Not at first. After all these years it really sticks just like the others. I love it
They literally had a Goku float at the Macy’s Day Parade
Pretty much where I stand. It's a slow burn in popularity. Batman and Superman had themes that hit right out on release. This one took a bit to grow on me, and now when I hear it, it's pretty iconic to "The Avengers".
It's used during the "BRING ME THANOS" scene in Infinity war.I'd say it's recognizable in that if you heard it you'll probably be able to state it's the Avengers theme.
But it's not iconic because I feel like if you asked most people what is the Avengers theme they wouldn't necessarily know it off hand.
I also, and probably woefully wrong, only really remember its usage in the first movie. Like I'm sure in Age of Ultron and Infinity Wars, but couldn't tell you when and where
Yup I agree with this, hell the MoS soundtrack is one of the best in the comic movies.
It's used in non-avengers movies basically any time they mention the Avengers. Like in captain marvel:Yeah at this point I think it's iconic or at least will be in due time. Problem is that it only really appears in the Avenger films and even then it wasn't used that well in Age of Ultron.
I just think the problem with the song is that it wasn't until Infinity War that they used the song in scenes well enough for it to become iconic but I think after Endgame the argument of it being iconic will be more in it's favor.
With that said I think the MCU isn't completely devoid of good songs. I love Antman's and the Guardians of the Galaxy themes and I wish they had more recognition but I guess that comes from songs only being in these movies.
The fact is unless they make a leitmotif that's used in every MCU film the MCU is never going to get a song on the same level as the Star Wars themes. Sometimes exposure is what makes a song standout and none of the MCU songs really get that exposure past their film
Was thinking the same thing. I listened to the link in the OP and thought "isn't that just the same thing they play in all the Marvel movies?" but I guess I'm way off.
I’m trying :(
This, Cap, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Black Panther themes are the only real recognizable ones for me, which is a shame. Captain Marvel’s was pretty solid, but as I’ve only seen the movie once, I don’t remember it yet. I’m glad Black Panther’s seems to have caught on a bit with crowds, as every showing of Infinity War I went to had the audience react as soon as they heard the song begin.
It was definitely used poorly in Age of Ultron. You hear shades of it during quieter moments (like when Tony tells the Avengers defending Earth from whatever sent the Chitauri is the real Endgame). And they tried to recreate the iconic rotating shot in Sokovia when the team defended the button that would send the asteroid hurtling toward Earth, but ultimately the best use of the song was during the credits, with the sculpture of the Avengers fighting Ultron off.
The Avengers theme is continually one of the loudest blaring themes I’ve heard in cinema, so, nah.
I believe it was Kevin who specifically called out that video as the reason they were changing the way they approached scoring MCU films going forward.
