NEW YORK: The trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has surpassed the mark set by Avengers: Endgame, Marvel’s most successful film to date. The first official teaser trailer for the new Spider-Man film was viewed over 355.5 million times globally in the first 24 hours after its release earlier this week, according to Sony Pictures.
Just as the first preview trailer for Avengers: Endgame was released in December 2018, it had 289 million views in the very same time span. This demonstrates that interest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow with each new instalment.
Finally, only the day before the official premiere of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, a low-grade incomplete VFX copy surfaced online. That would have added to the excitement much more. All of this has helped Sony Pictures reach the top of the 24-hour trailer statistics, though it’s unlikely that it will surpass Endgame’s box office record.
The trade sources revealed last year that Spider-Man: No Way Home would feature villains from previous Spider-Man films, such as Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus. Soon after, Molina verified his return.
Adding in the speculations that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, the final two live-action Spider-Man actors, will be in the film, which has fueled huge fan enthusiasm and curiosity, although everybody involved strongly denying their appearance. With the multiverse finally released in the wake of Loki, the Spider-Man fanbase began demanding for a Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
Given the COVID-19 issues, however suppose Sony will be pleased if Spider-Man: No Way Home can match the $1.132 billion gross of its forerunner, Spider-Man: Far From Home – after all, it is Sony’s biggest theatrical release of the all times. During the pandemic, only F9 and China’s Hi, Mom came close to crossing the billion-dollar mark.
