Re: Iron Man 2 Score
I hope Favreau has enough clout to get Debney in this time -- Djawadi's score for IM was dreadful and completely generic. If Marvel insists on getting someone who's graduated from the Media Ventures/RC school of Zimmer-produced scores, then by all means get John freakin' Powell instead. The guy can do a lot more with electric guitar and synths than Djawadi's attempts -- he can by all means craft a metallic sound to the score without sacrificing any of the orchestral depth or memorable tunes.
But if Favreau gets his way this time, he should get Debney. There's no reason why he can't, Marvel should give him more leeway due to IM's huge success -- including the composer.
