Introducing: CC Ice. CC is a professional stunt woman known for doubling Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Scarlet Johansson’s Black Widow throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She is the owner of Space Cat Stunts Inc, Apex Entertainment Studios, and The Chamber Gym.
In this episode, we discuss CC’s love for Aliens’ Ripley and T2’s (Terminator 2) Sarah Connor, how being a dancer helps stunt performers work with fight partners to sell a story, married life as a stunt industry couple, the influence of CC’s incredibly daring wing-walker pilot family, and how being a magician’s assistant helped her master movie magic.
CC also helps us breakdown the final battle of WandaVision, Infinity War’s fight between Scarlet Witch and Proxima Midnight, and her latest work in the Black Widow solo film. She talks about the difference between making a Marvel series and a Marvel feature film, mastering and evolving the movements of Scarlet Witch, blending magic conjuring with hand-to-hand combat, and playing a dangerous game of memory while running along unstable Budapest roofs.
Join us as we chat with CC Ice: from magician’s assistant to movie magic to chaos magic superhero.
