Marvel announces return to Ohio filming locations for Captain America sequel
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will film partly on location in Ohio. Marvel previously recreated the streets of New York City in Cleveland for The Avengers. Ohio’s state filming incentive now has a richer film fund, making it more attractive for big-budget productions.
Louis D’Esposito is Co-President of Marvel Studios: “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.”
Ivan Schwarz is with 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.”

Marvel spent around USD25 million in Ohio with The Avengers shoot and the state will be hoping for a similarly dramatic cash injection this time around. It seems the state has beaten North Carolina, which had been eyeing the Captain America sequel while already hosting Iron Man 3. Studio work on The Winter Soldier will take place in Los Angeles.
Incentive options played a major role in securing Marvel's The Avengers for Ohio, as did location flexibility in sealing off sections of Cleveland for months at a time.
