Carter Burwell Set To Score THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Carter Burwell Set To Score THOR: THE DARK WORLD

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 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?

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.

I ADORE Carter Burwell's works, true legend. Wasn't interested in the movie before, but now I want to see it, it has to be [frick]ing epic.

He did A Goofy Movie. That's enough for me.

hey cobb no need to be a phucktwat and ruin shit for people who aren't part of your imaginary "war". It's not my fault yer mom kicked you off the tit shit take that spoiler shit and shove it up your "loosened by daddy's friends " rectum you call an asshole.

There's a special place in Hell for people like you. It probably involves pineapples and not nearly enough lubricant.
DefcoN - 4/19/2013, 10:58 AM
Oh man... I hate when these things happen. I don't think I ever listened to any of Burwell's scores so I cannot jugde him, but I REALLY HOPE he keeps the more iconic Asgard and Thor's themes because that's what connects this movie with the first.
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 11:00 AM
I wish there was a teleportation time machine that could transport looser dipshits like yourself into famous global disasters whilst getting the innocent victims back to their my friend are ideal for the Hindenberg.

@ cobb you even suck at posting shit ...good luck with real life.

@Cobb - Good job! Keep it up. ;P
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 11:09 AM
and this is why this site needs an ignore button let the douchebags have their own "pissing" contest over studios that none, NONE of you are profiting from....Maybe, Just maybe...if you put as much effort into forming relationships in the real world, with real people, you wouldn't need to spew your pathetic bile on a comment section for an entertainment website.....good job on even making superheros not fun
BboiBlack - 4/19/2013, 11:10 AM
Thor is the only good score marvel has produced.
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 11:12 AM
cobb you know in your real world life's okay babe ; ) we know people like you in the real're quiet, mousy lil go ahead lil guy ...feel big here. The more I think about it you're a Corkey from "Life goes on" sortta way...although I hope you follow more in the footsteps of Chad Lowes character...but lets face need human contact for that to happen...Have fun being a loser Mr. Potato Tits

@Cobb - You pissed them off. Run!
TheFox - 4/19/2013, 11:13 AM
Well, crap. On one hand, I LOVED Patrick Doyle's score for the first movie... but on the other, Carter Burwell isn't all that bad a composer (I loved his score for The Hudsucker Proxy). So I guess we'll just have to wait and see if this is a good move or not...

(I just hope they keep Alan Silvestri as the composer when they do Avengers 2. That is MANDATORY.)

DCMarvelFreshman - 4/19/2013, 11:14 AM
@Cobb1995 Just so you know, I've been deleting all of your comments. Thanks for spoiling IM3 for me.
Franshu - 4/19/2013, 11:16 AM
He composed the music for A Knight's tale? I'm all in, then :P
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 11:18 AM
@Minatauro...good to see you're lil bitch true colors come out too. It's awesome to ruin shit for people! YAY ! What a kunt.
superotherside - 4/19/2013, 11:26 AM
Wow, loved his music on the first one. Can't wait for this one!
hartley07 - 4/19/2013, 11:27 AM
omg marvel needs to stick with the same composers. SUPERHEROES NEED THEME SONGS. Avengers would have been truly great if when each hero made their entrance they just played a little bit of their score. thats it! Stupid Silvestri used captains theme through the whole thing, but no one elses. It's like making the justice league, and when superman shows up, you get.... a bunch of whatever. Iron Man has no theme (ACDC doesnt count), Hulk has one, but it wasnt played in avengers, and now Thor probably will have his Asgard theme replaced.

HANS ZIMMER NAILED THE NEW SUPERMAN THEME. Same key as the old one, its got the driving percussion which reminds you of the old theme(which actually lines up in places with the old drum line when you sing it to speed), and the last 4 long notes before superman's take off are actually the last notes of the krypton theme.
Minotauro - 4/19/2013, 11:31 AM
@RioDoFio - What are you talking about you butt sore fruit. If you're going to be mad at anyone, then point the finger at the punks on the Imdb forums. This is were this shit is spreading.

@Marvelpsycho - It is hilarious, because you've done your bit of trolling often in the past. And you have the nerve to call me out? Please homer. And yes, I will be seeing Iron Man 3. ;)
DefcoN - 4/19/2013, 11:32 AM
It's time for Galactus to devour our little wise-ass friend, don't you think? I almost fell for it, I'm sorry if someone accidentally read it.
MrChuff - 4/19/2013, 11:36 AM
Shame... I liked Patrick Doyle's score for the first Thor movie and was looking forward to him building on the very clear themes he established.
His scores for Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Carlito's Way and Donnie Brasco are amongst my favourites.
MrChuff - 4/19/2013, 11:39 AM
No matter what you think of the movie.... this is lush.
NoAssemblyReqd - 4/19/2013, 11:49 AM
Argh. The inconsistency in music is one of my few annoyances with the MCU. So far only Captain America has had his theme repeated in a follow-up film (THE AVENGERS, albeit quoted very briefly).

I enjoy it when composers return to score sequels and create variations on their previous themes. But look at IRON MAN. He's got 4 different themes now, by 4 different composers.
NoAssemblyReqd - 4/19/2013, 11:51 AM
Yikes! Didn't see the comment, but if people are going to be posting spoilers on here, I may have to get off CBM for the next 2 weeks!
ATrueHero1987 - 4/19/2013, 11:53 AM
Someone tried to spoil IM3? Good thing I missed it. Why do jackasses try to spoil movies? I might need to stay away from CBM for a couple of weeks.
SageMode - 4/19/2013, 11:55 AM
I'm glad Doyle is not returning, his score for Thor IMO was the weakest of the Phase 2 films.

This is shaping up very nicely.

BTW you're on a roll DCMARVELFRESHMAN, keep up the good work.
SpoonWielder - 4/19/2013, 11:56 AM
@hartley07 @NoAssemblyReqd

Exactly! I've been upset about this for awhile! For a company who's main selling point is continuity, it's kind of screwy to change the composer with each movie.

I loved the first Iron Man score, it was just so original and perfect for the character. And then the sequel came out and it had WAY less heavy guitar in it. And didn't even have the same themes.

I'm all for having different composers for each hero, but stay consistent with the sequels!

I was also kind of upset that Alan Silverstri didn't include more themes from the other movies as well. I hope he returns too.
TheManFromMars - 4/19/2013, 11:56 AM
Never heard of this guy...

But, apparently, I've heard things from this guy...

SageMode - 4/19/2013, 12:05 PM
*Phase 1 I meant
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 12:18 PM
@Minatauro...really ..butthurt fruit? jesus man come back with something a lil more original...oh wait... nevermind're just another one of these "Studio White Knight " clones.....Keep it up Nancy're bitchassness is sorrta endearing in sad,sad,sad, pathetic way! Keep it up! Your beta male internet schtick is cute. ; )
SageMode - 4/19/2013, 12:30 PM
The DC Trollanites are getting pretty desperate now, aren't they? Oh wells can't blame them, MCU is setting ablaze. Deal with it.
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 12:36 PM
@Gusto..I'd still hit it.
DioFoRio - 4/19/2013, 12:43 PM
@Mr Marvel...don't ask....Apparently according to the cerebrally challenged minatauro..if it was spoiled on IMDB it's cool to spoil it here.
sharkman03191 - 4/19/2013, 1:10 PM
For people ragging on Burwell due to the Twilight films: his score was the ONLY good thing about those travestys.
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/19/2013, 1:47 PM
Now I don't even care what the article is, I'm just curious what did Cobb say to piss so many people off !
Jer3miah - 4/19/2013, 1:49 PM
Sucks. Patrick Doyle's score for Thor was just as amazing as Craig Armstrong's scrore for the Incredible Hulk.

I dunno who this woman is that is now tapped to score Thor's sequel, but I have a feeling it's going to suck (i.e. Avengers' score)

Marvel obviously dropped the ball on the Avenger's score, so now I'll be second-guessing their future choices for scores. Scores define how epic a movie feels. For them to be reckless about it.. *facepalm*
Ramiel - 4/19/2013, 2:07 PM
I sure am going to miss Doyle's score. I loved hearing his music whenever I watch Thor.
