So it’s looking like people might be a bit interested in the next Avengers film.
The trailer for superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron was released earlier this week on October 22, and within a day had already become the most popular thing Marvel Studios has ever put on the internet.
The trailer had 34.3 million global views within the first 24 hours, according to Entertainment Weekly – and that was after an early leak of the trailer saw Marvel forced to release it sooner than planned.
All previous records from Marvel were easily surpassed, with Iron Man 3 in second place with 23.14 million views in the same period, and the original Avengers trailer picking up 20.4 million. This year’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier had 22.8 million views and 23.5 million views respectively on their first days.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released on April 24 in the UK, and will see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) team up with other heroes to take on nasty robot Ultron (James Spader). It is written and directed by Joss Whedon.
If somehow you’re not one of the millions who’ve already seen it (or if you just want to see the Hulk punch Iron Man through a car again) you can see the record-breaking trailer below.
