Default Re: What people DIDN'T like from The Avenger ........Spoilers - Part 2

One thing I disliked was a geographical error: When Bruce's gamma signature scanner displayed the coordinates where the Tesseract was located, the longitude and latitude were wrong. Stark Tower's coordinates are 40°45′12″N 73°58′36″W (those of the MetLife Building in Midtown Manhattan); the coordinates on Banner's screen were 45°66.12'N/76°87.32'W, which in the real world is somewhere outside Ottawa, Canada. It's a tiny goof but it bothers me every time I see it.

(If that's not picking a nit I don't know what is.)

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
