    What makes you say that? They look like standard lateral pull ups to me.

    What are „proper“ pull-ups by your definition?
    The name is Walker by the way.

    We never see his legs. Only from behind. It doesn't look like him. Looks like a double.

    Judging by his distinct head shape and his training level in general when doing Bond movies...I think it‘s DC.

    This is him from behind when he gets down.

    I think it would be reasonable if someone is holding his legs: he'd be having to repeat the scene probably and there's a limit to the amount you can keep doing that! :) I've always thought it looks pretty convincing though.

    -{ And you see him doing them from the front - and from the front they look like proper (lateral) pull-ups to me.

    I think it’s more important how the action looks on screen no matter how much of those he did himself. I don’t remember the movie but I read something that while doing something for real in front of the camera sometimes come out looking strange and so faking it in a certain way actually registers better on screen. Then there’s also the number of takes. So, yeah, I agree that without a doubt we know he can do pull-ups in real life.
