Everyone's favorite web-slinging high schooler in Underoos helped push the second Captain America: Civil War trailer to nearly 100 million views in its first 24 hours. This is a new record for Marvel, but not for Disney. The third sequel in the Captain America series couldn't quite top last October's third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That behemoth garnered 112 million views in its first 24 hours. But Captain America: Civil War wasn't far behind.
The presence of Spider-Man, played by MCU newcomer Tom Holland, helped push this latest sneak peek at Cap 3 to such amazing heights. It was quite literally the 'Hey, Everyone' heard around the world. Disney confirms to EW that the Captain America: Civil War trailer raced to 94.7 million views within its first 24 hours on the internet. The Youtube count alone was at 22 million on Friday, just for the America version of the trailer.
This footage was quite popular around the rest of the globe, too. The UK Marvel Youtube account brought in 1.9 million views. And there are over 25 other foreign language versions of the trailer available to those in need of watching Peter Parker speak French, Spanish or Cantonese. The teaser also brought in north of 17 million views on Marvel's English-language Facebook page. And while Marvel's Twitter account doesn't have a view count, the trailer was shared on the social media platform over 15,000 times.
The Captain America: Civil War trailer far surpassed the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. It only managed to collect 34.3 million views during its first day online back in October 2014. And by comparison, the first Civil War trailer only pulled in 61 million views during its initial launch. It's obvious that fans have not yet grown tired of these superheroes. There is no fatigue setting in just yet. These comic book titans have been shared across 240,000 social media posts. Avengers 2 tallied only 81,000 during the same time frame. It's possible that this could be the biggest Marvel movie yet. That distinction is currently held by 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in just two and a half short months. The movie clocks in at 147 minutes. It will be the longest Marvel movie ever released. But that may be okay, as fans can't seem to get enough. How many times have you watched the trailer? If you missed it, you can watch all the action and excitement again here. Though, you have to wait until the very end to catch your first glimpse of that friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.
