Default Re: Iron Man 2 Score

Debney himself confirms that he's going to score Iron Man 2 (or is close to getting the deal) in an audio interview posted on Filmmusicsite.com today, check out the link here. Click play and fast-forward to 32:22, that's when Debney talks about it.

He says he'll probably compose the score from scratch, but is quick to say that he liked Djawadi's score in the first film.

Eh whatever. Constantly annoyed with these movies always changing hands with composers and there never being any big consistent themes.

See Hellboy and Hellboy 2.

See the X-men trilogy.

Djawadi, just because this series needs continuity some how.

Uh, Djawadi's score wasn't great anyway -- I could not remember a theme or anything else in Iron Man. And Favreau usually collaborates with Debney on all of his other pics anyway (Zathura, Elf), so Debney's likely to score Iron Man 3 and The Avengers if Favreau directs those as well. No need to worry about the composer changing with every movie there.

And Debney's a big showy composer. There should be a nice, heroic theme for Iron Man by the time we see the movie next May. And if anyone questions how good he is, listen to the Mummy 3 clips on his website or blind-buy the 2-CD Cutthroat Island soundtrack.

Bah. Djawadi's score was just fine. Lot's of memorable bits if you actually pay attention.

Especially the bit that starts at approx. 2:45 in this:

Meh. Debney just seems like another Hans Zimmer clone to me. They're taking over the world apparently.

Debney is far more talented than you think. The Zimmer sound is what Arad and the other execs at Marvel wanted for Iron Man (and they got a poor man's version of that from Djawadi).

Zimmer does his own sound best, and Debney deserves a much bigger break. Save for some really top-notch projects, all Debney does is Gary Marshall movies, Disney movies and awful comedies. Zimmer is at the point where he can pick his own projects he can work on, since he doesn't really need the money anymore.

I'm fine w/ Debney. I'm fine w/ Djwadi coming back if that's what ends up happening as instead. I thought he did a very respectable job on the last movie. Based on the interview above, it does look like Debney is likely to get it. And I really like that he wants to create a recognizable superhero theme for Iron Man. This is win/win.

I guess I have a good memory because I remember any score that I really liked.

I get what you are saying though. The three scores you mentioned are no doubt very catchy...but I don't think catchy necessarily means they're better (although I do love all 3 of them....some of my favorites). Danny elfman's Hulk and Hans Zimmer's Batman score are not really catchy but they're some of the best comic book film scores and are pretty damn good

Yes...he will be much better im sure

See Hellboy and Hellboy 2.

See the X-men trilogy.
Dude, sometimes its for the best. I prefer Hellboy I score than II but elfman's score was very fitting for the movie since it was a lot heavier on the fantasy elements. And although I thought X-men 1's score was the best of the whole trilogy a lot of people think Ottman's score was the best and I enjoyed it myself too.
Iron man's score wasn't even much of a score...I'd prefer something a little more exciting and fun.

Count me as a fan of the first film's score. "Driving With The Top Down" and "Mark ll" get frequent play on my Zune.

I'll be a little disappointed if Djwadi ends up not coming back. If he gets the job, I'm hoping that Debney incorporates the suit-up motif from 'Iron Man' at least.

unfortunately, debney said he'd start from scratch. i think debney could handle IM2, but i want Djawadi first and foremost.

Really hopin' he at least takes after the guitars n' **** used in the first. The rockin' soundtrack is part of made Iron Man so badass in the first place. "Fireman" and "Gulmira" were probably my favorites.

There really hasn't been a truly memorable new score to a superhero film(live action) in 20 years. Doesn't mean the one's we've got in the interim suck, many(like IM's score) are pretty good. Nolan's Batman films, Spider-Man, both Hulk movies, X2, hell even the FF films all had decent scores. But none of them were "memorable".

Edit: I'd say Hensleigh's Punisher movie had some decent music as well.

That is very generic. Debney will do us good. His Cutthroat Island score is amazing. I know the film is terrible, but the music was fantastic.

The thing is, I would just like if these movies started having scores that matched the scope of the movies themselves which they have generally failed to do since comic book movies have become more legitimate.

I don't think its too much to ask to get some marches or scores that are as iconic and big as Williams' Superman or Burton's Batman theme.

^You think so? I can't remember a damn thing about the score for that movie. And I can remember some so-so scores(IM, TDK/BB, SM, FF, Punisher, Hulk/TIH, XM2, etc.) even though they were no where near the level of Elfman's Batman or William's Superman scores.

To be honest the only themes that I can remember are Star Wars and Indiana Jones because they play them constantly throughout their respective franchises. Also Iron Man and TIH because I've seen them so many times.

If I remember correctly the Superman theme is way too close to Star Wars for my liking, but like I said, I don't remember it well.

First of all, the OST for the first movie was uninspired IMHO. Not even close to the ones of BB, TDK and Transformers. I hope its more engaging and epic this time.

Also, i'd like a nod to the following song. Maybe its heard on the radio or something... it would be really cool...

I thought BB. IM, & TDK(which is just BB recycled) had decent if non-iconic scores. TF? I didn't hear anything special there. The only music I can remember from that film was the Linkin' Park song from the credits.

Wow. Haven't heard that from many people.



As for the first movie's score, aside from the Mark 2 track, a lot of it seemed like a missed opportunity to add that extra level of oomf that some of the scenes needed.

If Fiedel would come out of retirement he'd conjure up some awesome score.
