    I have no problem with this.

  2. Orzobimbo says:

    Great news!

  3. Tiago Rangel says:

    That’s sad. When Edgar was the director, he hired Steven Price to be the composer. After his Oscar-winner Gravity and Fury, I was really hoping to see what he was going to do on a super-hero blockbuster.

    And Beck… I don’t know, after his mediocre score for Edge of Tomorrow, I’m not sure if he is the right guy for an action film. I don’t know what to expect from his scores to Terminator and Ant-Man.

    • Brent says:

      Who knows, he may be hired for Suicide Squad since Ayer is directing that and collobrated with Price on FURY.

  4. Kurt says:

    Slight correction: story by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, not Joe Wright.

  5. Ds says:

    Well, it is pretty clear now.

    With Edgar Wright, this would probably have been a very original superhero movie (the choice of Steven Price as composer was really exciting).

    But Marvel don’t want that. They want bland, generic, easy movies that all look the same.

    • You haven’t even seen the thing yet. Wait until it actually comes out, huh?

      • Ds says:

        Huh, I didn’t criticize the movie at all. Just pointing out a general trend of Marvel studios.

        • Macejko says:

          Don’t apologize, Ds, Marvel movies are sh*t. Copy-and-paste, passion killing bullsh*t. Remember that scene in Spider-Man 2, when Doc Ock wakes up on the surgery table and murders the doctors? That scene represents everything Marvel will never, ever deliver, nor even attempt to. Too risky, and risk is bad for tha monaaayh…

          • Brent says:

            Spider-Man 2 has nothing to do with the MCU. That was a SONY film.

          • Macejko says:

            Yeah, I know. That’s why I brought it up. Because it was directed by someone with a vision, not by a Marvel slave.

    I’ve enjoyed Christophe Beck’s scores since I heard SEEKER: DARK IS RISING long ago. I collect all his material and it rarely disappoints. Even though he usually does scores with small orchestral synthesizer modern sounds (which I don’t really like) his recent real orchestral scores (Frozen, Edge of Tomorrow, Percy Jackson) all make me so happy. I love Paul Rudd, any new Marvel movie (except Captain America—the world loves him, I find him boring), and new Beck material so Im Super Excited For This news!
