Tyler has written some wonderful orchestral music (some more thematic, and some with more electronics than others). Expendables 1 and 2, Alien vs Predator Requiem, Timeline, Dragonball Evolution, Children of Dune, and Partition to name a few. Tyler is cabable of writing a great super hero movie score, the question has to be did the producers and director allow him to do so. I am curios to find out.

I'm on board for Tyler. I think his style will suit Iron Man, pun intended. Now I'm just hoping Danny Elfman will be announced for Thor: The Dark World (even though there's zero evidence of this happening - I want Elfman to have a go at a Marvel Cinematic Universe film!).

Here's my dream list at any rate:
Thor: The Dark World (2013) – Danny Elfman
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) – Alan Silvestri
Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) – John Powell
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) – James Horner
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – John Ottman
The Avengers 2 (2015) – Alan Silvestri
Ant-Man (2015) – David Arnold
Fantastic Four (2015) – Michael Giacchino

That's the only thing that concerns me. Tyler is more than capable of writing awesome music, but did they let him? I already pre-ordered the score, and I'll post my reactions when I get it.

That looks like a fantastic list. I think the best chances of one of those happening is Ottman, because Singer is directing and I think I heard something about Ottman mentioning returning to the X-Men Universe. If so, he'd be the first composer to score to X-Men films.

Yeah, it's a high-flying dream list.

Here's what we're more likely to get:

Thor: The Dark World (2013) – Ramin Djawadi
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) – Henry Jackman
Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) – James Newton Howard (in Green Lantern "mode")
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) – Harry Gregson-Williams (in Origins: Wolverine "mode")
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – Henry Jackman
The Avengers 2 (2015) – Henry Jackman
Ant-Man (2015) – No Score, just era-chosen source songs
Fantastic Four (2015) – Theme by Hans Zimmer, Score by Lorne Balfe

It has been suggested that Henry Jackman already has the Captain America 2 gig, which is OK only if he's allowed to work in the style of his animated scores (I guess a better indication will be just how much orchestral freedom Brian Tyler has been given for Iron Man 3).

I too have read that John Ottman has already said he'll be on X-Men: DoFP, which is great news as I always wanted to hear his development of his X2 material. I can see James Horner returning for Spider-Man 2, but I imagine the ball is totally in his court on that one; I remember reading at the time of the original that it was a one-off for him and he had to be convinced then. I can also imagine Silvestri is already signed for Avengers 2, which would be a shame if he didn't keep his toe in the water with Captain America.

As for Giacchino, I'm really hoping his Disney connection gets him a gig on one of these movies - he needs to do another superhero score! I'm also hoping John Powell's return from his hiatus this year will have him hungry to do something different and Guardians of the Galaxy would be right up his alley (since it is going to be largely animated anyway!).

Anywho, just some thoughts from me.

The Avengers 2 (2015) – Henry Jackman
Ant-Man (2015) – No Score, just era-chosen source songs
Fantastic Four (2015) – Theme by Hans Zimmer, Score by Lorne Balfe



Well, Djawadi seems to be turning out better work in Game of Thrones Season 2. Jackman has written some great scores, but most folks don't seem to enjoy GI Joe Retaliation (which I haven't heard yet). JNH and HGW are both composers who can do great, but once again, it comes down to the feel the director wants. I think it was great getting Doyle and Silvestri in Phase 1, and if either of them return then I'll be pretty happy. What I really would like (but this is my dreaming here) is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets some awesome themes written for its characters by top-notch composers, which are then incorporated into other films by either the same composer or another composer adapting the themes. (For instance, Jackman BETTER keep Silvestri's Captain America theme!) A great theme becomes a part of a character, adapting and changing with the person as he/she goes through trials, and emerging stronger for it. OK, I'm done dreaming.

As for Giacchino, I'm really hoping his Disney connection gets him a gig on one of these movies - he needs to do another superhero score! I'm also hoping John Powell's return from his hiatus this year will have him hungry to do something different and Guardians of the Galaxy would be right up his alley (since it is going to be largely animated anyway!).

Agreed and agreed. These would be fantastic.

Brian should score more Marvel films!

If they let him write to his full potential. I'll reserve judgement until I hear his score - and the release date is only a month away now!

That cover is great. Simple and not over the top IE: A Good Day To Die Hard.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – Henry Jackman


Ottman has just been confirmed to do X-Men, which, being honest, is not surprising since that Singer is directing it.

Double post.

Ottman was confirmed pretty much at the moment Singer took over the project. I am suprised anyone would expect otherwise. It's not like John is directing another movie himself so he wouldn't be available to score next Singer project.

Need Doyle back on THOR, his music was a massive part of that movie's success.

The Amazing Spider-Man was so bad I gave my cd away.


Couldn't disagree more! The emotion that Horner added to the Amazing Spider-Man made the film work for me! Fantastic melodic super-hero score.

Looking forward to hearing Iron Man 3, I didn't like Djawadi's original (too many guitars and drums) and Debney's effort was too bombastic at times (although I did enjoy the nod to Jerry's Total Recall score). I hope Tyler can find some melody again (such as Timeline) rather than just going on auto-pilot with the percussion (such as Fast 5!)

The fact that he mentioned the score to be orchestral and thematic means that he did.

They just released the first clip



It features a glimpse of what the new iron man theme may sound like.
If that's true, then it is pretty similar to Crimson Tide's

There's some guitar sounds ala Battle Los Angeles. And the clip proofs that the CD has a different chronological order than the movie (the second cue is Attack at 10880 Malibu Point, and Tony says that address on the clip).

Total disc time are reveladed!

Brian Tyler of FB: I named the tracks. The album running time is 76 minutes full symphonic Marvel-y / Tony Stark-y adventure!

Brian Tyler about IM3 (from ComicBookMovie.com):

When Marvel & Shane Black approached me about scoring Iron Man 3, I was thrilled as a long-time fan of the series and super hero films in general. We all wanted this score to have a deeply thematic component with a strong melody. We felt that the story would lend itself best to go classic and use the orchestra as the main voice of the music, with horns & trumpets singing the new Iron Man theme in a strong way. I conducted the London Philharmonic at Abbey Road in order to give the score a sound that felt powerful enough to live up to its name. Shane Black was very supportive & collaborative in his vision for the film & the score, and Kevin Feige was also a kindred spirit in really reaching for something special. Both of them are incredible film score buffs, and we all spoke the same film music language, which made for an awesome experience. In the end we went for a score that echoed the classics of super hero film history with a few surprises like a wild 1960s style main title piece that was an absolute blast to record.
