WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Iron Man may like the ocean, but it looks like Captain America prefers the lake.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” long rumored to be considering Wilmington as a filming location, will film portions in Cleveland in 2013, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced Friday.
According to WEWS-TV in Cleveland, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission said it was in talks with Marvel Studios for weeks, sharing information about Ohio’s physical assets and the benefits of filming in the Buckeye State, including the recently expanded Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive.
Over the summer North Carolina extended its own film tax incentives through 2014. Many believed the push for the extension was to help lure the “Captain America” sequel to the Tar Heel State. The film, starring Chris Evans, is set to be released in 2014.
Another Marvel production, “Iron Man 3,” shot in and around Wilmington all summer long.
