       So it turns out Michigan lost the chance to work with along side Marvel in the Avengers film 7 months ago and now again with Iron Man 3 the reason being some new law they have in place.

 

 

 

 

Freep.com has the scoop:

Seven months after “The Avengers” decided not to film in Michigan, the state has lost out on an opportunity to attract another blockbuster after negotiations with Marvel Studios to make “Iron Man 3” went awry.

The Hollywood studio had sought between $20 million to $30 million in incentives to film in Michigan, but the Michigan Film Office initially offered just $13 million, causing Marvel to launch talks with other states, said Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe.

The Michigan Film Office upped its offer to $20 million, matching North Carolina, according to Richardville, who tried to attract the movie to the state. But he said Marvel chose to film in North Carolina because it guaranteed the money whereas Michigan’s deal was contingent on future legislative approval. Marvel did not return several requests seeking comment.

“They were more prepared than we were to win that deal,” said Richardville, who was critical of the Michigan Film Office’s handling of the negotiations. “We were seen as a real player and this is a real blow to that reputation.”

The Film Office confirmed the $20-million offer. “We put a competitive and fiscally responsible offer on the table,” said spokeswoman Michelle Begnoche. “They, like projects every day, had to make a business decision.”

The rejection shows the difficulty Michigan faces in attracting major movie productions to the state after dropping its generous incentives in favor of a more limited program.

So here is a gallery via Celebuzz, Just Jared, SplashNewsOnline, and Cinemarcado with all the latest Avengers photos including one piece of artwork with Loki [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]:

Here is an interview via Total Film with Joss Whedon speaking about The Hulk and the Avengers:

Total Film: Are you basing The Avengers on any particular comic book series?

Whedon: No, it’s an amalgam. There’s some originals, some Ultimates and some characters from different runs-and hopefully some new stuff too. We’re certainly not going to have Hulk killing hundreds of people. It’s not as cute on film as it is in the comics.

Who are The Avengers going to be fighting?

Well we all know Loki’s in the house, beyond that I’m not saying!

Will we be seeing any new villains from outside the Marvel Universe?

We’re definitely going to see something new…but I’m playing this one close to the chest!
