Following in the footsteps of Patrick Doyle and Brian Tyler we have Mark Mothersbaugh. An interesting choice. Seems a good fit for Taika Waititi's sensibilities.

Suddenly, I give a toss about Marvel.

I was interested only because I like the director, I wasn't a real fan if the first 2 Thor films, but this is pretty cool news.

This is an interesting choice. One thing I will say about the Marvel films is they've certainly brought in a broad range of composers (Doyle, Craig Armstrong, Beck, Tyler, Debney), unlike their competitors who persist with one or two as permanent fixtures (apart from Suicide Squad).

I hope MM survives the studio review process, unlike Burwell.

...all of whom have been forced to ape the "Wall Of Sound" Zimmer approach.

I don't know that it's exactly a Zimmer approach, but I do agree, there's very little wiggle room for a composer's personality to shine through. There have been rare occasions, but in general, there's a sound they like. And it's working for them, so I guess they'll stick with it.

Nice to have a surprising choice of composer!

Remember when Carter Burwell was supposed to score Thor 2. We all know how that turned out.

So I wouldn't be surprised when in a few weeks or so Giacchino is announched as the replacement

Interesting choice.

Marvel's choice for directors has been interesting and surprising as well. I hope they finally got their guts in order to make inspired choices for composers as well. And find their own voice.

Speaking of Mark Mothersbaugh, I think I only have his music for the Lego movie. Can anybody recommend anything else?

His "Safe" score.

Cloudy With Chance of Meatballs and Pee Wee's Big Holiday are excellent!

I wouldn't say that Debney's IRON MAN 2 sounded anything like Zimmer. In fact, it played very much like a "Best of John Debney" score

Definitely SAFE. His score for ROCKY & BULLWINKLE was pretty good, too. There's RUSHMORE, of course, but that sound probably wouldn't pass muster in a Marvel movie. 21/22 JUMP STREET are good.

Just wow, with this choice.

Thanks guys! NP: Safe. Sounds good!

Very unusual choice! His score for The Lego Movie was very moving at times; his score for Pee-Wee's Big Holiday less so (though I haven't listened to the latter in a while). I hope he can produce distinctive yet appropriate music for the film.

(I wonder if he'll dare, as Brian Tyler did, to reference the motifs of other composers? Musical continuity is quite lacking in the Marvel films!)

Fingers crossed he will actually stay attached to the movie until it is released...
I wouldn't watch it even if I was paid to... but at least the score might be interesting for a change....

Looks like he is still scoring Thor: Ragnarok. I liked the first two scores from Doyle and Tyler, but I've always wanted to see Mothersbaugh do a dramatic film. He may surprise us with a really heroic score for a Marvel hero.

Note what he does at the 2.00 mark and then fully extends at about 3:30. This is for an animated movie, but it sounds pretty heroic to me. I always liked this CD.

His scores to the Jump St films are a blast. Can't wait to hear what he does with this!
