Marvel news: Composers, Daredevil release date and Avengers tidbits
So we have some comic book movie news coming your way and I thought I'd just truncate this all into one article to save you some time. First up is some exciting news regarding composers that have just signed on, as reported by Film Music Reporter. This first one doesn't belong to Marvel proper in regards to films, but composer Marco Beltrami has been chosen to score the upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR film directed by Josh Trank that will be released on August 7 of this year. The man has had experience in the realm of comic book films with BLADE II and HELLBOY, and also provided one of the best scores of 2014 with SNOWPIERCER. Also on the composing front is that Christophe Beck has been chosen to score Peyton Reed's ANT-MAN, of which we got hold of the first trailer for yesterday. Beck provided the score for the very entertaining EDGE OF TOMORROW that hit last year, as well as the music for Disney's FROZEN before that. For my film score enthusiasts, if you haven't given a FROZEN a listen (not talking about the lyrical songs here), then you're missing out!
As you can see from the image above, we have a new picture of Charlie Cox in his Daredevil outfit that'll be featured in the upcoming Netflix show along with a motion poster and premiere date! The first season will hit Netflix in it's entirety on Friday, April 10! The show follows the titular hero has he lawyers by day and beats up baddies by night, which also stars Rosario Dawson and Vincent D’Onofrio. The costume is not really doing much for me, but I'll wait to see that bad boy in motion before making the final call. This next picture is that of Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. While not particularly special on its own, Mark Ruffalo posted this on his personal tumblr with a slightly revealing caption.
Banner’s been living in Stark Tower. They’ve been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He’s doing work that augments Tony’s own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong…
Ever since the two met in in the first AVENGERS film, Banner and Stark seemed like a match made in heaven that could yield some really cool results. Thus far, Stark has seemingly been the sole blame for the creation of Ultron, but it'll be interesting to see what part Banner has to play and how that leads these two down Hulkbuster road. While we're talking AGE OF ULTRON, some new footage was shown at the Consumer Electronics Show that's going down in Las Vegas. Aside from some interview clips, IGN reported that there were a few clips showing Ultron's minions bursting through the walls of a train in a slow-motion sequence with Quicksilver. Also on display was a shot of Iron Man flying into the camera, leaving behind Ultron's army, and the destruction of a Samsung building. With the new AGE OF ULTRON trailer set to hit on Monday, perhaps we'll get to see these clips sooner rather than later!
Daredevil will arrive via Netflix on April 10, while AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will be released on May 1.
