If you can't tell this street is in Cleveland, look behind the two superheroes at the building with flags attached to the outside. That is the Medical Mutual building. Ten seconds into the clip you'll notice a MAC storefront in the background. This is one of many phony exteriors installed simply for the film's production. At the 14-second mark, you'll spot the Cleveland Trust Company on the far right side of the screen. For the film, the building was rebranded as a Capital One Bank.
