Avengers: Endgame trailer breaks records with an amazing 289 million views in just 24 hours

The first Avengers: Endgame trailer hit the Internet on Friday morning, swiftly becoming the most-viewed movie trailer ever in just 24 hours.  

According to The Walt Disney Company, which owns Marvel Studios, the preview garnered a stunning 289 million views the first day.

It beat the previous record holder — Avengers: Infinity War — by more than 50 million views. 

For her: Speaking to a broken Iron Man helmet, Tony Stark starts to record a message to his fiance Pepper Potts as he says: ‘When I drift off I will dream about you, it’s always you’

‘To the greatest fans in the world, thank you for being there from the beginning until the Endgame and making this the most viewed trailer in history with 289 million views in 24 hours,’ the company tweeted on Saturday.   

The trailer’s success was hardly surprising as Infinity War ended on a cliff-hanger of epic proportions after Thanos made good on his promise to kill half of mankind, including the superheroes.  

And fans have been desperate for any news about the sequel since then.

Seemingly in reference to Doctor Strange, he added: ‘Just for the record being adrift in space was your promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds, food and water ran out four days ago.’

Speaking again to Miss Potts, he added: ‘Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning, that’ll be it. When I drift off I will dream about you, it’s always you.’

The title was then revealed for the film, but that wasn’t all as an extra clip saw the unexpected return of Ant-Man. 

Proving the franchise’s humorous approach to the script is still around, Scott says to a video: ‘Hi is anyone home, this is Scott Lang, we met a few years ago at the airport in Germany, and I got really big.’

Cap, not entirely believing his eyes, asks Black Widow: ‘Is this an old message?’ 

But she informs him: ‘That’s the front door.’

As Scott can be heard explaining: ‘Ant-man, Ant-man I know you know that. That’s me, can you buzz me in?’

Avengers: Endgame is due out on April 26. 

He's back, but how? But that wasn't all as the end saw the unexpected return of Ant-Man who asked Cap and Black Widow to let him in, despite last being seen in the Quantum Realm
