“Venom” will be scored by “Black Panther” master Ludwig Göransson
Black Panther has broken all sorts of records, but perhaps more importantly, it has redefined what a Marvel film can be. The first MCU film to—in my humble opinion—tread the same emotional landscape as Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, Black Panther likewise distinguishes itself from its in-universe contemporaries with a musical score that is far-and-away the most interesting and thematically-sophisticated entry that Marvel has featured in any of their films (honorable mention to Michael Giacchino’s Doctor Strange).
The mastermind behind the Panther score is Ludwig Göransson, the Swedish composer who has been attached to a number of director Ryan Coogler’s prior projects. And now, according to a report from Deadline, Göransson is expanding his comic book pedigree into Sony’s extended Spider-Man universe with Venom, starring Tom Hardy.
Göransson seamlessly blends a variety of styles—from European to African to hip-hop—in his Black Panther score, producing something unique and timeless. I’m excited to see what he will bring to Venom, and look forward to experiencing it in October when the film opens in the US. In the meantime, head on over to Deadline to read their exclusive.
