What's The Song In The Marvels' Teaser Trailer?

The Phase Five film "The Marvels" has debuted a fun-filled new trailer that has fans buzzing for a number of reasons, and certain viewers that enjoyed the preview for the 33rd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be wondering what song can be heard in the background of all the pulse-pounding fun going on in the teaser.

After the events of "Captain Marvel," "WandaVision," and "Ms. Marvel," the time for the titular team to unite has finally arrived, but unfortunately, it's under less than stellar circumstances. The preview reveals the three heroes have a problem switching places with one another. To figure to the bottom of the conundrum, they will have to work together, as well as leave the planet. It appears their investigation will take them to the far corners of the galaxy, taking on an assortment of intergalactic foes along the way, making the song that was chosen not only put people in the right mindset for what's to come but also properly help launch "The Marvels" into the MCU even more fitting. 

Out of all the choices available, the selected tune heard in the trailer is "Intergalactic" by the Beastie Boys. While older Marvel fans most assuredly recognize that bit of music history, newer fans have no idea how powerful that song was when it landed.

Intergalactic was an out-of-this-world hit

Ushering in the era of "The Marvels" with the Beastie Boys track was a great decision, mostly because the song was such a big deal for the '90s, fans, and the group itself. Not only did the song top the charts in the US and UK, but I also secured the group several accolades along the way. In 1999 the song earned the group the Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group Grammy and Best Hip-Hop Video from the MTV Video Music Awards. The video is arguably just as legendary as the track, featuring the Beastie Boys dressed in Japanese construction uniforms running the streets while a giant monster fights a giant robot. The style is very similar to classic Godzilla cinema, with Complex praising its depiction of such material by saying, "We get the feeling Godzilla creator Tomoyuki Tanaka, who passed the year before the 'Intergalactic' single was released, would be proud." In addition to the acclaim, The video has over 80 million views on YouTube.

There is no denying the song heard in the trailer worked out well for the Beastie Boys when it arrived, and by the looks of the action-packed preview, "The Marvels" will be another trio whose success goes Intergalactic.
