It’s been a pretty good week for Marvel Studios; its latest superhero blockbuster Captain Marvel retained top spot at the box office, pushing its worldwide haul to $760 million while taking the MCU beyond $18 billion combined.
Captain Marvel is of course just the appetiser to next month’s main course, the hugely-anticipated Avengers: Endgame, and Marvel has announced that last week’s trailer generated a whopping 268 million views in its first 24 hours, making it the second-most watched trailer of all time in its first day.
Thank you to the greatest fans in the universe for making Marvel Studios' #CaptainMarvel the #1 movie in the world for two weeks in a row, and doing ‘whatever it takes’ to watch the #AvengersEndgame trailer 268 million times in 24 hours. pic.twitter.com/reSauLnnDA

Despite this huge number, the second Endgame trailer failed to break the record set by the first teaser back in December, with that trailer pulling in 289 million views. It does however mean that the Avengers franchise now holds the three top spots in terms of biggest trailer launches in history, with Avengers: Infinity War sitting in third place on 238 million.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Vin Diesel (Groot), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Evangeline Lilly (The Wasp), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One) and Frank Grillo (Crossbones), as well as Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolvervine) and Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why).
