Iron Man 2 Score
 
who thinks raimin djawadi will be back for the score? i've checked his imdb page and it doesent have him slated,but also on the complete casting list for iron man 2 it doesent appear to have a score composer.i love what he did for iron man, and if he doesn't come back i'll be a bit dissapointed. what's your input on djawadi returning,and his score to iron man?

I'd like him to return, but wasn't it confirmed already that someone else is doing the score?

I don't want any big names on this score...no Elfman, Zimmer, Williams, etc. Yet on the flip side I don't want it generic sounding either.

as much as i love wiliams scores, and i DO LOVE his scores...i dont think he could handle iron man...

I think they need a new composer.

Someone who can take some of the tunes and themes from the first movie and just give it a really big, epic, score.

djawadi's got talent. have you heard deception,mr.brooks or the blade : trinity promo score? those are great scores by djawadi himself.

I'd put my money on John Debney actually getting the job this time around.

I've seen Trinity and I wasn't impressed with the score. It wasn't very memorable, nor was Iron Man's.

Just saying, this is a big super hero movie. Give it some BIG music. Big, big, big.

Crazy talk. I felt Blade Trinity's score was one of the few redeeming qualities of that film.

yupyup.

Re: Iron Man 2 Score
 
Iron Man should have had a big, bombastic, orchestral score with an actual memorable theme. I'm confident that John Debney (if he does score it) will definitely deliver that. If anyone has doubts (or doesn't know who he is) listen to his Cutthroat Island score, his score for the video game LAIR (which is sadly no longer available on itunes), or Scorpion King. This guy was born to score action/adventure movies.

I would also like Zimmer to stay as far away from this as possible. We've heard enough of his repetitive, simplistic action music all over most of the blockbuster movies nowadays.

Give someone else a chance for once.

i do like debney,he's got great music scores...and i like zimmer.however i'd like to keep djawadi,or if he doesent do it and they hire debney,then at least keep his themes.and as much as i like zimmer's score,i have to agree.whilst the score was produced by djawadi/zimmer, i think zimmer should stick to bats.

John Powell would be great.

Djawadi's Blade:Trinity score was cool, but he collaborated with RZA on it. Perhaps that helped him out.

His Iron Man score was disappointing, IMHO. Completely forgettable.

Well, I thought the "theme" (or lack thereof IMHO) was one of the main problems of the score. For rock music, it wasn't too bad. Some good guitar licks in there, but as for a movie score...I don't think so.

For example, the scene when he escapes out of the cave and he emerges for the first time in the Mark I, as soon as he escapes out of the gigantic fireball, the "dun dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun, DUN DUN!" starts, I thought it was laughable. The music was completely inappropriate for the scene, it was supposed to show this heroic escape, then comes the BIG "theme," which was utterly simplistic and un-fitting.

I dunno maybe it's just me, but that's one example where the music was supposed to shine and for me it did nothing. It actually detracted me from the scene and was annoying.

The music actually sounds decent on CD, but in the movie it was very unfitting, and I'm sure as this movie is watched in years to come it will actually make the movie seem pretty dated and cartoony.

So anyways, Debney should get the job.

I loved Djawadi's IM score. So I'm hoping that he comes back for IM2.

Though I do hope that should he come back, he develops more a character-specific theme for Iron Man himself. I've always thought that the suit-up montif of 'Iron Man' from the soundtrack would serve as a good template.

I loved the metal-ish score. Who thinks Iron Man and hears classical music in the vein of Superman or whatnot? Honestly? I though the score fit the character and the film like a glove. I would like to have Djawadi back for IM2 or at least keep the same style.

Keep Djawadi.

Re: Iron Man 2 Score
 
i gotta agree with what daredevil 2003 said. i cant really hear something orchestral like spider-man's score in a movie like iron man. well just have to wait and see if djawadi comes back

Ditto. Though I think he'd be perfect for Cap or The Avengers.
