Man of Steel? Wonder Woman? Y'all trippin'?

Avenger's Theme is above those. Maybe it doesn't quite hang with, y'know, Star Wars or friggin' Indiana Jones, but I'm willing to give it the Batman or Superman level of awareness.

I've definitely learned from this thread that everyone has their own bias and bubble. Okay well I knew that already, but even more now.

It's not top-tier iconic but it's more memorable to me than people are giving it credit.

But wow, does the MCU need more themes. Because hearing the Avenger's theme for the 50th time during Infinity War was like ugh pleassse stop

I've seen every Marvel movie except Captain Marvel and I legit can't remember any of the music, including the themes.

So I'm gonna go with naw.

Well these two are now used multiple times.

Anyone seriously arguing it isn’t iconic is off their rocker.

I’m astounded they nailed the theme as perfectly as they did. It’s instantly recognizable and it makes you extremely hyped/sad depending on which version you’re hearing.

It's not as iconic as those mentioned in the title, but yes it is.

It not even as iconic as the Bond theme or MI theme etc.. Avengers theme is the most banal composition I have heard these last few years.
Well Bond & MI themes do have 50 years of history behind them.

Even just listening to the theme, there's only like one part of the theme that's actually good. Compare that to the Indiana Jones theme.

It wasn't at first, but as it's been reprised across the different films - it has absolutely grown on me. Definitely going to be as iconic as the greats with time.
Yeah, initially, I didn’t recognize it without YouTubing it but by the time the Infinity War trailer laid down those first few notes of the remix, I immediately recognized it.

I dunno if that makes it iconic though.

Now, the Wonder Woman theme, they nailed that.

The whole thing is not, but the wind part of the song that happens like 2 minutes in is the most symbolic piece of music in the superhero genre since the superman theme.

Only by way of repetition I feel. It’s good, but it didn’t emmediately inspire or stick with me, and seemingly a lot of people, until recently.
 
Are you saying you don’t see DBZ merchandise or people talking about it? It’s literally in every GameStop and Hot Topic. The manga has been done for years and yet the series stlll continues. The latest movie got #3 at the box office with a limited run, and outlets that don’t usually talk about it were. It gets like 3 video games a year and you have young adults who have grown up on it for 20 years spreading the fandom.

But it’s all in my head. Sure man.
It actually is in your head. Do you really believe DB has trascended anime and become more mainstream? Hot topic? Game stop? A movie? Those aren't convincing stats.

didn't feel like it in 2012 but as the motif kept coming back i realized how strong it was

at this point it feels iconic as fuck, synonymous with the brand imo

I literally only remember it when it's played. If you asked me right now to hum the Avengers theme, I wouldn't be able to do it.

So no.

if Star Wars is at a 10, Avengers is at a 6 at best

i clicked the link in the OP and listened to the first minute and 1/2 and dont recognize any of it, and ive seen all 3 avengers movies,

im dropping it down to a 4 at best
The iconic part is about 2/3 way through, I think. I agree that the rest isn't very memorable.

My friend who isn't a comic book, film, game, online person in any way heard me playing the latest avengers trailer and justcaughtthe music and said "Avengers, cool!".

I think people like that know it. We all know it. So if it's. It quite there yet it will be in time. The films are far too popular for it not to be, as much as that obviously pains many of you.

It's pretty bad, in fact it's easily the worst piece of music in the entirety of the MCU films, and that's not saying much.

Its only recognisable because it's used so much and forced into the Infinity War trailers. It's forced onto us.

It's just so dull and awkward and doesn't fit with the personalities or any of the moments it's used in.

21 box office leading films and the only recognisable music is "Back in Black" and "The Immigrant song".

You could have just said isn’t an online person, no?

Survey 100 people. Ask them to listen to both themes, and ask them to name what movie each is from. I would be too money that more people would recognize the Wonder Woman theme
I would but don't just have a 100 people around to survey. Avengers would win by 95 or more.
