CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Avengers are coming to Cleveland.

Gov. John Kasich announced that the upcoming Marvel movie featuring the superhero team The Avengers, scheduled for a 2012 release, will be filmed in Cleveland.

He made the announcement before Mayor Frank Jackson's State of the City address this afternoon at the City Club.


Wayne Hill, chairman of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, said the Avengers movie will be the largest film ever made in Ohio and that filming is expected to start in the fall.

Reportedly, people associated with the film are already in Cleveland scouting out locations.

Ivan Schwarz, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, said the movie also means jobs.

"It's tremendous for the city's and the regional effort to have films made here," he said. "It means a lot of jobs for people in our area."
The film was to have been shot in Detroit, but was moved to Cleveland after reports that Michigan's governor planned to eliminate the tax credits.

"Marvel has stated publicly that the change was because of the tax credit loss," said Hill. "The fact that we have it in Ohio has made a huge difference."

I wouldn't get too excited about it. Right before the big fight scenes, they'll move shooting to Miami.

Well, back when Michigan was in the running there was a press release that said the movie would be shot in New Mexico for tax incentive reasons, and that Michigan would be the on-location shooting, along with NYC.

So.. I'm sure that's still the plan now.

Most of the movie shot in New Mexico, with Cleveland and NYC as on location.

huh, tax breaks to get big companies and big projects to COME to a city.

almost as if being competitive on taxes can attract companies to bring jobs.


but that couldn't be right? :smt017

If they ever make a Great Lakes Avengers movie they will probably shoot it in Vancouver.

They needed a town that looked like a wreck. Spend less money that way for the aftermath scenes. :groucho:
