Marvel's Agents of SHIELD - Filming Locations: The Absorbing Man attacks S.H.I.E.L.D. car.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD

  The Southern California locations where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is filmed.

Episode 1, of Season 2 ("Shadows")

New S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives Izzy Hartley & Lance Hunter are already in trouble
when this scene starts: Izzy (Lucy Lawless) has made the mistake of touching
"The Obelisk" artifact, and it has turned her arm to stone.

The duo are in a car, as Hunter tries to get Izzy to a hospital, before the spreading
stone transformation kills her.  She tells him to cut off her arm.  He does.

But talk about jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire...

Up ahead, standing in the middle of the road, blocking their path, is none other
than Crusher Creel, "The Absorbing Man", who is capable of touching
any object and absorbing its properties, to use to his advantage.

Creel touches the asphalt street and absorbs its strength.

The car rams into his super-strong body, flips, rolls, and crashes upside down.

Inside the car, Izzy is dead from the crash.  But her stone arm is lying out on the street,
still clutching The Obelisk.  That's good news for Hunter, because he's a sitting duck
trapped in the upside-down car.

But the Absorbing Man sees the Obelisk, and (aware of its danger), touches the
car's rubber tire and turns his own arm to rubber, so that he can safely pick up the Obelisk.

Once he has what he came for, he doesn't bother checking to see
if everyone in the car is dead.  He just walks away with his prize.

This scene was shot on the 12100 block of W. Bluff Creek Drive, at the intersection
Artisans Way, in the Playa Vista section of West Los Angeles.

The car is heading north on Bluff Creek Drive, approaching Artisans Way, when they encounter
the Absorbing Man
. The car crash/rollover ends up with the car on the east side of Bluff Creek.

This spot is about a half mile northwest of the Promenade at Howard Hughes Center,
and the new Raleigh studios nearby, and less than two miles east of the Ballona wetlands.
It's west of the San Diego (405) Freeway, about half a mile southwest of the Fox Hills mall.

Here is a matching Google StreetView of the intersection:
