The American Federation of Musicians staged protests at two locations in Los Angeles on Tuesday to protest the use of overseas musicians for the scores of Marvel motion pictures. Local 47 picketed the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, where the world premiere of Marvel's Iron Man 3 will take place tonight (Wednesday), and at St. Vincent Medical Center, the site of a location shoot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, due to be released next year. Recording musicians are upset that rather than employ local musicians, Marvel Entertainment pockets millions of tax dollars from U.S. tax credits meant to keep work in the United States and instead hires foreign musicians on the cheap,'' the union said in a statement. Neither Marvel nor Disney, which owns Marvel, has commented on the protests.
