It seems that composer Pinar Toprak is getting ready to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a way that not many people imagined. She will be the first woman to score a Marvel Studio movie and she will work on the upcoming and highly-anticipated Captain Marvel. The movie is also the first female-fronted one to come from Marvel who will now also have a woman to compose the score for the studio’s upcoming feature. On Thursday, Toprak herself wrote a heartfelt message on her official Instagram page. In it, she thanked everyone for the incredible opportunity to work with Marvel. She called what happens an “incredible honor” and said that the first thought going through her head is gratitude.
Pinar Toprak is part of the wave of young talents that have taken Hollywood by storm. Previously, she has worked on SyFy’s successful series called Krypton, which tells the story of a young Superman. Apart from this, she has also provided the score for the popular videogame Fortnite. It seems that she can smell success in the projects that she is taking. Maybe Captain Marvel will also become one of them and will establish her as a household name in the movie score industry.
Pinar Toprak, the first woman to score a Marvel movie
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
Two directors, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, are going to helm the upcoming Captain Marvel. It stars Brie Larson as the famous and very powerful Marvel superhero. Apart from her, the movie will also star big actors like Jude Law and Annette Bening. Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace are also going to reprise their Guardians of the Galaxy roles along with Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg, who will play younger versions of their characters. The movie is going to be set in the 1990s and fans are now eagerly expecting it. Mainly because the end of Avengers: Infinity War teased Captain Marvel as potentially being the only hope for the universe. It’s set to open March 8, 2019.
