On Tuesday, Marvel pulled back the curtain on its first female-led superhero movie with the release of the first trailer for Captain Marvel, and if the amount of views it managed to rack up is any indication, it looks like the studio can expect another monster hit this coming March.

109 million views in 24 hours puts it ahead of the first trailers for Black Panther (89 million) and Captain America: Civil War (95 million), with only Avengers: Infinity War’s two trailers (230 million and 179 million) and Thor: Ragnarok’s first trailer (136 million), which is certainly an impressive feat given that Captain Marvel is a brand new franchise (albeit one that’s part of the established MCU, has the Marvel branding behind it, and is coming off the back of a major tease in the Infinity War post-credit stinger).

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
