In an interesting turn of events, Tyler Bates, who composed music for John Wick and Guardians of the Galaxy has been roped in to score the music for Deadpool 2, the sequel to 2016’s Deadpool.
Deadpool 2 has wrapped up its filming and is heading towards post-production work that includes editing, digital effects and scoring. There are only seven months to go for the release, and the film seems right on schedule. Deadpool 2 had to undergo a change of director when Tim Miller stepped down for another project. David Leitch then came on board and things have moved smoothly since then. The addition of Tyler Bates as music composer will speed up the post-production work.
Tyles Bates has scored for many comic book and action films that includes Guardians of the Galaxy, 300, Watchman and John Wick. What’s more, Bates has already worked with Deadpool 2 director Leitch on John Wick. Though the two were part of 300, they didn’t have to interact much because at the time Leitch was working on stunts. It is quite possible that Leitch would have been the one to bring Bates on board.
Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg), who scored music for Deadpool was considered for the sequel. However, he turned away after Miller stepped down.
Deadpool 2 will have a different style as compared to its original. However, action and comic book movie is Tyler Bates forte, and since he knows Leitch well enough, we can confidently say that Bates will deliver a score to remember for life!
Almost all the cast in Deadpool will be returning in the sequel with Ryan Reynolds making his comeback as the Merc with a Mouth. Then there is Morena Baccarin who will play his girlfriend Vanessa. Deadpool 2 will also see the return of Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead) and Stefan Kapicic (Colossus). The new entries to this film include Josh Brolin (Cable), and Zazie Beetz (Domino).
Deadpool 2 is expected to release on June 1, 2018.
