Some actors insist on doing all their own stunts, but by and large, when one of your favorite heroes gets tossed through a wall, kicked in the head, or sent flying through the air, it's probably the work of a stunt double. This is definitely true in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where Avengers like Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson use highly trained athletes to perform their more strenuous on-screen moves. Because the MCU is so loaded with explosive action, the stunt doubles spend a lot of time on set, often forging friendships with their movie star counterparts. It really shows in these photos, whether they're from behind-the-scenes or off-set at an awards show.
