Live from... Cleveland! New York City cabs being crushed, during the filming of a scene from The Avengers. The production team, helmed by Joss Whedon, attempted to make East 9th Street in Cleveland look like Times Square, according to Movieline—did they succeed? The folks at Medical Mutual filmed some of the action from their offices above, and you can check out video on their Facebook page—there's a lot of black smoke explosions!
