In addition to racking up the views, one specific aspect of the trailer generated a lot of talk on Twitter—Tony Stark is stuck floating in space. While fans generally discussed their thoughts on the trailer on social media, they also started using Twitter to contact NASA, asking them to rescue Stark from his impending space doom. The tweets became so prevalent that NASA responded:
Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq

Maybe they’ll pick up a signal, and the whole MCU will be saved!
