The trailer, which debuted on March 14, received 268 million views on its first day, making it the second-most viewed trailer ever, behind only the first trailer for the movie. The first Endgame trailer received 289 million views when it was released on December 7, 2018. The trailer for Avengers: Infinity War holds the number 3 spot with 230 million views. Behind Infinity War are The Lion King and It, with 224.6 million and 197 million, respectively.
Marvel Studios made the announcement with a tweet that thanked fans for making Captain Marvel the world's number one movie for two weeks running and for viewing the Endgame trailer so many times. In the tweet, the studio included a gif of a scene from the Endgame trailer in which Captain Marvel meets Thor for the first time. Fortunately, Thor likes the newest Avenger.

Captain Marvel has already crossed $700 million at the worldwide box office. It's likely the film will break $1 billion sooner rather than later. However, projections for Endgame indicate that movie could earn more than $2 billion when it hits theaters later this year.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
