Thor Ragnarok Finds Its Composer In Mark Mothersbaugh

Mark Mothersbaugh has been tasked to score Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok. Mothersbaugh is best known as the lead singer, co-founder and keyboardist of the New Wave band Devo, and has composed The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street, Rushmore and Pitch Perfect 2.

A comment on a NeoGaf thread about recent set images, said Mark Mothersbaugh was approached by the director himself to compose the film. The comment goes as follows
No clue if this has been mentioned yet, but Mark Mothersbaugh is doing the soundtrack for this. He had a lot of nice things to say about working with Taika Waititi, he (Mark) isn’t really a blockbuster movie guy, but Taika specifically reached out and sent him a bunch interesting demos and got him on board. The gist I got was it would be a mix of traditional orchestra and then synths. Mark seemed legitimately excited about what they were coming up with, so I’m optimistic this will have a better than normal soundtrack.
While at first was scene as a rumour, TheWrap confirmed the news and that Mothersbaugh is indeed scoring the film.

Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, with Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Karl Urban as Skurge.

Thor: Ragnarok, the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”).  Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.

The film will release 3rd of November of 2017.
