Prepare to get excited. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has had the distinct pleasure of getting to see Captain America: Civil War and says “it’s one of the best Marvel movies ever.”

The writer-director revealed his early reactions during a recent live video Q&A on Facebook via Squareeyed“I saw Civil War and I think it’s incredible,” he said. “It’s one of the best Marvel movies ever, and I can’t believe what a wonderful job [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] did. And the cast. Oh my God, they’re so good. So it’s an amazing film and people are going to be really excited to see that come summertime.”

The director also praised the work of Tom Holland, the new Spider-Man making his MCU debut in Civil War. “I’m trying to think about what is cool to say or not. But I will say this one thing. Tom Holland is…off-the-charts awesome. Off. The. Charts. Awesome. Off the charts. Truly. Hand to my heart, he’s amazing.”

After directing The Winter Soldier for Marvel, the Russo brothers return as helmers of Civil Warbefore eventually tackling the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

The Civil War will commence in theaters on May 6. You can see Gunn’s full Q&A at his Facebook page.
