Remember when we found out Steve Rogers was going to start out touring with the USO in CAPTAIN AMERICA: FIRST AVENGER, and we all got giddy at the idea of Chris Evans channeling his inner James Cagney? Well, while we still don't know precisely what Rogers will be doing to entertain the troops, Badass Digest's Devin Faraci has learned that Academy Award-winning tunesmith might be working up an new song or two for the film.
This is certainly an unexpected turn of events, and suggests that Marvel Studios might be taking a run at next year's Original Song Oscar - which, as an unabashed fan of superheroes and musical theater (so long as treacherous ariel stunts endangering the lives of performers and audience members alike isn't involved), would delight me to no end. That said, Faraci's source seems unsure how Menken is involved (he could just be advising on the music), so let's keep our enthusiasm tempered, okay?
Head over to Badass Digest for the full story! And check out the below embed for Menken at his very best!
