Why Marvel Movies Don’t Have Any Catchy Theme Songs

Can you think of any memorable music from any of the Marvel movies? The fine people at Every Frame a Painting know why!

Personally, I’m a fan of the Avengers theme song, but I suppose that one hasn’t caught on yet. I can’t play it by ear, but I know it when I hear it. This is a pretty fascinating video. I can honestly say I don’t think about music very much, especially in movies. Though I’m also easily susceptible to being emotionally manipulated in a film with the right musical cue.

And it is kind of sad that none of the Marvel superheroes have their own little theme song. It could be played when they appear on screen!

  1. A good reason for this is that the music for Star Wars was directly patterned after Holst’s “The Planets”- in fact, you could listen to the planets and find eerie similarities with the Star Wars soundtrack because John Williams pretty much almost ripped off many of the main motivic ideas. Star Wars’ score is leitmotivic because Holst’s work was leitmotivic. Most movie scores don’t follow that trend.
