Do they film anything in Hollywood California anymore? The Walking Dead shoots in Atlanta. All the Harry Potters were filmed in England. Now it seems that Cleveland Ohio is the center point for the Marvel Universe. First the city of Cleveland was a substitute for New York in The Avengers. Well one Avenger will now return to Cleveland for his Winter Soldier sequel.
“The Greater Cleveland Film Commission Friday confirmed earlier reports that the film [Captain America: Winter Soldier] would be shot in Cleveland”, according to Cleveland.com.
The film will be shot partially there in 2013. Something tells me that the $9.5 million tax credit Marvel Studios received has something to do with it. The Walking Dead production receives a similar incentive from the state of Georgia.
Officially only 30% of The Avengers was filmed in Cleveland, the Cap sequel promises to film even more there.
Thanks to aegrant for the submission.
