Marvel have released a brand new poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron aka the highest grossing superhero film of 2015, aka a nice appetizer until the main course, which is Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. While obviously photo shopped, I love the composition of this poster. The returning Avengers feature front and centre, while new additions, while visible, are in the background. The website Badass Digest has done some digging and learned that Anthony Mackie will make his second MCU appearance, returning as Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon. It is also learned that veteran music composer Danny Elfman will contribute to the film’s score. He’s no stranger to superhero themes, having worked on Tim Burton’s Batman films, Ang Lee’s Hulk film, and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. He will collaborate with Brian Tyler, who previously scored Watchmen, Thor: The Dark World & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Moving over to the DC Cinematic Universe but sticking with the topic of superhero music. At the Academy Awards, composer Hans Zimmer reaffirmed that he will be scoring Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Due to his past association with Batman, via The Dark Knight Trilogy that portion of the score will be handled by Junkie XL. Meanwhile, Zimmer will expand on his Superman themes from Man of Steel, while creating distinctive themes for the characters of Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
