Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson has signed on to score Venom starring Tom Hardy, another highly-anticipated comic book adaptation for the silver screen, according to an exclusive report by Deadline.
While it will not be an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony's origin story about the popular Spider-Man antagonist still has tons of fans eager for an edgier adaptation of the iconic villain than the abysmal version played by Topher Grace in 2007's Spider-Man III.
This will not be the first time that Göransson has worked on a film with director Ruben Fleischer. The pair also appeared in the same credits for the 2011 comedy 30 Minutes or Less. Other notable movies composed by Göransson include two of Ryan Coogler's other projects, Creed and Fruitvale Station, as well as hit television series like Community and New Girl.
Of his work on Black Panther, Göransson told Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision, “I was incredibly excited as it was a dream of mine to score a superhero movie. I also felt incredible pressure to pay homage to African culture and its traditional music. It’s not lost on me that I’m a Swedish guy from one of the coldest countries in the world.”
Along with contributing to his fair share of successful movie scores, the Swedish producer and composer has also worked alongside the multi-talented Donald Glover as the producer for his Childish Gambino albums. In fact, the two are reportedly currently working together on the next (and apparently the last) Gambino project.
Filmgoers will be able to listen to Göransson's latest work on Venom when the supervillain flick finally hits theaters on October 5.
