Carter Burwell Set To Score THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Marvel officials have confirmed the first visuals from Thor: The Dark World will be released next week, on Tuesday, April 23rd, ready to run theatrically with the international release of Iron Man 3. Holding us over until then, Disney recently released the first teaser poster and it reveals what’s been a mystery for quite some time: who will score the Alan Taylor-directed sequel? The composer of the original 2011 Thor film, Patrick Doyle, was said to be in early talks to return, but it appears that veteran Carter Burwell has been tapped to score the film, which is the second “Phase Two” expansion of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe! Beyond the first Twilight film and two sequels, Carter Burwell has composed the scores for True Grit, Fargo, Where the Wild Things Are, and No Country for Old Men. Thor: The Dark World would be Burwell’s first superhero flick, but what do you think?
Hot off the heels of the Marvel sequel’s first poster reveal, official word is out that Thor composer Patrick Doyle is NOT returning to score The Dark World, but rather Carter Burwell. Check it out!
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.
