    Go Rupert! This guy literally went from almost nothing (stupid Sandler movies with one or two high profilers) to scoring huge blockbuster films over the course of a couple months. I’m excited to see what he has in store and if he uses Zimmer’s WW motif (literally the only good thing from that score).

    • Bernd-Helmut Heine says:

      Well, I would´ve chosen his brother Harry instead. But I agree, it´s a big opportunity for him (after “Legend of Tarzan” and “Hacksaw Ridge”), hopefully he´ll make the best out of it. At least no JXL this time…

      • Carlos says:

        As a former protegée of Zimmer, I think it’s safe to say that he’ll gonna use Wonder Woman’s theme from BvS, maybe blended with some material of his own.

        I didn’t like his Tarzan score that much, and, aside from it, I don’t know his job, but this guy seems talented, since he’s apparently everywhere these days, just like JXL last year.

  2. Jerry's Kid says:

    Agreed. Good for him! He does exceptional work and has more than paid his dues. Happy to see him flourishing!

    thank god. no Junkie XL

    While Marvel brings composers of the most diverse varieties and styles, DC brings the uninspired minions, patronized by Lazy Zimmer in person (not to mention the lack of talent)

    • Ds says:

      … and yet every single Marvel score is forgotten as soon as the movie ends, and its themes don’t even return in the next movie with the same characters. What’s the point of bringing “composers from the most diverse varieties and styles”… if the aim is to make them as bland and forgettable as possible?

      • KWU says:

        One theme has been consistent across the MCU and that’s the Avengers theme. It was brought back for Age of Ultron and Christophe Beck used a bit of it for Ant Man.

        • BB says:

          And what good hire several composers who do not have an own musical identity?

          • BB says:

            “… and yet every single Marvel score is forgotten as soon as the movie ends…”

            bla bla bla

            Only if it is for you! Thor themes, Ant-Man, Iron Man, Avengers and now Doctor Strange are forgettable? Oh, please! They are much, much, better than the crap that the RC does!
