Superhero movies continue to dominate our screens, and as the big studios continue to churn out remakes, reboots, or the next phase in a series of unending stories there is no doubt that Marvel is coming into its own with how important soundtracks can be. With Deadpool being released only a week ago, I thought it an appropriate time to look back and laugh, cry and sing with the biggest and best hits from the movies we all love.
With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy in the not so distant past and the success of the soundtrack being as much a character as Chris Pratt, I can only imagine this will be taken into account and introduced across all Superhero movies.
While Scores are still more commonly used, and in some cases the only option, there is a rich history of comic book movies from the 90’s until now I wanted to revisit and see if, and how their soundtracks stood up against the test of time.
While it is Obvious that the recent string of Marvel movies from Iron Man onwards have put slightly more thought into longevity than some of it’s predecessors. It is hard not to reminisce at some of the soundtracks from days past. So, Enjoy a trip down memory lane from Batman Forever up to the latest entry in the comic book world, Deadpool.
