Black Widow and Elektra’s Stunt Doubles Fight to See Who Would Win

Stunt performing requires incredible skill and athleticism, but the scenes they perform are usually so entertaining we forget we’re watching a trained professional. Last month we tagged along with super stuntwoman Annabel Wood who showed us some of her amazing skills, which she has plied on Game of Thrones, Wonder Woman and more. Now two crazy talented ladies from the Marvel universe gave fans a behind the scenes look at their incredible talents.

Lauren Mary Kim, stunt double for Élodie Yung as Elektra in Daredevilposed a very interesting question to fans on her Instagram. Who would win in a fight between Black Widow and Elektra? To find out, Kim enlisted fellow performer Amy Johnston who performed all of the stunts for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The fight is so crazy intense and they make the choreography look like two highly trained assassins. The artists start out with weapons, but after a few close calls they manage to disarm one another. Then the hand to hand combat begins with some crazy kicks and punches with pinpoint precision. Not a single move is wasted in the lightning fast battle. The best part is that you’re able to see all of the action whereas in the movies, editing often makes it hard to follow an entire sequence.

Place your bets for who you think will come out on top then watch the clip to see Kim’s answer.
