JOHN DEBNEY confirmed on IRON MAN 2
The composer's agency, The Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency, confirms that John Debney be working to provide the original musical accompaniment for the upcoming sequel to the super hero franchise, Iron Man 2.
Quoting from wikipedia:
Iron Man 2 is an upcoming 2010 superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics fictional character Iron Man. This film is directed by Jon Favreau, with Robert Downey Jr. reprising the title role. The film will be released on May 7, 2010.
In an interview with USA Today, director Jon Favreau revealed that the sequel is set six months after the events of Iron Man, and stated that Stark's revealing of his identity is taking its toll on him. Favreau also discussed their version of Iron Man's comic book nemesis the Mandarin, and how it "allows us to incorporate the whole pantheon of villains". He also mentioned that S.H.I.E.L.D. will continue to have a major role.
During development, Favreau said the film would explore Stark's alcoholism, but it would not be "the Leaving Las Vegas version". Downey said, while promoting the first film, that Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) would probably develop a drinking problem as he is unable to cope with his age, as well as Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) getting a boyfriend. Before filming began, Downey revealed that while the film was not an adaptation of the Demon in a Bottle storyline from the comic book series, it was more about the "interim space" between the origin and the Demon story arc.
Stay tuned for more.
