Hugh Jackman is about to put those muscles to good use — as a former boxer who puts robots, rather than humans, in the ring.

Real Steel, starring the Aussie hunk centers on a prize-fighter who has to reinvent himself when human opponents are replaced by robotic ones, reports Variety.

Wolverine star Hugh, 42, plays a struggling Robot Boxing promoter who finds a discarded android that always seems to win.

Meanwhile, he also discovers he has a 11-year-old son, and they bond as the mechanical version of Rocky punches its way toward the top.
