Hollywood has many tricks to make impossible and dangerous stunts into a reality. Movies like "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Baby Driver," and "Elf" used a Texas switch to allow an actor and their stunt double to switch places on screen without having to cut. "Avengers: Endgame" and "Men in Black: International" used wire rigs known as ratchet pulls to make it seem like characters were being hit by a serious blow. Meanwhile, a tuning fork can make characters like Maleficent and Captain Marvel look like they're flying, and a tarp known as a magic carpet gave characters in "Underworld" superspeed.
