Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Film in Ohio

Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Film in Ohio

The filmmakers were looking for a "dark, wretched hellhole" and settled on the state.

While Stan Lee might have cancelled out on the state of Ohio, America's favorite son has not.  The Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced today that Captain America: The Winter Soldier would film in both Northeast and Southern Ohio.  This is the second time that Marvel has visited the fair state of Ohio, which was voted as "Better than New Jersey" in a nationwide poll.  The Avengers also filmed many of its outdoor scenes in Ohio, including most of the climatic end battle scene.

An unnamed (and likely fictional) source for the film noted that it was looking for a place to mimic the doom, gloom and hopelessness associated with Soviet Russia.  Ohio, which doubled for former Russia satellite nation Kazakhstan in Air Force One, seemed like a natural fit.  Marvel will spend about $35 million in Ohio, matching the Cleveland Indians' total annual payroll.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will star Chris Evans as Cap, Anthony Mackie as the Falcon and Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier.
