‘Black Panther 2’ teaser trailer tops 170 million views in 24 hours
More than 172 million views in just 24 hours is the heady score achieved by the first teaser for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Variety reports, quoting a figure confirmed by a source close to Marvel.
Unsurprisingly, the teaser for this second movie in the superhero franchise out-performed the original “Black Panther” movie teaser, which scored 88 million views in 2017.
The video was unveiled on Sunday, July 24 at the San Diego Comic-Con event. And the franchise makes an emotional return, as director Ryan Coogler had to navigate rethinking the sequel following the death of Chadwick Boseman, star of the first movie, in late August 2020.
The “Black Panther” hype has also spilled over onto social media. On Twitter, “Black Panther” and the hashtag #WakandaForever have reached the top trends on the platform. On TikTok, the #WakandaForever keyword already has 1.3 billion views.
With more than 172 million views in 24 hours, the first teaser for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is now among the best-performing trailer launches in the Marvel universe, albeit without taking first place, still held by “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and its 355.5 million views.
The “Avengers” movies also performed well, since the teaser for “Avengers: Endgame” scored 289 million views, while the final trailer earned 268 million. Variety recalls that the teaser for “Avengers: Infinity War” achieved 230 million views, while its final trailer posted 179 million. Recently released in theaters, the trailer for “Thor: Love and Thunder” reached 209 million views. DC/JB
