‘Captain Marvel’ Will Have First Female Composer in Marvel History
A female composer has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe to score Captain Marvel.
Composer Pinar Toprak is making Marvel Studios history by being their first female composer. It only makes sense as Captain Marvel is already being played by a woman. If you aren’t caught up on the upcoming Marvel movie, Brie Larson will be playing pilot Carol Danvers, a.k.a Captain Marvel.
I got to learn from the best. Meet Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, 57th Wing Commander. I had the pleasure of spending time with her and many other badass, fascinating, and deeply hilarious pilots on a recent visit to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. Thank you for helping me get closer to core of Carol Danvers aka #CaptainMarvel. Thank you @marvel for bringing us together. Higher further faster more!
Toprak shared her excitement on Instagram, saying “It’s an incredible honor to be a part of the Marvel Universe. So many thoughts racing through my head. And the main one is gratitude.”
I’m so thrilled to finally announce that I will be scoring the upcoming CAPTAIN MARVEL! It’s an incredible honor to be a part of the Marvel Universe. So many thoughts racing through my head. And the main one is gratitude. I have so many people to thank for helping me on this journey but first and foremost, my incredible agents Laura Engel and Richard Kraft for believing in me from day one and Dave Jordan and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck for giving me this opportunity of a lifetime. #captainmarvel
Toprak’s work has also appeared in the video game Fornite Syfy’s Krypton.
We don’t know much, plot-wise, about the film except that it is set in the ’90s and will have some action in space. Actors Jude Law, Lee Pace, Gemma Chan, and more will be joining Larson in the film. Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters March 8, 2019.
