The Avengers Topples The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Record

On Wednesday we were finally granted the second trailer from Joss Whedon’s much anticipated superhero team-up, The Avengers, and in the past two days it’s taken the world by storm. In fact, the trailer received over 13.7 million views in its first day alone, propelling it to the most watched trailer in 24 hours. It toppled the previous record, which was the equally impressive 12.5 million views held by the second theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises.



I’m not one to usually take sides in this whole “Marvel vs. Nolan” fan argument, but I think it’s safe to say that The Avengers trailer was the better of the two, just by the sheer nerdgasmic weight of the witnessing the assembly of all those iconic characters.
