The guy from 'Pop will eat itself' also does much respected original scores for movies.
Don't forget RZA, his score for Ghost Dog was great and would match a modern take on the Spi-Guy perfectly.

He might get the credit for that flick and Kill bill, but in both cases it is mostly other people's tunes that are used for both films, so I couldn't rightly say how good he is doing an original score for a whole movie.

and Kaw, I agree that an orchestrated score is probably best for Spider-man, but I wouldn't rule out being surprised at what some of the popular musicians are capable of when it comes to scoring, and what they could do for a Spidey flick. They could even do a mix, some orchestarted, and some cool electronica.

the best electronic music makes you forget it's electronic music, if it's top quality stuff like the Fight Club music, or Air's stuff, it just sounds like cool, atmospheric music that fits the scene. A lot of composers do use electronic music within their orchestrated scores, the music for the Nolan Batman music has some electronica in there, playing with the orchestrated stuff. I'm pretty sure it does anyway, as does the music from Lost. I'm not talking about breakdancing music from the 80s, lol.

I need music with some nice themes, that can take you from one emotional place to the next, and inject action music on a moments notice.

I'd rather score and songs [as long as the lyrics of the songs fit and the music's good (not a problem with the previous trilogy IMO]), or just score, but not just songs.

And where the hell has there ever been folk music in superhero movies?

Revell is a criminally overlooked composer. His score for Daredevil was moody and unique while still being emotionally satisfying.

I know it's a bit off subject, but wouldnt it be awesome if like the last lines of the film are uncle bens words and right as Andrew finishes, it breaks into "What I've Done" by Linkin Park? I think it fits

Agreed. My favorite's being The Crow (1994) and Daredevil (2003).

I think for this film Sony needs to hire a composer who hasn't scored a comic book film. That's the best way to try and give Spider-Man his own unique score. Usually, composers of comic book films try to redo/outdo their previous scores by mimicking it, or they try to copy the latest big comic book film's music. I'd love for Howard Shore to do it. But he'd probably frown upon it, Spider-Man wasn't left in the best light.

Here's my question; if you took the classic Spider-Man song, turned it into a grand orchestral instrumental, why couldn't that work as the theme song in the movie?

Are you talking about from the classic 60s (...does whaever a spider can...) animated series song?

I'm still trying to find that 60s Spider-Man song, when it was scored by John Williams at the Oscars. To actually see if it could work.

The mark of a true fanboy: They have actively expressed interest in a Linkin Park song appearing in the film in place of score.

Howard Shore would actually be pretty awesome. I guess I don't want somebody whose only real strength is "epic" trailer score-esque stuff. The emotional side, the characters, the human element- that's what a composer needs to be able to handle, because that's what makes Spider-Man different. But Spidey should also have his own unique sound, and fans have been clammoring for a more identifiable theme than the Elfman score gave us for a long time.

I wouldn't mind Mychael Danna, I know nothing about Rob Simonsen, but my dream pick would be Thomas Newman.

only for the credits it fits with Peter fighting to forgive himself for Uncle Ben's death, but he has to live with the responsibility no matter how many times he tries to forgive himself

I see the parallel, but I also feel like that song has been way overplayed in movies and on the radio. But I'm predisposed to being hostile towarsd Linkin Park, because I've never cared for them as a band.

well, Transformers really blew it by using it. The song made no connection with it
