- List of stunt doubles Avengers lead characters
- Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is being doubled by his five years stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton
- He revealed how he worked hard to achieve the physique of the lead actor
“Avengers: Infinity War” has left fans puzzled after its unexpected movie ending. The created excitement only made viewers a lot more thrilled to wait for the sequel. But before that, wouldn’t it be nice to know the people behind the action packed scenes in the movie?
It’s not the staff or the camera men nor the lead actors, but we are referring to the professional stunt men who doubled for our favorite heroes. They’re the ones who did the difficult stunts and partly the reason behind the block buster success of the movie.
Well then, let’s start with the ‘Lord of Thunder’.
Chris Hemsworth portrays the character of Thor. He’s been doubled by an Australian pro stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton who, according to Men’s Health, has been doing his stunt for Chris over the last five years. Not only that he works for all the “Thor” scenes, Hanton has been one of the most in-demand stuntmen in the business; doubling for Christian Bale’s Batman, Daniel Craig’s James Bond, and Chris Evan’s Captain America.
A stuntman needs to work hard or put a lot of effort to somehow look similar to the character he’s copying. Just like Hanton who revealed how he worked hard to achieve the physique of Chris.
