Jordan Moreau Deadpool is slicing his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and the record books. The first trailer for “Deadpool and Wolverine,” which debuted Sunday during the Super Bowl, has broken the record for the most-viewed movie trailer within 24 hours with an astounding 365 million total views, per Disney.
The previous record holder was the trailer for fellow Marvel movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which had 355.5 million views in its first 24 hours back in 2021.
Deadpool had some help from this year’s Super Bowl, which ended up as the most-viewed telecast of all time and reached 123.7 million viewers.
Sunday night’s game had the highest number of people watching the same broadcast in the history of television — and it no doubt helped that superstar Taylor Swift was in attendance rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs and her boyfriend, Travis Kelce. “Deadpool and Wolverine” hits theaters on July 26 and marks the introduction of Ryan Reynolds‘ R-rated Merc With a Mouth into Disney’s family-friendly Marvel Cinematic Universe.Read more on variety.com
