Though Thor 2 was originally going to be scored by Carter Burwell, Marvel Studios replaced the composer with Brian Tyler, known for Iron Man 3, The Expendables 2 and Battle Los Angeles.
Tyler previously told the Huffington Post that it's great to score both Thor and Iron Man as they tie into the Avengers, and that the god of thunder is more akin to Indiana Jones on the Starship Enterprise.
The feel of Thor is a very different than Iron Man. Yet they live in the same universe. For me, it’s like somehow Indiana Jones showed up on the Enterprise; or something. It’s just awesome! But it’s great because, for me, I get to do something completely different and I’m really excited about that project.
Now we hear from Iranian American singer Azam Ali who sounds just as excited about Thor 2 as she will be providing vocals on the soundtrack; via her Facebook:
Now that it's all done, I can officially announce that I will be the featured vocalist on the upcoming score by the hugely talented composer Brian Tyler Fan Page for the major motion picture "Thor- The Dark World" to be released in November. I saw the first one and loved it. This one is even better. I've worked with Brian over the years on several scores most notable the popular "Children of Dune", so it was great to work with him again after so many years, even though this time I recorded my vocals in Montreal and sent them to LA. It is rare that I'm super excited to see a film I've worked on. This is one of them.
Below you can check out a sample of Azam Ali's work with "In Other Worlds," which currently has over 1 million views on YouTube.
