With a handful of major movie roles coming up, it appears things are going well for actor Brendan Fraser - whose fans have nothing but love for his 'comeback', having dubbed this era the 'Brenaissance'.

Viewers have enjoyed watching Fraser in action as superhero Robotman (aka Cliff Steele) in DC Universe action series Doom Patrol, which he has starred in since it premiered in 2019.

But he's also got some huge projects in the pipeline, including Martin Scorsese's Apple TV film Killers of the Flower Moon, in which Fraser is set to star alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.


There's also Brothers, which is a forthcoming film from Palm Springs director Max Marbakow, and Darren Aronofsky's The Whale, where Fraser will play a 600lb middle-aged recluse called Charlie, who is trying to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter.

And with all the news of Fraser's expanding filmography, fans are delighted for him - saying his 'comeback' is well and truly underway.

One person tweeted: "Here for the Brendan Fraser comeback. Here for it."

Someone else said: "It's nice to know that the one thing that seems to unite everyone on twitter is seeing Brendan Fraser happy and making a big career comeback. #Brenaissance."

A third wrote: "So glad to hear that Brendan Fraser is going to be in Martin Scorsese's next film. I'm ready for his comeback."

A protective social media user also added: "It's very nice Brendan Fraser is having his comeback, it's well deserved and I'm sure he's delighted to be creating again, but if I hear about anyone being even slightly mean to him on set you're all F***ing Done For."

Fraser has previously spoken about how several events in his personal life kept him out of the public eye, saying in a 2018 GQ interview: "I changed houses, I went through a divorce. Some kids were born. I mean, they were born, but they're growing.

"I was going through things that mould and shape you in ways that you're not ready for until you go through them."

He also revealed the physical toll his career has had on him over the years, saying: "By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China, I was put together with tape and ice.

"I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily."

Fraser revealed he spent 'seven years in and out of hospital' due to the number of injuries he sustained while doing his own stunts.

He went on to list the various treatments and procedures he had to undergo to try and fix the multitude of problem he had picked up - including an operation to remove a portion of vertebra in his lower back to make room within his spinal canal.

And if that doesn't sound traumatic enough, the actor said the procedure - called a lumbar laminectomy - didn't take and he had to go through it all over again the following year.
