The secret to a mind-blowingly buff body? Join the MCU. The latest actor to get jacked for a superhero role is Kumail Nanjiani, who underwent serious conditioning for his upcoming role in Marvel’s The Eternals. Nanjiani took to Instagram this morning to post a self-described "thirsty shirtless":

There’s no way around it — Nanjiani is officially swole. Luckily, the process hasn’t robbed him of his humility. In fact, he’s very open about his journey of becoming an incredibly buff man. It didn’t come without a cost, but according to Nanjiani those costs were mostly absorbed by “the biggest studio in the world.” AKA Disney. But even though Disney supplied him with top grade nutritionists and personal trainers, the real heavy lifting (pun intended) fell on Nanjiani’s shoulders. It took him a whole year of strict dieting and working out to achieve his desired results, and only now is he able to show them off in all his shirtless glory.

Nanjiani will be portraying Kingo, a member of the immortal alien race known as the Eternals, who were created by the Celestials to protect the human race. He star alongside Angelina Jolie as Thena, Richard Madden as Ikaris, and Salma Hayek as Ajak. The Eternals is scheduled for release on November 6, 2020. Only time will tell if Nanjiani will keep his new bod for the premiere.
