Are there any Marvel trilogies with a single composer for the whole thing? Gesh!

AndyDursin:
This film already looks like Marvel's equivalent of the Schumacher Batman movies.


I suddenly got cold shivers. Does this mean the return of plastic nipples?

Little bit disappointed as I really like Horner's Amazing Spiderman (first score of his in probably a decade I took to) and would have liked to have seen it continue. Also liked the movie, to me lightyears better than any of the Raimi movies and felt much more like Spiderman than any of those did.

The second and (especially) third Raimi movies I didn't care for. Spidey's humor was evident in TASM, but the rest of the movie felt like it was taking itself too seriously. But the first Raimi one, IMO, totally nailed the spirit and tone of the Spidey comics, in a way the sequels and relaunch failed to. It's the only Spidey movie I thoroughly enjoy, and I feel one of the best comic book movies in the last decade or so since it's release.

YUCK! Another Zimmer mess coming. Horner's repeating himself ad infinitum and ad nauseam, but that's still better than a "composer" who delivers crap for least-discerning listeners at EVERY SINGLE turn.

That makes three rejected scores for Horner in a year. Cripes.

Horner never even wrote this one, so while he's been rejected, the score was not.

Horner was likely never even considered, given what happened on #1.


What happened then?

Zimmer certainly knows how to get a powerful mood going but I don't find his scores especially engaging as music.

The thought of him scoring the Spider-Man movie makes me less interested, not more.

My question too, what happened with Horner and TASM #1?

I admit I'm disappointed to see Horner off the project, I rather enjoyed his score for the movie. I certainly have no desire for it to go to Zimmer when there are so many other capable composers out there.

My God... How many superhero franchises could possibly be destroyed by Zimmer!!

He devastated Batman, he completely violated Superman... "Aa-Ee-Ii-Oo-Uu"?? Come On!! Not to mention his atrocities on every other possible current movie.

Couldn't somehow be approved a law forbidding this guy's so called music, so every other composer out there has at least a chance to do some work!!

About the film, don't you even dare to compare with Schumacher's Batman. The new take on Spider-Man is much more modern, realistic and faithful to the comics (Spider-Man is supposed to be goofy, and Elektro's look is accurate to Ultimate Spider-Man) than the cheesy Raimi trilogy (which tried to be like the comics, but they became melodramatic and changed lots of stuff). And they're doing the films with the chronological order of the comics, unlike Raimi.

This is easily the most hilarious and saddest attachment of self-worth and attempt to intellectualize value thats not actually there I've seen in ages.

He's probably 11 years old.

And someone else is "probably 11 years old". smile

If they temped Amazing Spiderman with Hostage, it's beyond me why they don't just go for Desplat in the first place. I'm having a Desplat retrospective just now, and I really think he can turn his hand to just about anything. Bond, post-Mendes, anyone?

It may be my taste showing but Desplat hasn't been fit with an action or fantasy film very well. Golden Compass and the Harry Potter scores were as stimulating as a prescription for validol.

P.S. Love your avatar BackToTheFutureFan! It's perfect. How excited are you for The Phantom Pain?

Can't wait! I knew Kojima couldn't stay away.

After Batman lost his gothic edge and Superman lost his sweeping glory, what is Spider-Man going to loose?

You said it, man. I just don't think action is his thing.

I was very, very pleased, that Desplat scored the two last Potter movies. The Deathly-Hollows scores have wonderful ORIGINAL themes, IMHO. This guy knows how to write for orchestra and how to use every part of it in a very creative way. I don't see the problem with his action-material. Perhaps someone could explain it to me...
I'm quite pleased, that no Media-Ventures-composer got the opportunity to score a Potter-movie.
