The trailer for Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision is clearly a hit with Marvel fans, as it was reportedly more popular than the Avengers: Infinity War ad.
Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision has quickly become one of the most highly-anticipated upcoming projects from Marvel Studios thanks to its bizarre setting and eclectic group of characters pulled in from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the statistics from the impressive first trailer definitely back up the fans’ excitement for the series. A new report revealed by Deadline explained that the trailer has been more popular than the Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl ad.
The new trailer impressed fans with its unpredictable nature as well as first looks at Vision in a comic-accurate costume, Kathryn Hahn’s mysterious new character and even Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau. But in Deadline’s report from RelishMix, the trailer for the Elizabeth Olsen series has 36.1 million views on YouTube, but has 55.7 million views in total across a number of other social media platforms. The Avengers: Infinity War advert was watched 30.9 million times by fans. It’s impressive work to say this is a TV series rather than a theatrical release. Take a look at the statistics for the series below.
“Roaring at theatrical social media rates from the Emmy TV broadcast spot drop — WandaVision is seeing video counts across social platforms, in a full 24-hours, exceeding 55.7M views, predominantly on YouTube with over 36.1M views. Reposting of spots and reaction/reviews spots is flying at an earned viral rate of 63:1. Facebook video views are building at 4.9M plus 10.1M views on Instagram, plus TikTok and Twitter. Keep in mind, this growth is attributed to the TV spot from Sunday night, which is even more impressive as the momentum builds on social over the week.”

Here is the official synopsis for WandaVision:
Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that the series will lead into the feature film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney Plus in 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest news on WandaVision and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
