[QUOTE="CaptHayfever, post: 1592902, member: 25169"]^^I've already seen Jessica, actually, & you're right. :)
^Winter Soldier is legitimately one of the best films in the franchise.
These all work as standalone things (so far): Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor, First Avenger, Winter Soldier, Guardians, Ant-Man, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, & probably Doctor Strange.
Other essentials (so far): Avengers, Age of Ultron, & probably Civil War.
And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"[/QUOTE]
Saw Hulk. Got a friend who's got Thor and Avengers I could probably borrow those two off of. Got Netflix, so I guess I could watch DD and Jessica Jones (wasnt exactly on fire to watch either, but knowing Punisher plays a big part in the former makes that a sight more appealing). The rest...you know, whatever. None of them are on Netflix or Hulu, and they arent in the Redbox, so I guess I just see them if I see them. Streaming rentals and all.
Thank you, incidentally. I appreciate the recommendations.
(EDIT: I mean, I've wanted a good 'Punisher' adaptation literally for decades, and if the Daredevil show offers that where actual wide-release movies like 'The Punisher' and 'Punisher War Zone' have not...I'll take what I can get, man. (Although...you know, 'The Punisher' had a couple interesting ideas. Like, they kind of made a bad, trite, dumbed-down movie version of the "Welcome Back Frank" arc, but there were weird, interesting scenes. Like the bit where a hitman approaches Frank and plays him a song on his guitar before trying to kill him. That doesn't happen in the comics. It's weird. It's like something out of a Sergio Leone flick. It's too odd not to be somewhat appreciated.)
