American Federation of Musicians Pickets Marvel Studios
Not everyone is happy with Marvel‘s The Avengers. The American Federation of Musicians picketed Marvel Studios’ Manhattan Beach facility handing out leaflets. The organization is unhappy that the film was scored in Europe instead of the United States. The leaflets read:
How many more billions do you have to make before Marvel will score their film music at home.
Other aspects of the movie were “union-made” and it received production incentive tax breaks designed to keep productions in the United States. Disney allowed Marvel to score the movie overseas to save money.
