    It's kinda sad that with as much CG there is that the real stunts aren't appreciated as much because we assume more of it is "fake".

    If you ever come across this comment, you speaking about your love for, and working with, your husband was wonderful. I wish I had been there, or maybe not as I would likely have hugged you both! I do wonder why your not being booked as lead actor, or perhaps you are, and I don't recognise you yet. Thank you for sharing

    If it was her in the clips why do the faces look like the actors

    • Tom A
      Tom A Vor 8 Tage

      Ava Clark CGI, and often smooth transition. So when she is moving and rolling real quick they use her face and it is kinda blurred and then when she slows down she may have her arm go over her face and then once it passes it reveals the actual actor who will swap out and continue the scene, the Wonder Woman scene is a perfect example of this.

    Are you kidding me?? I'm only a few minutes in, and I'm in disbelief that ANY of these stunts have been done by real people. They're so crazy I can only assume they'd be done by cgi. This is nuts. I can't believe the body can sustain these hits and still not develop chronic issues. Also, why are the sets and props (including semi truck roofs) NOT all created with 12" thick foam padding if a fragile body is going to be bouncing off of them! Talk about saving a few bucks... She's a boss. x
