“Marvel Symphonic Universe” Explores the Boring Music in Marvel’s Movies

Like pretty much everything else in life, movie scores are subject to trends, and Marvel’s movies have been following a very particular trend of making their music cues less noticeable. So, while you can easily hum a few bars from most—if not all—of your other favorite movie franchises, Marvel’s cinematic universe will likely have you drawing a blank, as illustrated in this video.

Whether or not that’s a good thing is up to personal taste—I’m in the “less noticeable is better” camp myself—but it is a bit disappointing that there’s no character or franchise theme music to latch onto/belt out some non-lexical vocables to.
