And while the footage of Michael Cera’s Scott Pilgrim throwing down with skateboarder-turned-actor Lucas Lee (Chris Evans) was impressive on its own, Wright took some time out to explain the clip a little better to MTV readers — and offer a little behind-the-scenes information about the scene too.
“[It’s] a clip of ex number two, who is Lucas Lee, pro skateboarder-turned-action star played by Chris Evans, and he’s making a new film in Toronto,” Wright explained. “Rather unwisely, Scott Pilgrim stumbles across the set and is about to get his ass handed to him.”
As Wright said, it’s only the second of seven battles Scott Pilgrim must wage against the evil ex-lovers of his girlfriend, Ramona Flowers. But when Scott ends up on the wrong side of a beating in the clip, it isn’t delivered by Evans’ character. As you see in the clip (if you haven’t watched it, do it now!), Lucas Lee’s stunt team gets in on the action, forcing Scott to fight off not one, but a whole crew of Lucas look-alikes.
According to Wright, the stunt team also happens to be a real group of stunt actors who double for Evans.
“They are his stunt guys,” Wright told MTV News. “And the joke is that, as they fan out, they look less and less like Chris Evans. So the main one looks very much like Chris Evans, two and three are pretty good, [but] five, six and seven, not so good.”
