Actor Tom Holland proved in the movie ‘Spider-Man – No Return Home’ that not all effects are done by the computer when editing the action scenes. The actor was his own stunt double in the scenes, playing the masked hero’s stunts in the film’s sets.

Thinking about Tom’s performance with the most elaborate jumps and stunts, Vanity Fair published a video with a compilation of pre-production scenes of the stunts performed by the actor without the use of his stunt double during the filming of the hit ‘Spider-Man – No homecoming’.

Some names on the list are Scarlett Johansson, who performs the simplest scenes and leaves the most elaborate for her stunt double; Brie Larson, who always shares her training and physical preparation for scenes with Captain Marvel and Chris Evans, who admits she enjoys doing the hand-to-hand fight scenes despite not knowing how to perform the stunts.
