CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER teaser sheet

ComingSoon noted this interesting little tidbit over at Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER website.  

Seems the music playing in the background over the site’s main page brings us a sample of Henry Jackman’s score for the film.  Jackman is no stranger to Marvel franchises, having previously scored X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.  As far as I know, by the way, Henry is not related to Hugh.  

I’m having a blast with the Marvel movieverse thus far, although I’ve felt the scores have been...a bit vacant.  More like the “sonic wallpaper” folks used to complain about regarding the STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION music...present...but not a driving component...and I think that undercuts the on-screen potency at times.  Low on thematics, etc. ‘Cept for maybe Patrick Doyle’s THOR score - that had some nice theme work going on...

This said, YES, there’s more to superheroes than strong themes and big music - and I do think the Marvel movies have nicely illustrated this point.  So, is music an actual shortcoming of these films?  Or is the whole issue a matter of preference?  Or, does reality lie somewhere in-between? 

Hear a snippet of Jackman’s WINTER SOLDIER score HERE.  The film releases April 2014.
