Some genius has found raw footage of actors jumping in Marvel movies and edited it into one hilarious GIF.


It’s one thing to know that all those massive leaps are just animation and trickery, it’s another to actually see evidence of it. It also kind of nice to know that while most of us will never have Chris Hemsworth’s fame or money or ripped body, we might share his 11-inch vertical leap. Or that while we’ll never be Sherlock Holmes, we almost certainly are all better at jumping that Benedict Cumberbatch, who legitimately looks like he’s never jumped before.
