true adrenaline junky in the movie industry but, as a fan of superheroes…he is living out the dream of many fans by being in these hugely popular films. He has also managed to do what is forbidden for the stars of these movies. He is able to vacillate between both the Marvel and DC universes. With nearly thirty years in his professional career (no, he isn’t that old…he started young) Chute has credits that most Sci-Fi and Comic Book fans drool over. RoboCop, Pacific Rim, 300, Repo Men, the list goes on and on. While fans of these films wait in anticipation of the films, Mike has become immersed in their production. He not only interacts with the filmmakers and the stars of the film but often doubles them and is at the heart of the action which they take credit for. Because stuntmen like Mike are often “faceless” in these movies, this fact and his respected reputation in the industry has made him one of the most coveted stuntmen by both Marvel and DC franchises.
Although he will admit to not being a huge comic book fan, Mike openly professes his joy of the X-Men cartoon series (He also admits to being slightly offended by an inside joke in one of the films alluding to Wolverines yellow spandex suit from the early comic book and cartoon). In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Mike played a member of the President’s security detail. The climactic scene shows Magneto transporting the metal bunker to the lawn of the White House for the movie’s final confrontation. Most of Chute’s actual fighting scenes took place in the previous scene with the sentinels attacking. The movie’s cast includes Oscar-nominee Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Oscar-nominee Michael Fassbender, Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, and so many of the most respected names in Hollywood. The stuntmen like Chute help to create the believable action in this blockbuster (Grossing $723 MM worldwide).
