So far the so-called Marvel Cinematic Universe has included ten different movies set within it—making the Avengers: Age of Ultron's imminent release the eleventh film in the franchise. Chances are, unless you're a devoted fangirl or boy you haven't seen every one of these movies.
And even if you did, that doesn't mean you've read all the comic tie-ins, seen the TV series or DVD-only short films that flesh out the overarching narratives and back-and-forth intertextuality that goes on. Well, don't you worry because New York Magazine have got your back with their All the Marvel Movies in 7 Minutes video.
So instead of consuming hours upon hours of content in a variety of mediums, just watch this recap and you'll be in the perfect place to devour Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Also, if you wanted an A to Z of the Marvel comic book universe rapped in the style of Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics"—then you're in luck. Tribe One's superb "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe From A to Z" is just that.
