Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh to score Thor: Ragnarok
We were already excited about Thor: Ragnarok‘s ’80s feel when its official logo was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con this July, but news of the man behind the film’s music has seriously just upped its retro cred. Mark Mothersbaugh, multi-instrumentalist of iconic band Devo, has been confirmed to score the new Marvel instalment starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and co.
Mothersbaugh already has an impressive soundtrack filmography, with his credits including a number of Wes Anderson films (The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tenenbaums) as well as children’s movies such as Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and The LEGO Movie.

Directed by Taika Waititi of What We Do in the Shadows fame, Thor: Ragnarok promises to be a cosmic road trip that is rumoured to feature a number of MCU cameos, including a possible appearance from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.
We shall have to wait and see when Thor: Ragnarok hits cinemas on November 3rd, 2017.
Meanwhile, Doctor Strange hits UK cinemas on October 28th 2016, ahead of its American release on November 4th.
