Default Re: Scores To Marvel Films: Which do you like the most?

To me it's just generic action music that we've heard over and over again with nothing groundbreaking. Hopefully these future Marvel (as well as DC's GL) movies will have groundbreaking music, but I know that's asking for too much. Therefore, won't happen especially the way the film scoring business is today. Pity.

To me, that's the Spider-man, X-men, Daredevil, FF, Blade and Hulk movie scores in a nutshell. Noise. Nothing memorable whatsoever in fact I'd be hard pressed to identify them if I just happened to hear them in passing. Now the IM score, perhaps I can recognize it better simply because I've seen that movie more times than all other superhero movies in history combined(and I've seen just about all of them). But the Punisher score still beats it for me, as do the Elfman Batman and Williams Superman scores even though I've seen those movies far less than Iron Man 1. But this is marvel scores so I didn't rank them and that's why I picked Punisher'04's score as the best.

2015 will not only see the MCU beat the HP franchise for the #1 WW spot but it will also see Marvel Studios pass Pixar in terms of WW grosses($8.585 billion). Marvel Studios/MCU avg. annual profit: $621m(there ain't none higher. HP was the closest runner up with $541m when it was active).
