“Captain Marvel,” the upcoming superhero movie starring Brie Larson as the title character, will receive more than $20 million in tax credits to film in California, making it the first Marvel Comics movie to shoot primarily in-state since 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
Eight studio and independent features were selected from 92 applications for the $68 million handed out in the latest round of tax incentives that are designed to attract more big-budget movie shoots to California. They include “Midway,” a World War II film directed by Roland Emmerich, and “Cheney,” a biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney, starring Christian Bale.
A Paramount production with the working title “Island Plaza” has been allocated the most in tax incentives for this round at $21.5 million. The studio recently qualified for tax incentives on “Bumblebee,” the upcoming “Transformers” spinoff movie that is set to receive a record $22.4 million in credits.
