The brand-new trailer for Avengers: Endgame was unsurprisingly very popular. The video, which was released on Friday morning, become the “most-viewed trailer in history.” It picked up 289 million views in its first 24 hours across all channels.
That is well ahead of Avengers: Infinity War’s first trailer, which tallied 230 million views over its first day earlier this year. It’s yet another success for Disney, which owns Marvel, as the media giant’s new trailer Lion King picked up 224.6 million first-day views just recently.

The new Avengers trailer came after what fans thought was a long wait, even though Disney/Marvel never said when the trailer might arrive. The new trailer confirmed the movie’s name, Endgame, a title that makes a lot of sense given what is expected to happen after the dramatic, cliff-hanger ending of Infinity War.
The Avengers: Endgame trailer also of course raises a lot of questions, like what happened to Captain America’s beard, how much time has passed since Infinity War, how Scott Lang seemingly got out of the Quantum Realm, and more. Check out GameSpot’s rundown of all the big questions here.
