I think it is the camera angle, there is no reason why a double would be needed for that scene. Doubles are obviously used as minimally as possible. I don't know a lot about holywood, but if the actor is capable, I would think they would film the scene. I think Tom is capable of elbowing someone.

I think I am the minority on this here? I could be wrong, but in my eyes, there isn't any visual doubt that it's Tom lol
I agree with you. Tom has said he prefers to do as much as possible by himself without a stunt double. When they use stunt doubles, they have to redirect the camera away from the double's face, otherwise it's way too obvious. Tom said in an interview he hates seeing the back of his head and so he does as many of his own stunts as he can.

Since that shot in the trailer is pretty focused on the face, I doubt it's a double. Definitely Tom.
