Coming with the Captain will be more than 2,700 jobs including electricians, tailors and extras when the film starts production in February of ’13. Major film productions can also boost the economy including car rentals, hotel reservations, dining and supplies. The movie is slated for a Spring 2014 release date.
It wasn’t all the Captain’s doing as the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit gave a “superhero” $9.5 million dollar tax credit to Marvel Studios to film the latest sequel in the state. It’s estimated that Marvel will spend $35 million in Ohio while it is there. Filming locations will include Cleveland and unspecified locations in southern Ohio.
This isn’t the first Superhero sighting in the Buckeye State – Marvel filmed the 2011 blockbuster The Avengers in Ohio. Other movies filmed in Ohio in recent years include The Ides of March and Unstoppable.
