We are still quite a while away from the release of Marvel’s Ant-Man; however, this puts us in the best time for us as fans. Being in pre-production, this is when all of the juicy details are being released such as casting announcements, pictures, story lines, and so much more. Edgar Wright dropped one of those details on us yesterday.
The director announced via Twitter that composer Steve Price would be composing the score to Ant-Man.
Huge congrats to @SteveBPrice for his Bafta Award for the ‘Gravity’ score. I guess I should drop the news that he is scoring ‘Ant-Man’.

As Wright said, Price just won an award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, otherwise known as BAFTA, for his work on the film Gravity.
Just in case you are not familiar with the premise of the upcoming Marvel adventure Ant-Man, here is a look at the synopsis via IMDb.com.
Biochemist Dr. Hank Pym uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.”
The task of scoring a film is sometimes overlooked as a minor detail or something going on in the background; however, the score of a film is one of the most essential parts of the storyline. You can write the greatest storyline in the world, but if there is silence behind it, the scene just doesn’t have the same feel. You may not even notice it is your average film; however, I assure you that you would definitely notice if it wasn’t there.
Ant-Man is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015.
