
And what can we say about the mighty Thor, Chris Hemsworth, who somehow managed to improve his aesthetic with each one Thor movie, I mean, did you check him out in the Thor: Love and Thunder trailers?!
These actors continue to impress and amaze us with their impressive physiques, and no one in the world could question the kind of dedication and effort it takes to look like someone coveted from clay. Many of her fans are even inspired by her transformation and begin their own journey to look like the Norse god.
However, recently a Marvel actor revealed the honest and ugly truth of the looks such on-screen superheroes demand, and it’s definitely not rainbows and sunshine.

One of Marvel’s newest stars, Will Poulter, has remarked that achieving superhuman physical transformation without having a studio pay for food and exercise is “unhealthy” and “unrealistic” without having a studio pay for food and exercise .
“It’s difficult to talk about because everything at Marvel is secret squirrel… But the most important thing is that your mental and physical health must come first and aesthetic goals must come second. Otherwise you end up promoting something that is unhealthy and unrealistic unless you have the financial backing of a gym to pay for your meals and workouts. I’m in a very privileged position in that regard and I wouldn’t recommend anyone to do what I did to prepare for the job.” Poulter to The Independent in an interview.
The job Poulter is alluding to is his role as Adam Warlock, a genetically engineered superman, next year Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Poulter later detailed what he needed to do to prepare for the position.
Poulter said it was a lot of gym training and a very, very specific diet. There are times when you have too much to eat and other times when you don’t have enough to eat. He’s been on a number of different diets over the past few months and is now on a maintenance phase, which the actor says is quite nice. He doesn’t eat large amounts of food, but he doesn’t cut either. Poulter confessed he went through phases where he would look at food and feel like he couldn’t take it, and then the next minute he was ready to “eat furniture” because he was so hungry.
Poulter has skipped dinners with friends and abstained from alcohol in recent months. He hasn’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve and looks forward to being able to do so again.
“The whole social side of your life needs to take a back seat,” he said. “I have a routine that is so rigid that it hasn’t been possible for me to go out to dinner with friends. I look forward to being fit again.”
