‘Captain Marvel’ Is Officially The First MCU Film To Hire A Female Composer

Composer Pinar Toprak has officially been hired to write the music for the upcoming Captain Marvel, making her the first woman to score a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel, which stars Brie Larson, will also be the studio’s first female-fronted film, a long-overdue milestone given that they have produced nearly twenty movies in just over a decade.

The Turkish-born composer has an extensive resume that includes writing music for the Superman prequel series Krypton and the video game Fortnite

In a statement to Instagram, Toprak said:

“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.” 

Captain Marvel, which is set to debut in March of 2019, stars Larson as Carol Danvers, an air force pilot who is imbued with super strength when her DNA is fused with an alien’s after an accident.

The film takes place in the ’90s, before the other Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Larson’s character is also expected to play a pivotal role in next year’s still-untitled Avengers sequel.

As for the future of the MCU, we so far know for sure that a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is in pre-production, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 is also on the way.
