The hype is f—ing real. Spider-Man finally swung his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe yesterday and pushed the second trailer for the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War to nearly 100 million views across various platforms according to EW‘s sources. For comparison, these numbers surpass the then-record 34.3 million views that the first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron racked up in it’s first 24 hours in October of 2014. Additionally worth nothing is that the trailer also scored 240,000 posts across social media where as Age Of Ultron landed only 81,000 during the same time frame.

The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
