WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- We told you yesterday about plans to bring filming of a major motion picture to the Cape Fear. Today, we're learning that producers of "Iron Man 3" may have chosen Wilmington over other locations because of state film incentives.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan originally offered Marvel $13 million in incentives, but upped that to $20 million to match North Carolina. The Michigan Film Office told the newspaper that the film chose North Carolina instead because the money was guaranteed.

Marvel did not respond to requests for comment.
