The new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was viewed 179 million times in its first 24 hours, becoming the third-biggest trailer release in history, according to Disney and Marvel Studios. The Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU) has one of the largest fan followings of any franchise and is one of the hottest topics online at the time of this article. Connecting viewers to the expansive MCU will grow traffic, page views and viewer time on site.

By using the Internet Video Archive (IVA) Search and Discovery API endpoints for “tags” to find any movie or TV shows that have the words “MCU” or “Marvel Cinematic Universe” not only allows developers to connect these movies and shows, from the first Iron Man movie in 2008 to the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to be released in 2020, and the various TV shows like Jessica Jones but also to dynamically update when new shows and movies are added.

Knowing which titles are part of the MCU is only the beginning. Internet Video Archive (IVA) has all the data needed to enrich viewer experiences and satisfy their hunger for Marvel movie and TV shows. Leverage IVA’s award winning APIs to get programmatic access to all this and more.
