/Film got their hands on some cool pictures from the Toronto location shoot for Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Kick-Ass, depicting a scene straight from the comic book by Mark (“Wanted”) Millar and John (“Amazing Spider-Man”, “Uncanny X-Men”, you name it) Romita Jr. The scene being shot by the production’s 2nd Unit is of a flying superhero being felled and crashing through a taxi cab, which comes from the opening of the story and movie.
/Film reader Dan B. depicts the scene being shot as such:
â€œComing back from a Jays game happen to catch what appeared to be 2nd Unit for Kick-Ass. Didnâ€™t see Matthew Vaughn on site. They seemed to be shooting the opening shots of the movie. The camera starts off facing the wrecked taxi and ends up on a close up of the license plate that reads â€˜Kick-Assâ€™ Here are the shots taken with my Iphone.â€
