The latest promo spot to be found online for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ comes in the form of a 30-second TV spot-style teaser, with an interesting choice of music played in the background. When you watch the new teaser, you will hear a slightly edited version of the song “sweet dreams” being played to support the promo.
If you are a fan of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver from the X-Men films back when 20th Century Fox was at the helm, then you will most likely remember this song being used in the iconic X-Men: Apocalypse scene. The scene where Peters’ Quicksilver saves the majority of the X-Men from harm’s way – while listening to “sweet dreams”.
New Ant-Man Quantumania Promo
You can watch the promo below via our official YouTube channel, plus our full breakdown and thoughts on the choice behind the music – it is a good song, but still, a funny choice considering its history with Marvel.
Whether or not the choice behind the song was intentionally placed due to its X-Men connection, it is still a funny nod nonetheless – especially when you take Avengers: Secret Wars into account.
Despite the film being more focused on Ant-Man and Kang, the plot itself is only adding to the prelude for the future Avengers sequel. Secret Wars is a massively successful storyline from Marvel Comics, similar to the Infinity War run, hence why it is also getting its own adaptation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
One major aspect to note is that the X-Men and the Avengers actually meet in the Secret Wars storyline, which is what makes this new promo a possible reference to this fact. Could the Disney marketing team be trying to slyly point this out via a musical easter egg, or is it simply just because of how catchy it is?
Evan Peters has already joined the MCU, technically, playing a version of Quicksilver that was revealed to not be Quicksilver at all – or at least that’s what we are meant to believe anyway. Nevertheless, as possible as it is that this is just a wild coincidence, we will still be getting a live-action X-Men and Avengers team-up one day in the MCU.
UPDATE 19th January 2023
We have been told that this promo spot for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is possibly just a fan edit, hence why it is classed as “unreleased” – however, the points made in this article are still valid.
