Taron Egerton has been lifting, bro. The 31-year-old actor just shared a progress pic from his latest workout, wearing a shirt that shows off just how much muscle he’s been building in his shoulders and biceps.
But he’d like to at least keep up the pretense that he wasn’t flexing and posing. “Here’s a photo of me in the gym that was completely unplanned and totally unexpected,” he wrote in the caption, adding the hashtags “candid” and “reportage.”
The photo prompted a number of impressed—and predictably thirsty—comments. “Body, ody, ody, ody,” wrote Queer Eye‘s Tan France. “Beast mode pal,” said actor Craig McGinlay. Actor and fellow Welshman, Tom Cullen, told Egerton: “You’re the size of Ceredigion” (a region in Wales), while singer Brandi Carlile sent a bunch of fire emojis, and David Furnish, the husband of Elton John (whom Egerton famously portrayed in the musical biopic Rocketman), simply commented: “Woof!”
Egerton didn’t specify whether he was workout out for a role or not, although he has form in this area, having got all kinds of shredded to play Eggsy in the Kingsman movies. And now that he’s showing off these new gains, those rumors that he is going to be the MCU’s new incarnation of Wolverine are bound to start circulating again.

This also isn’t the first time that Egerton has showed off the big guns on Instagram; earlier this year he posted a photo of himself getting vaccinated and encouraged his followers to do the same. And you had best believe that the arm not getting an injection was flexed.
