Marvel Studios might have a new favorite filming location. New reports claim Marvel is planning to film Captain America 2 in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Iron Man 3 is filming now.
Though, it sounds like their plan is dependent on the state keeping their generous film incentives.
Seems that the [North Carolina] tax breaks for productions are set to expire and the legislative bodies of North Carolina need to scramble to extend them by next Tuesday or watch them expire on January 1st, 2014. State Rep. Danny McComas said extending the credit could help North Carolina score the sequel to ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.
The sequel will begin shooting in January 2013.
