A few months back Doyle said he was in talks to return but I was just on Eliot Goldenthal's wikipedia page and it said he is scoring it. I know Wikipedia isn't reliable but it sounds random enough to be true.

I heard the same thing, Doyle was in talks to return (as well as to the new POTA franchise). I would trust Wikipedia at all right now.

now that would be interesting!
But still... it's just another marvel garbage and speaking of Doyle, I am FAR more interested in his takes on Jack Ryan franchise Kenneth Branagh is rebooting.

This is news to me. I find it odd since Goldenthal told me he wasn't into 'action movies' anymore. I've asked on his facebook page (not his own, but his PR team) if there's any truth to this.

The director of this film (Alan Taylor) had directed only three other films and Rachel Portman scored two of them. I would find it interesting if Portman didn't get the job.

But then again, Marvel has some weird policies (such as never shooting a film in 3-D and choosing to post-convert instead).

If not Portman, I could see BT getting considered. The originally attached director (Patty Jenkins) worked with BT on her previous film and him doing Thor 2 would have been interesting.

Would love to hear what Portman could do with such a film, though Goldenthal is certainly a good choice.

Would be so dissapointed if Doyle did not return. His themes for Thor are like another character in the film and would really be missed.

All these choices: Portman, Goldenthal, Doyle, sound great to me!

Is it possible to score a Thor movie where the main character's theme is on clarinet backed by chopping strings though?

Why would BT be considered for his connection to a director that left the project early in the game?

Personally... I do hope that Patrick Doyle returns. However, in the event Portman or Goldenthal would get the film... that would be great too. The potential list is pretty damn good.

Well, Alan Taylor directed six episodes of SEX AND THE CITY, and Aaron Zigman scored the two SEXY AND THE CITY features (which Taylor had nothing to do with), so I'd call that proof positive that Aaron Zigman will score THOR 2.

But wait... Alan Talyor also directed the MAD MEN pilot, and Jon Hamm was in that THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL remake from 2008, so that must mean that Tyler Bates will be adapting Elliot Goldenthal's previously written music for THOR 2, which is probably what the Wikipedia entry was referring to.

Unless, of course, Taylor decides to go for a smooth jazz sound for his version of THOR, in which case I'd put my money on MAD MEN composer David Carbonara.

Poor taste and judgment, as usual. Rachel Portman is the least suitable choice for this kind of film. She can only provide undernourished, meek, thin and watery background music, which she has proven on numerous occasions. How on earth would she be qualified to tackle a cartoon superhero adventure?

Not only is Goldenthal a better composer than Doyle, by about a zillion percent, but I trust it that he, unlike Doyle, wouldn't sell his soul to come up with a Zimmer factory-style score just to get a job.

Just a thought. Also, BT does have some connections Marvel's parent company Disney (scoring a few shorts for Pixar).

TV shows aren't the same as movies. A director doesn't get much say in their composer (that's the producer's job).

But seeing how Taylor's built a relationship with Portman, it makes her a strong choice.

Doyle's THOR is not a "Zimmer factory-style score".

From what I remember about the score to the first Thor, it's proof that Doyle hangs out with John Powell a bit too much. The Zimmer influence is very clear and a strong contender for Doyle's worst score.

I loved what Doyle did with Thor. I want him back but I'm not going to complain if Goldenthal gets it.

Doyle for me. No need to replace the composer of last years best score.
