The MCU is dead, they say. Apparently not, as when you add a dash of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool and a return of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine then things go large. The release of the first trailer for Marvel Studios’ Deadpool & Wolverine landed during the Super Bowl and the numbers are now in. Records were smashed.

In its first 24 hours after airing during that football game, the trailer was seen by 365 million people online. This makes it the most-viewed trailer of all time. It is 10 million views ahead of what was in second place, It’s also an MCU entry – Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The third and fourth most viewed? The teaser and then the full trailer for Avengers Endgame. These grabbed 289 million and 268 million respectively on their first day.


The rest of the top ten is rounded out by Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Avengers Infinity War, The Lion King, Thor: Love and Thunder, and IT. This just goes to show that what the general public is engaging with out there is frequently not what we would think it is, or maybe wish it to be. The world of the normos is a strange and troubling place.

Deadpool & Wolverine stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, Emma Corrin, Matthew Macfadyen, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Rob Delaney, Stefan Kapicic, Karan Soni, and Shioli Kutsuna. It features Deadpool having to deal with the Time Variance Authority, the multi-verse enforcement organization at the center of Loki. This will bring Deadpool and several other Fox characters into the MCU.

It will officially be the MCUs first R-rated movie. Remember kids, the first two Deadpool movies generated multiple complaints from idiot parents who hadn’t done their research and headed to the movies with their darling offspring. They were shocked to have taken their children to see a movie that involved dismemberment, pegging, and averages more than 100 F-bombs per movie.


It is fair to say that the MCU will never be the same again.

Deadpool & Wolverine is the only MCU movie this year, and it opens in cinemas on July 26th.
