While Avengers: Endgame has yet to be released in theaters, it is already leaving its mark by outpacing its predecessor in one key area: trailer views.
As of this writing, Avengers: Infinity War's second trailer, released in March 2018, has racked up an impressive view count of 93,131,527. The first trailer for Endgame, however, has it beat. Posted to YouTube on December 7, 2018, that trailer now sits at 93,170,277 views and counting. Of course, they're both a far cry from the first trailer for Infinity War, which currently sits at 222,953,029 views, though that was released in November 2017, so it has had a fairly major head start.
Trailer views are one metric used to indicate a level of interest as a film approaches its release date, and analysts are already predicting that Endgame could be on pace to top $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales. After seeing significant box office success with Captain Marvel upon its release last month, and with highly anticipated films including Spider-Man: Far From Home scheduled to drop later this year, Marvel's business is brisk and shows no sign of slowing down.
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.
