Captain America will fight crime in Cleveland

September 28, 2012 - Andy Gray
Superheroes are returning to Cleveland. At least one is.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced this morning that Marvel Studios will film portions of “Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in northeast Ohio.

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, was part of “Marvel’s The Avengers,” which spent several weeks shooting in downtown Cleveland in 2011. Public Square and East Ninth Street were recognizable in the summer blockbuster, which is the third-highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation).

Filming for “Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will begin next year, and it is scheduled for released in 2014. It will be directed by Cleveland natives Anthony and Joe Russo, who shot their film “Welcome to Collinwood” (starring George Clooney and Sam Rockwell) in Cleveland a decade ago. The brothers have gone on to work on such television series as “Arrested Development” and “Community.”

The movie will take advantage of the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive, which was expanded in June. The tax incentive provides for a refundable credit against the corporation franchise or income tax for motion pictures produced in Ohio.
