I haven't seen the movie yet (very excited!) but even from the trailers and posters and stills, it is very apparent that this is undoubtedly Hugh Jackman's best physique ever - he himself has been saying this, his director has been saying this, and now even critics and reviews are saying this now that they have seen the film. Even his trainer thinks so and I found this fantastic interview with him where he discusses his regimen in detail. http://www.philstar.com/health-and-family/2013/07/23/999591/hugh-jackmans-wolverine-workout I think what takes him to the next level is definitely the vascularity that he is showing. That's more genetic I believe because he has been asked a few times about how he gets his veins to bulge out and he says that its natural and he got it from his mother. Lucky bastard. This is truly an insane effort from Jackman to reach such a physical level and all the praise that he is getting is well deserved. Respect.
