    ainitcool news is saying that Price is no longer the composer, and that he left the project with Edgar Wright. Is that correct?

      Wouldn’t surprise me. Marvel treats it’s composers (and directors… and actors…) like sh*t. The movie will most likely be scored by Brian Tyler, who is basically Marvel’s loyal bitch by now. And by “scored by Tyler” I mean “scored by number of dudes borrowed from Hans Zimmer’s studio whose work will Tyler eventually take credit for”.
