Marvel's superhero workout routine and diet have done wonders for a lot of actors who are preparing for their respective projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest actor to undergo a drastic body transformation is Kumail Nanjiani who is gearing up for his debut as Kingo in Eternals but some people question his methods for achieving his ripped physique.

If you've been following Nanjiani's career all these years, you're well aware that the Pakistani-American comedian isn't the most chiseled actor in Hollywood. In fact, he's always looked pretty "husky" and in bad physical shape which is why his sudden and massive physical transformation came as a major shock to everyone.

Unsurprisingly, Kumail gained a lot of critics over the last couple of months and most of them are beyond convinced that the 42-year-old actor is taking the easy way out to achieve his muscular physique, even going as far as accusing him of taking in steroids to pack on some serious muscle and be ripped to shreds. 

The Stuber actor has yet to address the issue but fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe quickly came to his defense. Check out some of the reactions below:


To his credit, Kumail has been documenting his progress on social media and it doesn't look like he's cheating to achieve his desired look. It's unfair to accuse him of anything without hard evidence especially if he's busting his you-know-what on a regular basis. I mean, if guys like Paul Rudd and Chris Pratt were able to transform their bodies to fit their superhero roles, so can Nanjiani. This shouldn't be an issue at all.

The MCU's Eternals drops this November.
