Avengers Infinity War and the “secret” behind superhero physiques.
So this past weekend I finally got a chance to go out and see Avengers Infinite War. Don’t worry I won’t spoil it, but I do recommend you watch all of the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe before checking it out.
Now having watched it gave me a chance to discuss it with some of my clients and of the topics to come up was the topic of casting. I think everyone was cast very well…with the exception of Black Widow and that’s mainly because she’s supposed to be a Russian agent, but doesn’t have a Russian accent.
In this discussion, came up the topic of the physiques behind the characters, notably Thor and Captain America. When they were cast, they weren’t well-known actors. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) had Star Trek to his credit, even though his part was short, and Chris Evans (Captain America) had Fantastic 4, which wasn’t very successful.
Basically, they were a blank slate. They were a fresh start that could make or break the actor’s career. The big names in their origin movies were supporting cast members. In Thor, it was Natalie Portman. In Captain America, it was Tommy Lee Jones and Hugo Weaving.
And following the origin stories were sequels and cameos that I’m sure were written into the contracts. For Captain America, there were 3 movies as the leading role, plus 3 appearances in Avengers. For Thor, there were 3 movies as the leading role, plus 3 appearances in Avengers, and a cameo in Dr. Strange.
And there are more movies to come.
But the original’s success was hinged on the actor’s physiques, which brings me to the main point of this article.
A multimillion-dollar movie career is one heck of a motivating force to get in shape. Add to that the guidance and support system of having a personal trainer, plus nutritionist etc. and that is where their success comes from, though I can’t deny that there is a high likeliness of PEDS as well as there is always risk of this whenever money is on the line.
When people say to me “The only time I have is in the morning, but I just can’t get up.” I know it’s not completely true. They just don’t have the same mindset. If they were offered a million dollars to wake up at 5:30am I guarantee they won’t hit the snooze.
Now, I know you likely won’t be offered a multimillion-dollar picture deal but that doesn’t mean that a fit, powerful, capable superhero physique isn’t worth pursuing. Life is simply better when you are all around strong, lean and healthy.
And maybe you won’t reach the levels that they do…naturally. But with the right guidance and support system in place, you’ll surprise yourself with what you can accomplish. If you are unsure of what to do, that’s what I’m here to teach.
