Blockbuster Film ‘Avengers’ films in Cleveland, Ohio
Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders coined the phrase, “Way to go Ohio.” It seems appropriate today as Disney / Marvel’s The Avengers is getting rave early reviews and is prepped to take box offices by storm next week.
Many of the action sequences and battle scenes were filmed in beautiful Downtown Cleveland. Public Square, the Courthouse Building on Lakeside, Superior Avenue and many other locations around town gave director Joss Whedon the look and flexibility he needed.
With the support of the Cleveland Film Commission’s Ivan Schwartz and Jason Drake, The Avengers had a wonderful experience filming on the shores of Lake Erie. Great work, guys!
The Production flew most of the Stunt crew out from Los Angles to perform the technical stunts. Stunt Coordinator RA Rondell “Matix, Superman, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” a Brand X Member over saw and designed the stunt sequences in the Cleveland area.
Here’s hoping more blockbuster films realize the value of filming in Cleveland. I know T Minus Productions can’t wait to film there!
Way to go Ohio!
