Looks like that after his work with DC John Murphy is preparing to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" 3rd movie.

I wonder if that means that Murphy will replace Tyler Bates as a new collaborator of Gunn? Doubtful, as James choose Kevin Kiner and Clint Mansell as composers for his "Suicide Squad" spin-off "Peacemaker".

Not gonna lie, Murphy and DC or Marvel is that combination I thought cannot be possible, but now it's reality, and I'm more than happy about it!

I actually enjoyed Tyler Bates scores in both films. They were thematic and well done.

Curious as to why he's not coming back for the third installment.

Nothing against Murphy and I’ve never been a huge Tyler Bates fan… but I’ve liked his previous work with James Gunn and I’m a bit disappointed he won’t be finishing this trilogy with a unified musical sound.

A shame Bates won't be able to complete his trilogy.

A falling out between Tyler and Gunn?. Who knows. A pity, in any case, given that Gunn had been collaborating with Tyler since almost the beginning of his career as a filmmaker.


First he stopped working with Snyder.

And now this.

David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, Hobbs & Shaw) also moved on to a new composer for his next film.

Is Bates being cancelled? Or has he decided himself to focus on other stuff?

Not a big TYLER BATES Fan either and he is one of those guys along with Brian Tyler..BearMcCreary...etc. who are too much testosterone driven in their musical language for me ..lots of RAMTAMTAMTAM RAMRAMsmile
But I enjoy some of them and GALAXY OF HTE GUARDIANs and TMNT and some of McCrearys stuff as well ....
Never heard anything from this Murphy dude...have to check first.

Perhaps the ghost of the 300 debacle is back to torment him... and make him pay his dues.

If you've heard, "Adagio in D Minor", you're familiar with his work.. smile

Not a big fan of Tyler, typically, but absolutely loved the tone and several of the tracks on the GOTG scores are absolutely brilliant (Groot Spores, A Total Hasselhoff).

Hate to see him leave the franchise, but have been a fan of Murphy since "Kick-Ass".. looking forward to what he can bring to the table!

Well...just listened to ADAGIO IN D Minor...sorry this is one uninspired "Adagio" in my opinion...pretty meaningless and interchangeable....

He is the author of one of the most famous compositions in industry - "In The House - In A Heartbeat" from "28 Days Later" and "Adagio in D Minor" from "Sunshine". It's hard to count how many times these two tracks was used (and continue to be used) in any media or anywhere else, and how many compositions was inspired by these two pieces. Sometimes people even don't know a thing about composer but heard one of the tracks.

My favorite from him is the score for 28 Weeks Latter (sequel to 28 Days Latter), some great tracks on that one.

To me, he's deffo more of a band guitarist than a film composer.
His themes...melodies...chord progressions...whatever, are what I liken to a laid down track of a song.
Obviously, with technology and whatnot, he has certainly developed a knack for creating film scores that directors, producers and temp editors really like.
And yes, those two pieces are now seminal works in film scoring (or certainly trailer scoring) for the past two decades.
I think he's very close to me, in age and geography (he's a 56 year old Scouser, I think).
If only I'd have picked up a guitar in school, or shortly after...
