It is that.

If you want to drive an Aventador or Gallardo on a racetrack, you can do so here:

BTW, the pics I posted was of the Veneno, their new top-of-the-line vehicle.

Here is the Lambo stable:

Got around watching Captain America 2 today, loved it, I really enjoyed it. There is only one issue that I had:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
When Nick Fury "died" you would think iron man, banner and even the hawk will be present. I mean he's the core between all those guys.

Apart from that I'm looking forward to the next instalment.

I be of the moments in the film you just have to let go. Fortunately they were few enough not to spoil my overall enjoyment of the film either.

It would probably have a cost a ton to bring everyone back for just a scene or 2.

It didn't exactly spoil my overall enjoyment of the film, it would of been to cool if they did make an appearance smile.gif

I'm not so sure I agree with this. First off, as it pertains to the events during..., while a team was assembled (The Avengers) and worked together for a unified purpose, I don't know that there is total buy in to the "cause". Not for Stark and Banner anyway. Hawk I think would be an exception but he may not have been in a place to be notified as quickly with readily accessible transport because he may have been on a mission on the other side of the world. Cap and Widow were there because they were directly involved in that particular event. And with the message to not trust anyone, they may have opted to lay low to see how things shake out. If nothing else, Stark and Banner could continue doing their thing on their own. In terms of "the ending"...I think they would have been informed of the reality; therefore, would have had no reason to come.

I would add that continuous cameos in solo films would diminish the impact and enjoyement of the Avengers movies, and would also get in the way of the the main character. If we go to a Capt. America film eagerly waiting for Iron Man to show up, it's unfair for Capt. imo. Let them star in their respective movies and reserve the grand finale for the Avengers... smile.gif

Agreed. Even though it still seems like an obvious thing missing (their presence). I'm sure this discussion came up when planning any Marvel stuff post Avengers.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

Good grief...it's just not how comics work for the most part. Fill in a reasonable story for the absence of other characters or not but just accept that this is how it's been for longer than most of us have been alive.

This will answer a few of the crossover questions that some have.

Precisely. Yes these characters are connected now and using real world logic, you'd expect them to lend each other helping hands. But in terms of how that would play out in the movies, it will 1) detract from the main character and 2) the novelty will eventually wear off, making the main Avengers film a bit less special in the process.

For those having a hard time accepting it, just apply the same suspension of disbelief you use to accept a 9 foot green monster and a thunder god from another realm onscreen. wink.gif

Too many systems and games....not enough time or money!
