Fans have been buzzing about this moment from "Civil War's" latest TV spot.

Though it aired shortly before the game began, the new "Captain America: Civil War" TV spot managed to pull in more traffic than every other film trailer that ran during Super Bowl 50.

According to Deadline, the "Captain America" TV spot raked in 292M interactions across FB, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram over a 24-hour period. While this doesn't quite beat out its predecessor, "The Avengers," RelishMix calls the numbers "'significant' for a super-hero franchise."

"Deadpool," "The Jungle Book," "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" and "Kung Fu Panda 3" also appeared in the top ten of the night.
