WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Iron Man may like the ocean, but it looks like Captain America prefers the lake.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” long rumored to be considering Wilmington as a filming location, will film portions in Cleveland in 2013, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced Friday.

Over the summer North Carolina extended its own film tax incentives through 2014. Many believed the push for the extension was to help lure the “Captain America” sequel to the Tar Heel State. The film, starring Chris Evans, is set to be released in 2014.

Another Marvel production, “Iron Man 3,” shot in and around Wilmington all summer long.

    Not to mention that lawmakers renigged on their promises to Iron Man III so they are pulling out for the last month of filming and staying the entire time in Miami instead of comming back to Wilmington to film. Once word of mouth gets around in the film industry of how unfriendly North Carolina law makers are you can say goodbye to the film industry. But I guess giving subsidies to cement companies like Titan that pollute the enviroment than the film industry that employs thousands and supports local business and restuarants through its purchases is more favorable.

    Thanks NC lawmakers for not guranteeing the incentive to Marvel for Captain America so now they are going to Ohio. It is only a matter of time before NC becomes an oasis of unemployed former film employees like it was three years ago.

    it’s Bush’s fault? Where’s Obama…where’s McIntyre…where’s John Hinnant when you need them. Oh the travesty of it all!

    is to have the Wilmington Film Commissioner square off against the film commissioner of whatever community thinks it’s a better site for filming. Winner takes all.

    Why didn’t smiley stop over, in Hollywood, on her way to Japan to make some personal, hand shaking attempts to secure the filming?
