‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh To Score Marvel Film

Thor: Ragnarok Logo

Avant-garde musician Mark Mothersbaugh became an icon of 1980’s rock when he helped found the offbeat band Devo and he has composed original music scores for over 170 films and television shows. He’s long been the go-to music man for directors such as Wes Anderson and the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and now it looks he’ll be bringing his particular brand of quirky, energetic movie melodies to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Mothersbaugh has been hired to provide the score for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok, which is currently filming in Australia under director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, respectively, are returning as the heroic, hammer-wielding God of Thunder and his villainous brother Loki.

Mark Ruffalo will be joining the fun as both Bruce Banner and his giant green alter ego the Hulk since Ragnarok‘s plot will reportedly be incorporating elements of the classic “Planet Hulk” arc that ran for over a year in the pages of The Incredible Hulk.

New to the Thor movies are Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, and Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster. Given Waititi’s background in making films with wit, imagination, and an authentic sense of time and place, the decision to bring in Mothersbaugh to create the score for Ragnarok feels like one both appropriate for the third Thor feature in the MCU and boldly outside of the box for superhero cinema. Hopefully Mothersbaugh will actually be able to give the film a memorable theme, which would be a rarity and a genuine pleasure for a Marvel Studios feature.

Thor: Ragnarok invades theaters on November 3, 2017.
