Weren’t able to do any re-watch prep for Captain America: Civil War? No problem. Freelance editor Clark Zhu has got you covered. With an edit that feels like it came straight out of Marvel’s savvy marketing department, Zhu’s 5-minute MCU recap “Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Retrospective” (below) condenses all of the “need to know” elements into a compelling debrief.

Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6.
