David Grant, vice-president of physical production for Marvel Studios, praised the state that has become a long-term home for the superhero brand.

Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Spider-Man: Homecoming, to name just three, have been based in Georgia.

“Every time we come back to make a movie here in Georgia the experience gets better,” said Grant.

“The infrastructure for film production continues to improve and the bench of creative professionals we can draw on gets deeper – and that’s because as a community you have committed to making Georgia a great place to make films and television shows.”

Last year Georgia was revealed to be the top US production hub for American movies, ahead of close international competitors the UK and Canada.

Marvel has expressed a desire to base more productions in California, but filming incentive support is much more limited for movies shooting in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Nonetheless, Marvel has managed to secure incentive support worth $20m for its upcoming movie Captain Marvel, starring Oscar-winner Brie Larson, which is set to be the largest Marvel film to shoot in California for several years.
