Why is Music from Marvel Cinematic Universe So Forgettable?
To begin I’m easiest one of the biggest fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe there is. I line up for the latest Marvel fair like the rest of the fan boys. But Tony Zhou from Every Frame a Painting, brought up a very good point when it comes to the music of the most successful film franchise in history:
“Can you sing any theme from a Marvel film?
He created this amazing analysis of not only the music in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but the state of musical scores in the film industry in general. The need to “be safe and none offensive” has watered down what could be amazing and original music.
Do you think the theme to Jaws, Star Wars, Indiana Jones or Harry Potter were safe? Maybe, maybe not but I’ll bet you can hum at least one of those themes. Take a watch of Tony’s great videos below. It might change the way you watch and listen to films in the future.
