Marvel Studios had a major presence at this year’s Comic-Con panel in Hall H, with the long awaited introduction of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and the revelation of Star-Lord’s father. But one of the overlooked bit of news out that panel is that Marvel has apparently redone the intro sequence to its live-action films, and you don’t have to wait to see it in theaters!
JoBlo has posted the new Marvel Studios video, which builds upon the page flipping Marvel logo that was introduced in 2002 with the original Spider-Man movie. The biggest difference in the new version is that it plays up the live-action heroes as opposed to their counterparts in the comics. Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Black Widow get some significant face time, but the new sequence also gives Black Panther, Ant-Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy prominent spots as well. There are even a few famous lines from The Avengers in script form, including Nick Fury’s line about bringing the team together, and Bruce Banner’s “secret.”
Michael Giacchino composed the new theme for this sequence, which is only fitting since he is also providing the music for Doctor Strange. That’s likely where we will see this video used on the big screen for the first time. You may notice that Spider-Man isn’t in this video; we wonder if that is due to some legal issue pertaining to Marvel and Sony’s shared rights to the character, or if Marvel is just waiting for Spider-Man: Homecoming to add him to the lineup.
For comparison’s sake, here’s the previous version of the Marvel Studios opening that debuted in 2013 in front of Thor: The Dark World.
Brian Tyler composed the theme for that intro, which really grew on us over the last three years. But if that theme had to be replaced, then Giacchino was the right guy to do it.
