Hugh Jackman has shared his excitement at starting filming on The Wolverine, tweeting that he's feeling "so pumped".
Shooting on the movie - the follow-up to X-Men Origins: Wolverine from 2009 - began yesterday in Sydney, Australia.
And 43-year-old Hugh told his Twitter followers: "We're on day 1 of shooting. Wolverine is back…feel so pumped about this one……never felt so ready!!!! will keep y'all posted!!!"
He also shared a picture of the high-protein chicken breast and asparagus meal he was eating as part of his efforts to get into shape for the movie.
He accompanied it with the comment: "And you know what that means.... the wolverine diet!! this was meal 2 at 9am this morning."
Although filming has begun, the key role of Viper is not thought to have been filled following Jessica Biel's departure from the project.
The film is scheduled for release on 26 July next year.
