Default Re: Watching Avengers or watching Phase One: which is the necessary action

That would be hard because, while I've seen Iron Man 1, I have no interest in watching 2 nor 3. I've heard mixed opinions of 2, and after looking it up (I can handle spoilers, BTW) I feel it's one of the movies to skip because I don't feel it did anything necessary or accomplished anything, and strongly feel that Iron Man 2, after Incredible Hulk, should've been a call back to an early Marvel story and instead be about Tony taking his first SHIELD mission and fighting the Hulk (maybe call it Iron Man vs. Hulk). As for 3; I did the same thing, I feel the same way, and think that if I want to see an adaptation of sorts to Extremis, I will watch the motion comic instead.

I also want to point out that even though I'm asking about seeing Avengers only, there is an interest in seeing some of the others: I've mentioned not wanting to see Iron Man 2, but I would like to see Incredible Hulk and Cap some day ("some day" lol I laugh at that statement), while I would have to watch Thor even though I'm not a fan of the character, and I don't really care for the sequel compared to, let's say, Cap: Winter Soldier.

I also want to point out something else that will get major groans from you guys: the first two movies, Iron Man 1 and Incredible Hulk; my brother bought those DVDs many years ago, and they are behind me as we speak. I saw Iron Man 1 back in Christmas 2012, and said "Hulk was next"; haven't seen that movie yet, and it's been 5 months and 9 days since I said that. ...yup

The only think I could say to explain the delay is that: maybe I didn't want to really force myself to watch these movies, otherwise I would've not enjoyed them and instead see them as "chores to watch". y'know?

I loved everything about the Incredible Hulk BUT the Hulk himself. See he looks exactly like a Liefield Hulk and I can't stand the artist. He drew Hulk with a waist that looked like even Wasp could break in two, the Mouth was too big and his Jaw was WAY too narrow. The TIH Hulk to ME looked too cute.
Don't get me wrong I loved the whole movie over Ang Lee's HULK but, I liked the LOOK of the Ang Lee Hulk over The Incredible Hulk's Hulk, and the Avengers Hulk is SPOT ON imo over all of them.

I'm a Thor fan through and through with Cap right behind. My Dad LOVED Captain America First Avenger and he's 84, and did have the Original comics back in WWII. I loved both films I can't choose one over the other unless you go by the DVD/Blu/ray Content of each film. Thor wins there.

Responsibility, Duty, Honor these are not
mere virtues to which we must aspire
they're every soldier every King.
