Avengers defending Norwegians?
Before this team-up film, we learned to know that Norway had played a part in the past. As a Scandinavian myself, I just love it.
As a commercial point of view it's only logical that USA should be the center of attention in a movie such as Avengers. The big battle, the fight for our world, should take place there. To see New York being attacked yet another time is a price we have to pay for the film to become a safe success.
But we can't deny the coolness and how "exotic" it would have been if the superheroes would have gathered in the main street in a major or semi-major city in Norway: Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Drammen. The latter even have a nice surrounding, located by a river in a valley and mountains on opposite sides.
