As you can see in the below statement from Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn, Tyler Bates will compose the score for Guardians of the Galaxy. It sounds as if the duo are approaching their collaboration in an extremely unique way, although that seems fitting for a movie which is shaping up to be Marvel's most original and unusual movie yet. While Bates has worked with Zack Snyder on each of his movies, his impressive resume also includes the likes of Super (a James Gunn movie), Killer Joe and Low Winter Sun. What do you guys think of this choice?

Great news!

@CherryBomb: I wouldn't say Watchmen's score was powerful. It was very good though. Love the movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy having unexpected cast members, an unexpected director and just an unexpected everything so far. It's uniqueness and knowing very little about it makes me more intrigued to see the trailers and the final product. Favorite cast member is definitely, Benicio del Toro
