Will is no stranger to putting his body through intense training. During a 2016 interview with Men’s Journal he said his workout regimen for The Suicide Squad was so intense that he tore a leg muscle during the early stages of shooting.
“When you’re 47 years old, no injury is a mild injury anymore,” he said at the time. “I was stepping back to throw a blow, and my calf popped. Everyone heard it. The doctor there told me that I was going to be down for six weeks, but I couldn’t allow that.”
