Captain America: Civil War Trailer

Marvel has let it be known that the recent Captain America: Civil War trailer has shattered the world record for most views in a 24-hour time period, which was previously held by The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

While the official info doesn't specifically state the sources of the viewings, we are guessing not only YouTube, but also Facebook and various other social media, sites and video players. 

Marvel also confirms the Captain America: Civil War trailer will be attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The first trailer for Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" debuted online to a record-shattering 61M global views in its first 24 hours!

In theaters May 6, 2016, the third installment in the Captain America franchise was launched by a surprise appearance by Captain America himself, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" last Tuesday, and immediately debuted online globally following its first look on air, along with three epic posters for the film. 

This debut trailer for "Captain America: Civil War" almost doubled the previous record, held by the first trailer for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" – which debuted to a then record-breaking 34 million views in 2014. 

Audiences will also soon be able to see the new "Captain America: Civil War" trailer on the big screen on "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
