Since the question is favorite score (singular), I'll have to go with what I think of as Alan Silvestri's Infinity Opus, which of course would be Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. For me, they're two halves of one big musical epic.

What a bad decade for superhero film scores!

That's not even a little bit true.

Even if you just count 2000-2009, there are a lot of really fine scores for the genre, even if many of the films didn't live up to their music.

X-Men 2
Hellboy
Hellboy 2
Hancock
All 3 Raimi Spider-Man films
X-Men: The Last Stand
Superman Returns
Blade 2
Fantastic Four
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Batman Begins
The Dark Knight
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Because he slavishly imitates John Barry, one presumes?

Are Jedis Superheroes? Eps 2-8 have to fit somewhere in there.

Since the question is favorite score (singular)....

Actually, what Kevin said up front was:

"But what are your favourite scores? And which one is top of the pile?"

So many are good, as long as you put one on top. I put Hellboy (2004) on top, for me that's numero uno.

Horner's Spider Man score, for me the best Spidey score of all.

I based my answer off of the thread title

The Amazing Spider-Man - James Horner
Superman Returns - John Ottman
Thor: The Dark World - Brian Tyler
Avengers: Endgame - Alan Silvestri
Captain Marvel - Pinar Toprak
Wonder Woman- Rupert Gregson-Williams

Loving Shazam! as well...


Managed to snag a copy of Aquaman from EBay for only £10. Really loving the main theme. This may make it on my list. And how could I forget about Spider-Man Homecoming!

Quality choices.

It's too bad that Tyler got sideways with Marvel. Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World are two impressive scores and back to back.

Since 2000, more or less chronologically:

X-Men, Michael Kamen
The Punisher, Carlo Siliotto
Hellboy, Marco Beltrami
X-Men: The Last Stand, John Powell
Ghost Rider, Christopher Young
Spider-Man 3, Christopher Young
The Incredible Hulk, Craig Armstrong
The Amazing Spider-Man, James Horner
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Brian Tyler

I bolded the three I return to the most. 4 would be X-Men. Since then I don't really have favorites. There are ones that I enjoy (Giacchino, Beck, Tyler). There are ones that consistently bore me (Ottman, Jackman, Bates). There are ones that I enjoy specific cues or sequences. If you wanted to make the above 9 a top 10 maybe add Powell's Hancock, which makes up for an okay first half with a wonderful second half, or possibly Tyler's Iron Man Three.

EDIT: Oh crap, I forgot Jeff Russo's occasionally sublime The Umbrella Academy. So that's in there as well.

I forgot Elfman's Hulk - I love that score! It should be used for a Frankenstein movie.

Ant-Man all the way.

I also find the 2000s onward difficult as there are few opportunities to really let loose in modern, fast-edited films. However I am partial to Silvestri's Captain America and Tyler's Iron Man 3.

I still wish Tyler's "Can You Dig It" was given a showcase in the actual movie. That would have been incredible.

Just one, eh? Tough call.

The contenders:

Unbreakable
Blade II
X2
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
The Punisher
Hellboy
Ghost Rider
Spider-Man 3
Hancock
The Amazing Spider-Man
Wolverine
Fantastic 4 (2015)

And the winner?

Looks like a tie: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) and Fantastic 4 (2015).
