I don't like Elfman's whimsical sound that features in a lot of his work, but I think that's largely Burtons influence rubbing off on him.

His work on Hulk seems like a complete 180 from his usual stuff.

I'm struggling to find any other work aside from perhaps Elfman's work on Spider-Man or Hulk that really stands out.
Doyle's Thor and Silvestri's CA:TFA say "Hi". Both the themes and scores are better than the scores to TDK trilogy, imho.

And here's where I pipe up with my minority opinion and say that I liked Horner's TASM theme better than any of those.

He doesn't make many memorable themes, that's for sure. I expect Superman to sound a lot like all the rest of his stuff, but not stand out in any way.
You don't need 'memorable' or 'hummable' themes to have great and effective score.

Silvestri's work on Cap felt very bland to me, largely reused a lot of his older stuff IMO

You have a point with Doyle's Thor soundtrack, by far the best of the scores from the Marvel Studios work.

Oh I agree Silvestri's CA:TFA score, although good, was nothing really special. I do believe the march he wrote for it fit the character like a glove.

If you ask me, between The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, TASM had the best score of the three, with Avengers in second place.

The Avengers' theme was outstanding, just like Doyle's Thor work. However I have to say Zimmer/Newton Howard knocked it out of the park with the Dark Knight trilogy.

Elfman's whimsical sound is one of his trademarks. But his score for '89 Batman isn't one of them, it's a bit rough and still feels fresh. I love revisiting it. Batman Returns, on the other hand, is quite a different story.

Me too. May be why that's still my favorite Elfman score. I'm not a fan of much of anything that he's done in the last decade...The Wolfman being one of the rare exceptions.

I agree eventhough I think Silvestri's score to The Avengers could've been a lot better. Though I still don't own Horner's TASM score I like what I've heard in the film. Zimmer's TDKR is easily weakest of three, which was no surprise. I still don't get all the praise and oscar talk for this score. It was mostly a rehash of cues from the previous two scores. The Bane chant was nothing special either. The score was also distracting at times in the film. This is why I wish WB had gotten somebody else to score MOS instead of Zimmer. Zimmer's not an inspired choice at all.

I really hope Zimmer plays off of Journey to the center line. I think it really works well as a Superman theme as well. I'm not really feeling to confident with Zimmer. It worked well for Batman but I think he was the wrong choice for Superman. I wanted to hear a soundtrack different from Batman. Zimmer doesn't offer much variety. but at least you know you'll get something consistent instead of going with an unknown and having a bad soundtrack

The Wolfman is simply one of Elfman's finest works ever. I wish the CD release had included Conrad Pope's additional music for the finale...

I also really liked Elfman's Spider-Man 2 score.

Don't forget f**kin' Kung Fu Panda, one of his best works, even though it was a collaboration.

There's a lot of variety in his work. Han's has even spoken about the difference between Bats and Superman, I'm entirely confident that he can come up with something that's not only distinct from his Batman work but also suitably uplifting as suits the character of Clark Kent.

I wonder how Jor-el/Lara will be approached. I'm trying to think what's the saddest piece that Hans has worked on, Prince of Egypt is coming to mind.

Actually listening to "An End, Once And For All" by Clint Mansell gives me a good destruction of Krypton vibe.
