Everyone is talking about the trailer for Marvel's upcoming epic team-up flick "Avengers: Infinity War," which dropped on Wednesday and instantly ignited plenty of fan fervor -- both positive and negative.

Marvel announced the achievement on Twitter, revealing that the clip had been viewed more than 230 million times since its debut. That easily bested the previous 24-hour champion, Stephen King horror flick "It," which scared up 197 million views in its first day of release earlier this year.

There's plenty of Marvel's signature wit, with a hefty dose of some darker elements, too.

The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment. Read More
