Marvel Studios certainly aren't pussyfooting around with production on Iron Man 3 currently underway in South Florida, and filming for Thor: The Dark World showcasing London “in a major way.” And now the studio has announced a familiar shooting location for their next “Phase 2” cinematic outing, that will follow the two aforementioned films. After doubling for New York City and Stuttgart, Germany last year for the production on Marvel's The Avengers colossal box office hit, Cleveland, Ohio is where principal photography for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to take place, according to Greater Cleveland Film Commission:

“Marvel is pleased to return to Ohio, this time with our Captain America: The Winter Soldier production. The location, talent and people of Ohio are sure to benefit our film, and we look forward to beginning production,” said Louis D'Esposito, Co-President, Marvel Studios.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission was in talks with Marvel Studios for weeks, sharing information about Ohio's physical assets and helping them learn about the benefits of filming in Ohio -- including the recently expanded Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive.

“We're thrilled that Marvel Studios is bringing another major motion picture project to Cleveland, and we're committed to showing them the very best our region has to offer,” said Ivan Schwarz, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. “We proved with the filming of Marvel's The Avengers that Cleveland has the talent, architecture and amazing locations that will provide filmmakers everything they need to ensure a successful filming experience, and the economic impact of this new project can't be denied. Filming will create a number of jobs for Ohioans and will give our region another chance to demonstrate how skilled, professional and dedicated our workforce truly is. We especially appreciate Governor Kasich and the Ohio Film Office for their support and timely approval of these exciting opportunities.”

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is committed to building a year-round, sustainable statewide film industry through job creation, workforce development, and attracting media production.

Frank G. Jackson, Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, stated, “We are thrilled to host Marvel and the filming of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2013. We have worked diligently with the Greater Cleveland Film Commission to make our city an attractive location for films of all sizes. Marvel's return to Cleveland shows we can provide a film-friendly atmosphere that will ultimately lead to a permanent presence of the film industry in Northeast Ohio.”

“We are thrilled that Cuyahoga County is being seen as a destination for filmmakers,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald. “The resources that we have to offer, including our skilled workforce, makes our region a natural fit for the film industry. Projects like this means jobs and economic development for Cuyahoga County.”


Basically, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission are pleased and thrilled for Marvel's return, which, according to Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans, will be some time around March next year.


Described as a political thriller, Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) continues his affiliation with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. With an expected return from James 'Bucky' Barnes (Sebastian Stan), actor Anthony Mackie is also set to star. And Anthony & Joe Russo (“Community,” “You, Me and Dupree”) take over directorial duties from Joe Johnston, who helmed the first film. And “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4, 2014.

Just kidding. I live somewhat close to Cleveland. Maybe I can get some footage when they're filming.

Chris Evans better get his ass in gear and bulk up, and stop bitching about the responsibilities of a job he signed up for especially since he's getting paid millions and putting his career on the mainstream fasttrack.

@toco... getting paid millions? Check out the interviews for the Iceman, you seemed behind.
DalyBear - 9/28/2012, 8:09 AM
yeah Chris Evans really hates being the captain
SpoonWielder - 9/28/2012, 8:16 AM
Yeah if I was Chris Evans, I'd totally hate my job too. But I'd lie about in every interview ever.
superotherside - 9/28/2012, 8:32 AM
Bring Cap 2 on. Wondering what will be shot in Cleveland...
toco89 - 9/28/2012, 8:38 AM
@criple

How bout a source link then, cuz all the sites on google say he bagged 2+ million for avengers alone, and others say after the success they are renegotiating for 6 to 8.

Anyway he agreed to get paid to look the part. Regardless of the specific amount, it's substantial for working out and refining the craft of acting like you're someone else.

Some people work just as hard and sacrifice a lot more than comfort for just a chance at making far less.

My hometown!!! Hell yeah!! Marvel sure seems to like shooting in New Mexico, North Carolina and Ohio.
criple15 - 9/28/2012, 8:53 AM
@toco: Yeah about 2 million but that is still not RDJ/SJ/SLJ money and I haven't read anything about a renegotiation. People like you are the reason he was hesitant to take this job, chill out and stop being so jealous. His job is so easy, you try it.

Check out the Iceman interviews, he's chilling out with the anxiety and looking forward to be in the sequel, everything you are being so bent out of shape for. He also said come January he's heading back to the gym.

Are you a happy fanboy now?

Depending on the size of the role and it's requirements, an actor could shoot three films in the time it takes to complete one comic book movie(from the beginning of weight training to the final weeks of post). I Think Norton did not want to pass up on some of the films on his radar(working with Wes Anderson, etc.) to be the Hulk for peanuts with zero creative input(he wrote a little bit of the Incredible Hulk)& practically zero face time last May. This is probably the reason, if Chris Evans sometimes doesn't seem overly enthusiastic, to be tied down for the next 8-10 years on his third(Push was sort of comic book-like, so fourth?) comic book character that could possibly typecast him and result in the loss of roles he really wants over the coming years which he would have landed regardless of CA: TFA or The avengers. Yeah, actors get paid a lot more than most professions, but it's not like he would not have a career if he wasn't Captain America. He also loves his pets and hates being away from them for amounts of time. Evans seems like a good, real guy, you know, the type of talent that feels acting should be for the camera on set, not everywhere else that it really does not matter.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he doesn't enjoy being Cap, but I personally would not seem so enthusiastic if the suit I was having to put up with each day was not being accepted by ridiculous fanboys, especially after you had said online, prior to the leaked set photos last year, that the Avengers Cap suit was awesome: no one likes it. In my opinion, I like his Avengers suit and really would only needs a minor tweak for the sequel.

I live in Cleveland. I'll see if I can get some shots!

Speaking of shots, who's up for some?

GIFfreyGinsberg - 9/28/2012, 9:05 AM
@the abomination

It's cheap to shoot in those places: brings business to areas, tax incentives, etc.
ultimatemarvelfan - 9/28/2012, 9:15 AM
@ NinjaJesus agreed I'm from there too
RamonSuarez - 9/28/2012, 9:18 AM
Well, Cap is a soldier and Cleveland does look bombed out....so I guess its the perfect choice.

pass the alcohol.
jimpinto24 - 9/28/2012, 9:39 AM
Good!
theshark2012 - 9/28/2012, 9:43 AM
i'm so stoked for phase two.

and everyone bitching at chris evans. leave him alone. he has to build his body back up to look like captain america and then maintain it throughout the course of production. even if i adored playing the captain i would still HATE having to do that. not mention the fact that eh knows he will have to do it again for the avengers 2
Ha1frican - 9/28/2012, 10:03 AM
Evans wouldnt have as hard a time bulking up if he maintained between shoots which isnt nearly as hard as bulking up
Ha1frican - 9/28/2012, 10:05 AM
@CaptainAhaBaha Thats because he isnt dead...
niknik - 9/28/2012, 10:08 AM
I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
criple15 - 9/28/2012, 10:16 AM
teabag is truth! lol
AC1 - 9/28/2012, 10:32 AM
@toco or here's another idea, how about you stop trying to tell him how to do his job? I mean it's like you think that getting into that kind of shape is some really easy task that anyone can do, when really it's a lot of hard work and it involves a lot of pain, stress and effort. And considering what he has to do to prepare for this role, and how big the role and the movie will be, he actually doesn't get paid that much compared to a lot of other actors. Even within the other Marvel films, Samuel L Jackson and Robert Downey Jr probably get paid like 5 times what Chris Evans gets, and neither of them have to go through such rigorous training for their parts.

And besides, it's not like he's refusing to get into shape. He's honoring the contract he signed and is doing everything required of him to look the part, and on top of that his performances in the role thus far have been great and he's one of the most underrated actors in these films. So with that in mind, I'm sure he absolutely has the right to express the fact that he doesn't enjoy the training involved in the role.

@blackandyellow I knew you would have to say something about it go steelers
Asterisk - 9/28/2012, 11:22 AM
I didn't like Cap 1, but I'll check this out for sure. Supporting EVERY movie in the Phase Two.


For the record, I'm the most excited for Ant-Man.

...i think christopher evans' body odor smells like candy canes and he is the reason rainbows happen...

@cipher and GoILL Here you go, gentleman! *passes shots to cipher and GoILL* Drink up!

Captain America TFA is still my favorite of all the Marvel movies. Can't wait for Winter Soldier. I just hope they fix his costume. The Avengers costume was horrendous!
weaponX2 - 9/28/2012, 12:07 PM
I don't get why people didn't like Cap's costume in the Avengers.It's not that bad and I think it translated to the screen pretty well...let's face it, costumes like Cap's are really hard to bring to the Big Screen without it looking ridiculous, and we all know that if they had made any real modifications that would make it look more realistic the fans would have gone nuts and said..."that doesn't look like Cap!" "Why can't they keep to the source material?!!" I thought it looked good...definitely better than all other previous incarnations..just my two cents
avengers72 - 9/28/2012, 1:50 PM
can`t wait for the filming!!!
blkyank - 9/28/2012, 2:30 PM
The costume from Captain America the First Avenger was designed by Howard Stark based on input from Steve Rogers.The suit in The Avengers was designed for Rogers
by S.H.E.I.L.D. using input from Phil Coulson.Nothing says that after the battle of New York,Rogers would not have taken a hand in redesigning the suit based on lessons learned from the battle and his prior experience in the WW2 suit.
blkyank - 9/28/2012, 2:31 PM
Sorry I ment S.H.I.E.L.D.

toco89 - 9/28/2012, 7:34 PM
@criple, ACira, and churchknight

What the hell are you going on about?

None of you adressed my point. It's like you didn't even read it, just saw certain words and adressed those as an issue that seemed close enough, but had nothing to do with what I actually wrote.
tyedye23 - 9/28/2012, 10:45 PM
Quit knockin Chris Evans, I'm sure he loves his job or else he wouldn't be doing what he's doing! He is a GREAT actor and practices his craft very well. Hell yeah, this movie will be titts just like the first! Also, Iceman is a bombass movie, dig it...
