CAPTAIN MARVEL Enlists KRYPTON Composer Pinar Toprak To Score

Marvel Studios has enlisted Krypton composer Pinar Toprak to score Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's upcoming Captain Marvel, which means she will be the first female composer ever to score a Marvel movie.

For the first time in its history, Marvel Studios has enlisted a female composer to score one of their blockbuster films as Pinar Toprak has revealed, via Instagram, that she will score next year's Captain Marvel, which will be the twenty-first entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Toprak's past work includes Syfy's hit Superman prequel series, Krypton, and the popular video game Fortnite. She also contributed additional music for Zack Snyder's Justice League last year.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are helming the upcoming movie, which will be the first female-led Marvel film since 2005's Elektra, which is, of course, not apart of the MCU. Academy Award-winner Brie Larson is headlining with a supporting cast that features Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg.

Additionally, The Hollywood Reporter has shared a brief description of a recent scoring session they were fortunate enough to attend last month.

"Heat Vision attended Captain Marvel scoring session last month, and saw Toprak at work at Warner Brothers’ Eastwood Sound Stage. Vibrant strings were mixed with state of the art synths to create powerful action sequences. The compelling melodies evoked images of a fierce battle, and quickly retreated to softer, emotional notes for a more personal moment. Toprak conducted the entire scoring session, then raced over to a panel for her other superhero project, Krypton. No footage of Captain Marvel was shown during the session, which featured a number of musicians as well as mixer Alan Meyerson, known for his work on Hans Zimmer's superhero films such as The Dark Knight."

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
