The show’s stunt coordinator Hiro Koda also revealed that social distancing could make the signature action sequences much harder to film.

He told ComicBook: ‘As far as social distancing, we can separate ourselves and work in and out of set in waves, instead of everybody on set at once. That’s easier to control.

‘Everybody can wear masks and gloves and whatever, but the actors can’t, they have to take the masks off. They’ve got to be in close contact.’
