<strong><em>Thor: The Dark World</em></strong> loses composer Carter Burwell
Composer Carter Burwell has backed away from his scoring duties on the Marvel Phase Two sequel Thor: The Dark World, due to creative differences. Here's what a Marvel insider had to say about the departure.

"They like him but it wasn't the right project."

The studio is reportedly close to announcing Carter Burwell's replacement, although there is no indication of who that may be. This would have been the composer's first superhero project, after providing the scores for Oscar-worthy projects such as The Blind Side, The Kids Are All Right, and True Grit. His most recent work can be heard in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, Seven Psychopaths, and the upcoming Wikileaks drama The Fifth Estate.

Alan Taylor directs this superhero sequel, with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Kat Dennings, and Idris Elba reprising their roles from Thor, and Christopher Eccleston playing the villainous Malekith the Accursed.
