'The Avengers' Stuntman Is 'Fine' After Getting Scalped


A spokesperson for Marvel explains that Jeremy Fitzgerald, who got scalped during the shooting of the movie, has received 'back up' and done 'several more takes'.

The production of "The Avengers" has left a stuntman injured. Jeremy Fitzgerald, one of the stuntmen in the superhero flick, got scalped when he smashed his head into a brick while filming a scene with Hawkeye. However, Marvel claimed that the stuntman was "fine".

"He slid briefly along the side of the building," a spokesperson for Marvel further detailed incident as quoted by TMZ. "He got right back up and did several more takes," the spokesperson continued.

During the shooting on Friday, June 24, Fitzgerald was supposed to get hit with an arrow before falling 30 feet off a building. Unfortunate for the stuntperson, he caught his foot during the fall and found himself hitting the brick.

Feeling the injury was not heavy enough, Fitzgerald went back to work with a bandage on the bleeding scalp. According to the publication, Fitzgerald "narrowly missed a razor sharp rain gutter during the accident".

"The Avengers" revolves around a superhero team who save the world from the biggest foe they've ever faced. Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr. will portray Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Iron Man respectively. The film itself will open wide across the U.S. on May 4, 2012.
