Ant-Man might be the tiniest member of the Avengers, but he deserves a big-time score. For that, Marvel has turned to composer Christophe Beck for all three films, including the recent Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania! Beck, who has previously worked on some gigantic films such as Frozen, Frozen II, and Edge of Tomorrow, plus series including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and WandaVision, found this latest Ant-Man adventure to be a unique challenge to score.
It was a real honor for me to sit down and chat with Christopher Beck about his work composing for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. We talked about how some of his early scores, including on the 2000 film Bring It On, can still influence his work today. Beck discussed the evolution of the music for Ant-Man, moving from the smaller, more grounded previous films into the epic nature of Quantumania. How does he come up with the right music for such a strange, unknowable place like the Quantum Realm? Does he make music for the actor or the character?
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is in theaters now. Check out my interview with Christophe Beck below!
