As Phase 4 of the MCU inches closer and closer along to its official debut in May 2020, we are finally getting a more steady stream of breaking news with so many new projects lurking on the horizon, and today brings us even more of that exciting news! Thanks to the GeeksWorldwide Twitter account, we have learned that Marvel Studios’ Eternals has brought on 2 vastly accomplished names for the production: Ramin Djawadi as the composer and Dylan Tiechnor as the editor.
Fans should be very familiar with Djawadi’s work, becoming an Emmy winner for his work on 73 episodes of Game of Thrones along with 20 episodes of Westworld and, more recently, 16 episodes of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. He is also very near and dear to the hearts of MCU fans already, composing the music for Iron Man all the way back in 2008! Although the MCU unfortunately hasn’t received a ton of high praise for its film scoring over the years, the music from its debut film is so distinguishably awesome and recognizable, and it’s long overdue that we have that movie’s composer returning to the MCU family.
Tiechnor also has an extensive resume as an editor, winning an Oscar for his work on Zero Dark Thirty in 2012. He was also nominated for the same award for his work on There Will Be Blood and he helmed the editing for Boogie Nights, Brokeback Mountain, and The Town amongst many others. Marvel Studios have always gone after the best in the entertainment industry, and it’s so great to see them still setting lofty goals for Phase 4.
Eternals is set for a global release on November 6, 2020, and we can rest easier knowing the film’s editing and score are in fantastic hands!
