Composer Brian Tyler Steps in to Score Thor: The Dark World

The revelation came a few weeks ago that True Grit composer Carter Burwell was departing from the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, citing creative differences with Disney. Today, Film Music Reporter says that Iron Man 3 composer Brian Tyler has stepped in as the replacement. Tyler is no stranger to scoring comic book films, in addition to Iron Man 3 he has provided the music for Constantine, Painkiller Jane, and Alien vs. Predator: Requiem.

Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
