Award-winning composer Christophe Beck reteams with the Marvel Cinematic Universe to score Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to Ant-Man. The film marks the third collaboration between Beck and director Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) beginning 18 years ago with the romcom hit Bring It On (Kirsten Dunst, Paul Rudd). The composer is no stranger to creating a musical voice for superheroes, with score credits including Ant-Man (2015), Elektra (2005), and the song "Blind Man" for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014). Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in U.S. theaters on July 6, the same day Marvel Music/Hollywood Records are releasing the digital soundtrack to Ant-Man and the Wasp Original Motion Picture.
In addition to recording with a full orchestra, Beck explains that he was excited to create a theme for The Wasp, Ant-Man's partner-in-crime as well as incorporate more musical elements than the previous film. "I had previously created a theme for the Ant-Man in the odd meter of seven which means seven beats per bar. I created a theme for The Wasp which was in the odd meter of five. Most songs and scores are written in the more traditional 4/4 or 3/4 meters. But, when more beats are added to create a complex meter, it brings a dynamic, rhythmic effect to the music which fits in with the multifaceted character of these two superheroes."
