Marvel seems to have taken a liking to our humble little city.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced this morning that portions of Captain America: The Winter Soldier will film in Cleveland, which is just the latest bit of validation that the Forest City is a booming film mecca, your lame "Call Me Maybe" parody on YouTube not withstanding.

From the press release:

This film project follows on the heels of Marvel Studio’s 2012 blockbuster Marvel’s The Avengers, which filmed in several locations throughout Ohio in 2011, broke a number of box office records, and was the fastest film ever to gross $1 billion in sales worldwide.

“Marvel is pleased to return to Ohio, this time with our Captain America: The Winter Soldier production. The location, talent and people of Ohio are sure to benefit our film, and we look forward to beginning production,” said Louis D’Esposito, Co-President, Marvel Studios.

Um, can Scarlett Johansson come back, just for shits and giggles?
