Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness: Danny Elfman Shares Photos As He Composes The Sequel’s Score

Danny Elfman shares photos of his process while composing the score for Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness.

Doctor Strange, meet Danny Elfman.

The MCU is going bananas. 27 films. 5 TV series. Countless shorts and one-shots. And it just keeps growing and growing. The studio has released 10 projects in the past year, including highlights like WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home, and the less-acclaimed Eternals, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and What If…?. Up next on the 2022 roster is Moon Knight, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Thor: Love and Thunder, and of course, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness just keeps on getting bigger and bigger. First it was just Doctor Strange. Then it was Wong. Then Mordo. Then Wanda Maximoff. Then America Chavez. Then Multiverse shenanigans. Then Sam Raimi. Now, it’s Danny Elfman. The film is growing to a scale that’s unparalleled in the film industry, and might even beat out Spider-Man: No Way Home for a higher spot on the highest-grossing worldwide list. The film’s future is looking very promising, especially with Danny Elfman in charge of the musical score.

Danny Elfman’s tweet on scoring Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

The tweet can be seen below:

It’s good to hear that Danny Elfman will be back and composing again soon, as it’s been a while since we’ve heard one of his scores in the MCU. He is a legendary composer, and has scored extremely well-known projects like Justice League, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and 1989’s Batman. Originally, composer Michael Giacchino (who scored the first film) was expected to return to score the sequel, but along the way plans seemed to have changed, as Giacchino is now scoring Thor: Love and Thunder.
