During a Facebook Live Q&A with fans, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn praised Captain America: Civil War, its directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and Spider-Man actor Tom Holland.

"I saw Civil War, and I think it's incredible," Gunn said in the video you can see below. "It's one of the best Marvel movies ever, and I can't believe what a wonderful job the Russo Brothers did, and the cast."

A few questions later, he was asked about Spider-Man, and while he said that he couldn't say much, he did enthuse about the actor.

"Tom Holland is off the charts awesome," Gunn said. "Off the charts. Truly. Hand to my heart, he's amazing."
