Spiderman To Save cleveland

"cLEVELAND - Watch out for Spider-Man on the city's trademark Terminal Tower skyscraper. "Spider-Man 3," starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, will shoot exterior scenes next month, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced Wednesday.Cleveland won out over New York City, where it's more expensive to shut down streets.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission landed the Spider-Man filming in part by offering free soundstage space at the city's convention center."
I always knew that a superhero was required to help that place.

Why the hell is Spider-Man going to Cleveland? He lives in Queens? Is he going on vacation or something? Who goes to CLEVELAND on vacation? Are they going to try and make Cleveland look like NYC in the movie? What is the world coming to????

It is Free and Queens is not.

Cleveland is amazing. We don't want to be NYC. No way, no thanks!

It's not the first time they've filmed bits of Spiderman in other cities. The part on the elevated train in Spiderman 2 was filmed in Chicago.

It's just cheaper to film in the Midwest.

Stacey,

Why are you saying "we." You haven't lived there in more than a decade.

Ann,

Dollars speak.
