Shreveport was once a magnet for major film productions. With more than 20 movies being filmed in the area that went onto make over $20 million at the box office.

A lot of that dried up when the state told the film industry to pack sand. But even if there's never another movie filmed in the Shreveport area, a lot of history has already been made here. When we explore that history through a particular lens, you can find some really interesting things.

We looked at all of the movies, shows, and other productions that have taken place in the Shreveport area, and cross-referenced them with all the comic book productions we could think of. A pretty impressive list started to form. Check it out here:

Comic Book Movie Stars Who Have Worked In Shreveport

We utilized IMDB's filming location database to help put this together. However there is one movie listed there that we didn't include. IMDB lists X-Men Origins: Wolverine on their Shreveport list, but we struggled to find citing for this. So we just left it off. Some of these stars weren't in comic book "movies" specifically.

But we counted the Netflix Marvel shows, and MCU Disney+ shows as well.

We also added in an odd option...pro wrestlers. Pro wrestling has been a big deal in the Shreveport area for a long time, so we're going to include the wrestlers who've worked in the Shreveport area, and went on to comic book movie fame.
