300 And WATCHMEN Composer Tyler Bates To Score GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

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?

Awesome news. Love his work

Love Bates. Even more excited now.

Watchmen had an amazing score. Very powerful.
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

good to hear


GOTG is going to be awesome

Everybody involved in this seems really happy to do be a part of GOTG. Can't wait.
highflyer - 8/21/2013, 12:18 PM
And I like the way they'll be playing the music while filming.
TheBeard - 8/21/2013, 12:19 PM
Nice

Mr Bates is a wonderful composer. He'll blow us all, away.
BritishMonkey - 8/21/2013, 12:23 PM
Nice, that's how you do it.
ezio619 - 8/21/2013, 12:26 PM
cool, love that they play the music for the scenes on set so the cast can match the music when they are shooting, thats really unique and interesting...exactly like the film, i hope veryone gets their own theme,Star lord has his own theme, Groot, Drax , Gamora and of course ROCKET have their own theme

He can pull it off

Everything seems to be falling into place on this movie
I'm starting to anticipate this film as much as I was looking forward to the Matrix sequel and Star Wars prequels and that could be dangerous
WhiteBolt - 8/21/2013, 12:36 PM
Awesome! Well, they did work together in Slither and Super.

I love the way Gunn is taking this seriously and is paying attention to detail. WB needs to get their shit together.

This will be an epic movie plus it will have an amazing soundtrack. I wouldn't be surprised if this movie ends up being better then the Avengers. Comics + SciFi = Gold. Plus if Justice League Dark gets made we should see a Nightstalkers movie.
DefcoN - 8/21/2013, 1:03 PM
Marvel and Gunn know we are all desperate to find out who will voice Rocket Raccoon. Seems to me they're saving the best piece of news for the last, damn them!
Amazing512 - 8/21/2013, 1:06 PM
Perfect composer. I just love how passionate everybody seems about this movie. I got a pretty good feeling about this one.
supermarioworldE - 8/21/2013, 1:09 PM
One of the most generic composers in the business.
IM53 - 8/21/2013, 1:13 PM
Sage nice
NovaCorpsFan - 8/21/2013, 1:16 PM
Awesome.
That's really cool that he plays the score as they shoot a scene.
This is by far my most anticipated movie since birth. I'm more hyped for this than I was for the Avengers.
Minato - 8/21/2013, 1:17 PM
My third most anticipated movie of my life and I seen the first 2 7x each in theaters.

1. Avengers
2. The Dark Knight
3. Guardians of the muthaf**kin Galaxy

Don’t you ever get tired of hating??? It seems exhausting.

@BlackJack10

I think it's "The Beginning is the End is the Beginning". Smashing Pumpkins indeed.
MisterNiceGuy - 8/21/2013, 1:33 PM
you know you're excited for a movie when news about the composer gives you a quarter chub
JoJo1982 - 8/21/2013, 3:02 PM
Dude the movie is still filming!!!
There's really no advertising yet for the general audience so be patient. We'll find out by the start of next summer on who wants to see this movie.
But for right now fanboys wanna see this movie bad so that's a good start
poop23 - 8/21/2013, 3:05 PM
Glad to hear. The watchmen score was pretty awesome
Reviewscrub72 - 8/21/2013, 3:07 PM
makes sense cause he worked with james gunn before on super
80sFace - 8/21/2013, 3:11 PM
@Gusto and anyone else who hasn't read the Abnett/Lanning (sp?) GotG 2008 run...it's really %*#@! good. Highly recommend if you get your hands on them.

..best thing for losers like trollem, I mean Jollem, & other Debbie-douches is ignore them. I wish nothing but good things for DC films & can't wait for Flash, WW, etc., but trolls are bitter & have nothing else better to do -- literally, since they're not getting ANY FILMS for a few years -- than troll Marvel articles. Deal with it & hope DC films rock when they eventually, at some time, in the future, within our lifetimes, come out. Losers.

this movie is sounding better with each bit of news.

No problem bro.
SageMode - 8/21/2013, 3:29 PM
Everything about this movie news wise just makes GOTG sounds increasing promising. The casual chemistry the cast has, the awesome low-res trailer, and Tyler Bates as a composer....if/when this movie becomes a huge hit, I'd like to see Adam Warlock, Jack Flag, and Mantis in the sequel (if they make it).
rockerdude22 - 8/21/2013, 4:09 PM
Nice! This movie just sounds better and better!
StarkReactor - 8/21/2013, 5:34 PM
this guy also does the theme to Californication...really admire his work, he adds a lot of guitar work into his orchestral compositions. which will be PERFECT for Guardians.
