Spider-Man 2

Today's #OneShotWed comes from Spider-Man 2 (2004), a movie set in New York and filmed partly in Chicago.


In this scene, Spider-Man and Dr. Octopus fight atop a moving ‘L’ train. Since Manhattan has few elevated tracks, special effects crews were sent to Chicago to film 'L' stations and the surrounding city environment. Characters were digitally inserted later.


Movie magic! (Well, computer magic.)
