The latest episode of Tony Zhou‘s fantastic video essay series Every Frame a Painting takes a look at one of Marvel Studios’ biggest problems. While Marvel gets a lot of things right that others don’t, one aspect consistently criticised of their films is the lack of iconic theme music. But why hasn’t Marvel been able to produce a movie with a theme song that you can remember? Watch the video now after the jump.

If you weren’t at San Diego Comic Con 2016 this summer, today is your lucky day.
Marvel Studios really brought the house down with their panel in Hall H at the pop culture convention back in July, but many fans were disappointed that they didn’t release any of the footage shown that day online with the exception of a new Doctor Strange trailer which debuted simultaneously online. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok showed none of what played in Hall H that day to fans. But that changes today.
One of the best parts of the Marvel Studios panel this year was a mockumentary made by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi which showed what the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) was up to while the rest of The Avengers were embroiled in their own conflict in Captain America: Civil War. Now the hilarious Thor mockumentary is officially online for you to watch in its entirety. Read More »

Marvel Studios has had a music problem for nearly a decade now. Say what you will about Warner Bros.’ recent wave of DC movies (I’ve certainly said my fair share), but at least Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel score is an instantly identifiable piece of music that captures its lead character. For all of their various charms, the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been grossly lacking in strong scores. Other than Tony Stark liking AC/DC and some occasionally stirring melodies in the Captain America movies, the heroes of the MCU have been deprived of music that matches their heroic actions.
And it’s starting to look like Marvel Studios is starting to do something about it. First, Michael Giacchino was hired to compose the score for the upcoming Doctor Strange, a promising sign for a movie that begs to have a unique score. Now, a new report claims that Mark Mothersbaugh will be lending his distinctive sound to Thor: Ragnarok.
