    This is gonna be awesome

  2. David says:

    I totally didn’t expected it. But he’s perfect, he’ll keep the same style of the two previous scores, but with his own sound.

  3. Machionic says:

    As soon as he “liked” Iron Man page on Facebook I knew something is going on.

    I don’t like the idea of changing main themes in every movie, that’s simply annoying, but as a huge Tyler fan can’t really complain either.

    • ASFan says:

      Iron Man hasn’t had much of a real theme yet. So Tyler can succeed where the others have failed.

      • Macejko says:

        You are wrong. Ramin Djawadi composed a great theme.

        • David says:

          Debney wrote a theme (a homage to Goldsmith’s Total Recall), though Marvel didn’t let him use it in the movie (but it’s in the CD).

    this should be good, loved his scores for Final Destination 5 and Fast 5

  5. BrianT-Fan says:

    i’m not a huge fan of IronMan franchise but having Brian Tyler on board for the music department makes me interested with how it would turned out. I like Dwadi’s other works but his work on IM is forgettable. J. Debney made a good score but is hardly heard being overpowered with all those sfx and his theme didn’t even make it in the film and that’s a shame because it could have been good. i have faith in Mr. Tyler’s works and that i’m excited to hear.

    • Machionic says:

      Agree with the last sentence. Score was mixed very low.

  6. BrianT-Fan says:

    and here i was kinda hoping Brian Tyler would be the next guy to make the score for Captain America 2 should Alan Silvestri moved on with other projects but with him (Tyler) scoring IM i think i’m curious now to see the film on DVD.

  7. Great news. I can’t wait to hear it.

  8. Klee says:

    Changing the score of certain theme type movies is sometimes needed to switch things up a bit…, in an effort to prevent the audience from predicting or expecting what is about to occur. As well as not make the audience bored with the same old thing.
