    Upcoming Film Scores has officially confirmed that Scottish composer CRAIG ARMSTRONG will score The Incredible Hulk, not Danny Elfman as originally rumored.

    Press release:

    He is not an establish music composer but in order to establish yourself you need to start from somewhere. So this is his big break.

    Huh? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Armstrong_(composer)

    And what's with Robert Downey Jr. being listed as supporting cast?

    Yup, Downey Jr. is apparently appearing in one brief scene as Tony Stark (opposite William Hurt's General Ross so the rumor goes).

    The same scene (maybe from another angle or something), I think is gonna be repeated in Iron-Man...at least that would make sense to me.

    Granted, Ray Charles' music kind of overshadows the score, but still.

    It's not a rumor -- William Hurt himself confirmed it in an interview. While Downey hasn't confirmed it yet, maybe he was under a gag order by Paramount/Marvel not to say anything about it.

    Or maybe it'll be one scene left on the cutting room floor.

    Elfman is really good, but I'd rather see someone new do a comic book movie. Elfman's scores start to sound the same after a while.

    I've always heard good things about the music in Moulin Rouge' so I'm pleased with this choice.

    O Verona is one of Craig Armstrongs most popular tracks

    With that comment you sound like an Elfman hater. I'm still interested to see what Armstrong comes up with. Since this one promises more action than the last film. At least no M/V composer is scoring a comic book/marvel movie like TDK and IM and the 2009 Wolvie movie.

    Sounds pretty cool. Has a kind of "God of War" sound to it. I found this on youtube so you can hear for yourself:

    Uh, Harry Gregson-Williams is FAR more talented than his collegues at MV/RC studios including Zimmer himself and Ramin Djawadi. If anything, his score for Wolverine will probably be in the vein of his friend John Powell's score for X-Men 3. They did co-compose quite a few movie scores together.

    Armstrong is an inspired idea for The Incredible Hulk. I just hope he can deliver on the action music, though.

    Yea my main concern is the action music, although O Verona does not sound too bad I'm still not fully convinced. But I believe Marvel knows what they are looking for and I guess they believe he can deliver. We will see
