Danny Elfman has revealed that he will be writing the score for the upcoming MCU movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is to be directed by Sam Raimi.
For those who don’t know who Danny Elfman is, you will certainly recognise his work. He has worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest directors and written the scores to some iconic movies.
He is most notable for his work alongside Tim Burton and wrote the scores for Batman (1989) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). He has also worked with Sam Raimi and scored not only his 1990 superhero noir, Darkman, they also worked together on both Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004). Prior to his time writing the scores for movies, Elfman was the singer-songwriter for the new wave group Oingo Boingo.
In a recent interview with Inverse, Elfman spoke about his latest single “Love in the Time of Covid,” a dark rock song about love, lust, and lack thereof in a year of lockdowns. He also confirmed he is scoring the 2022 movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but he didn’t give away any details on the movie.
I am starting to do bits of pre-work for Doctor Strange 2 that Sam Raimi’s directing.
Even though I don’t start it for some months, there’s bits of recorded music they need for the sets.
