The release of Marvel's newest installment, "Avengers: Age of Ultron," is right around the corner. Unfortunately, for those not caught up on the latest in the Marvel universe, this news comes with a pretty hefty chore: You'll have to slog through upwards of 10 movies before you have any damn idea what's going on in "Age of Ultron," a film-going experience which, critics have warned, will greatly hinge on precursory MCU knowledge. As your back-up option? Watch this video, expertly crafted by the folks over at Vulture, which wrangles everything you need to know about Marvel in order to walk into the theater May 1 and not feel dizzy with confusion. It only demands 7 minutes of your time.
