As we all know, Chris Hemsworth is an absolute tank - befitting of the role of Marvel superhero Thor. The Aussie has always been as fit as a fiddle, but in recent times he has really taken it to the next level.
However, fans are now questioning whether he's really as buff as he appears - even asking whether his musclebound arm is real.
Hemsworth's current extreme henchness was exhibited for all to see in his latest Instagram post, which he ironically labelled as a tribute to 'national don't flex day'.
Celebrating the end of filming on Thor: Love and Thunder, the 37-year-old wrote: "That's a wrap on Thor: Love and Thunder, it's also national don't flex day so I thought this super relaxed photo was appropriate.
"The film is gonna be bats**t crazy off the wall funny and might also pull a heart string or two. Lots of love, lots of thunder! Thank you to all the cast and crew who made this another incredible Marvel journey. Buckle in, get ready and see ya in cinemas!!"
But while Marvel fans were undoubtedly excited to hear that they're getting closer to their next Thor fix, it was Hemsworth's bulging bicep which caught the eye - with some people refusing to believe it can be real:

Is Chris Hemsworth's arm real?

So when the film comes out, and you think the CGI has rendered his arms impossibly massive, just know that those guns ain't computer-generated.
But while his arms might be raking in the plaudits, Hemsy's legs got a bit of a roasting the other day.
Commenting on an Insta photo, older brother Luke said: "Bro?! You've been skipping leg days again?!"
This trolling instigated a pile on, with presumably far less fit people taking the opportunity to have a pop at him.
One person commented: "Damn Thor, how do you toss that hammer and not fall with those neglected legs my man? Double up those leg days and cut back on the arm and chest and get more symmetry."
One person who knows for sure that Hemsworth has been hitting the gym hard is his stunt double Bobby Holland-Hanton, who said mirroring his current shape is more difficult than ever.
Speaking to Fitzy and Wippa's radio show in February, he said: "Dude, listen, everyone is like, 'Wow, look at the size of him,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, that's brilliant, I'm that guy's double.'
"So I text him, I'm like, 'Thanks very much, dude, you've just made this even harder.'
"I train with him a lot, we train all the time, we're on the same diet regimen and training. He's the biggest he's ever been so I have to be the biggest I've ever been, which is a challenge but I'm up for it."
