Marvel Studios is planning to film The Avengers in the U.S. state of New Mexico, which would make the film the largest film project in history of the State. At present, The Avengers are in pre-production, principal photography and should start in April and go until September 2011.
New Mexico began in 2002 an incentive program for major film and TV rounds are there, offering a 25% tax deduction. According to the state governor, Bill Richardson, the project has generated $ 4 billion to the economy of New Mexico and generated 10,000 jobs, direct and indirect.
The Avengers will be filmed in a studio in the city of Albuquerque. The film directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson in the cast will be launched in May 2012.
