For Marvel fans, the Avengers: Infinity War trailer was a colossal event, featuring — for the first time — the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy in one movie.

The monumental event has, unsurprisingly, broken records, becoming the most-watched trailer within a single day of release, wracking up more than 200 million views in 24 hours.

According to Marvel Studios, the Infinity War trailer has accumulated 230 million views across all forms of media.

That total defeats previous champion, this year’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It, which held the record with 197 million views within a day.

Of course, the Infinity War had slightly more star-draw, with Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), and Chris Pratt (Star Lord) all making appearances.

For those confused by the purple villain, Thanos (Josh Brolin) and what the Infinity Stones are, read our explainer here. Infinity War reaches cinemas 4 May 2018.
