Another major movie production is saying “adios” to Southern California. Marvel Studios reportedly has agreed to shoot “Iron Man 3” in North Carolina due,mainly to the state’s 25 percent  production tax credit, according to Deadline.com

The first two installments of the Iron Man franchise made over a billion dollars worldwide. Both were shot in Los Angeles. The “Iron Man 3”  production will be heading to Wilmington after the first of the year — taking with it hundreds of valuable  jobs.  A serious bummer for tons of  job hungry  movie production workers here in the Southland.  Details here.
