Marvel Super Heroes Lead Google Search in 2019
In a look back at the year’s most searched trends, Google reveals the power of heroes in the real world and in stories.
Recently Google revealed its most searched trends in 2019, and it should come as no surprise that Marvel’s Super Heroes led the way – and in admirable company. Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, and Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel all dominated Google at the time of the movies’ releases, and it was part of a year that had millions of people seeking out heroes both fictional and real.
According to Google, “’I love you 3000’ was a global breakout search on love this year” after the release of Avengers: Endgame, and “Iron Man was the most searched Avenger globally on the day of the movie’s release on April 26, 2019.”
A month earlier, Captain Marvel was on the minds of millions around the world. Google said the character of Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson in the movie, was “globally searched five times more than Captain America in March.”
But while Google gave recognition to the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the overarching theme of its most searched terms were about real-life heroes: soldiers returning from war, volunteers during Hurricane Dorian, athletes who inspired fans and supported each other in the face of competition, mothers, fathers, and pizza makers – heroes of all kinds were on the minds of curious internet users throughout the year.
