Kumail Nanjiani Goes Shirtless As He Jacks Up For Marvel’s Eternals
Marvel’s Eternals is going to display to us a jacked-up Kumail Nanjiani. The upcoming MCU superhero venture has a star-studded lineup and Kumail is not going to be the one to fall short of fame. The studios are preparing itself for oncoming Phase 4 which seemingly includes storyline related to Black Widow as well. After its May 2020 release, the focus will be on Eternals, which Kevin Feige has said to be a “risk”.
Kumail Nanjiani Shares A Gym Shots
On Instagram, Kumail Nanjiani displayed two shiny pictures of himself posing, what seems to be, at the gym. The actor has mostly done comedy roles as a normal everyday character, such as in Silicon Valley and Stuber starring Dave Bautista.
Showcasing his new look he posted the following:

I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. 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. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I’ll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)
Kumail gives the credits to trainers and nutritionists who were hired by Marvel, the “biggest studio in the world”. He said that he found out a year ago that he will be starring in Marvel’s Eternals. Kumail Nanjiani decided then and there that he has to get all jacked up to display a proper acting performance. All the superheroes are jacked up and that is pretty much the norm in every Marvel superhero movie as well. Apart from Robert Downey Jr and Jeremy Renner, almost all the superheroes have a gym-chiseled body.
“I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
Kumail Nanjiani played us really well, well-chosen words right there. At the end of the post, embarrassed Kumail also mentions his wife, Emily Gordon, for putting up with his whining and workout talks. He promised her that he will become interesting once again. He even got an interesting offer to host a male show because of his body transformation.
The Marvel’s Eternals star will now join the list of actors in Marvel who went through body transformations. This includes Paul Rudd for her role as Ant-Man, Chris Pratt for Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Evans for Captain America, and now Kumail Nanjiani for Eternals.
