Kumail Nanjiani is joining the Marvel brigade and as is the case for actors jumping into the world of superheroes, the man's been busy getting jacked for the role.

"I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time," he wrote.

The Stuber star admitted that the intense training made him "understand true physical pain for months and months". That said, it seems like the struggle was worth it!

The Eternals is a 1976 comic by Jack Kirby about near-immortal beings that were created to defend the Earth; the film adaptation starring Nanjiani, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden and Kit Harington among others is slated to release on November 6, 2020.
