Avengers: Endgame can boast some of the most astonishing records in the world of cinema. However, a film is on the way that could threaten its reign. We are, of course, referring to Spider-Man: No Way Home, which this week unleashed a full-on craze after releasing its first trailer. In fact, this trailer just smashed, and by a wide margin, one of Endgame’s biggest marks.
Spider-Man: No Way Home broke Avengers: Endgame’s record for first trailer views in the first 24 hours. That alone is a tremendous achievement, but the feat becomes even greater when we look at the difference between the two trailers. Endgame racked up 289 million views in the first day, while No Way Home boasts 355.5 million views worldwide.
If the above figures don’t surprise you, wait until you see the comparison with the previous Spider-Man film. The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer had more than twice as many views as Spider-Man: Far From Home (135 million) in the same period. Furthermore, No Way Home generated 4.5 million social media mentions, surpassing Avengers: Endgame’s 3.32 million.
The disparity is brutal and highlights the huge anticipation for the third instalment starring Tom Holland. A lot of the rumours surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home were confirmed after the first trailer. For example, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse will be a fundamental part of the narrative. In addition, villains from other universes such as Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) will appear.
Of course, there are still a lot of questions that will surely be answered after 17 December, when Marvel plans to release Spider-Man: No Way Home. Of course, Mickey’s company continues to keep an eye on the health situation, as the rise in the number of COVID-19 infections could cause a new setback in the schedule of several films. Sony, for example, is planning to delay Venom: Let There Be Carnage until 2022.
