'Avengers' Stuntman -- SCALPED During 30-Foot Fall

6/27/2011 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A stuntman for the new "Avengers" movie nearly lost his entire head last Friday during a 30-foot fall gone horribly wrong -- but thankfully, the guy just lost a bloody chunk of hair instead.

Stuntman Jeremy Fitzgerald tells TMZ, his job was simple -- get hit with an arrow and fall 30 feet off a building ... but he caught his foot on the way down, and slammed his head into the brick ... leaving behind a freshly peeled slab of scalp.

But it could have been a LOT worse -- according to Jeremy, he narrowly missed a razor sharp rain gutter during the accident.

And if all that wasn't badass enough -- Jeremy tells us, he went right back to work after the fall ... no hospital, no stitches ... just a bandage.

UPDATE: A Marvel spokesperson tells TMZ, "[Jeremy] was fine. He slid briefly along the side of the building.  He got right back up and did several more takes."

That's graphic? I've seen much much worse on Paramedic calls. This is nothing but a boo boo.
