The Marvel Cinematic Universe is at a crucial turning point right now. On one hand, the studio is preparing to release a number of big sequels, like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok. But Marvel is gearing up to debut plenty of solo movies, too, including November’s Doctor Strange and next summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And all of this is happening in the midst of the events of Captain America: Civil War, which saw the Avengers torn apart from the inside. Narratively, Marvel’s creative team has a lot to play with, from Hulk’s disappearance in Age of Ultron to Captain America’s decision to rescue Bucky. Not to mention the threat of Thanos perpetually looming.

In Captain America: Civil War, the culmination of the MCU came to a head when Captain America and Iron Man clashed over the Sokovia Accords, a set of documents that essentially said people with enhanced abilities would be controlled by the government; Cap was against it, while Iron Man was for it. If you saw the film you already know how this goes.

This Tuesday, the film is being released on Blu-ray, complete with plenty of fantastic extras. Marvel has released some of the content already, like the gag reel and the sneak peek at Doctor Strange, but there’s plenty more to keep viewers entertained, too. From audio commentary from directors Joe and Anthony Russo to a wonderful “making of” featurette, the extra content is well worth picking up the Blu-ray.

If anything, viewers should get a kick out of the “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” behind-the-scenes, which explores how Marvel chose the team and what it was like to introduce Black Panther and Civil War to the MCU; incidentally, both characters will star in their own solo films, beginning with Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, 2017.

Some of the other extras on the home release includes an exploration of the characters of Captain America and Iron Man, from their first appearances in the MCU, to their epic showdown in Civil War.
