Detroit Free Press has confirmed Latino Review’s scoop from a few days back, Marvel Studios has chosen North Carolina over Michigan has the site for filming Iron Man 3. Marvel reportedly was seeking between $20-30 million in incentives to film in Michigan.
The Michigan Film Office offered $13M, short of the $20M offered by North Carolina. Michigan ultimately upped their offer to match the $20M, but that deal would have had to be approved by the state’s legislature and Marvel was unwilling to wait.
Filming will begin next year.
Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
