Turkish composer to score superhero movie

Turkish composer Pınar Toprak is to write the music for upcoming superhero film Captain Marvel, expected to be in cinemas for March 2019, entertainment magazine Variety said.

Istanbul-born Toprak was the first female composer to score a major comic-book movie, the magazine said; appropriately enough it is one about a female superhero.

She has previously written the music for television series Krypton and some of the music for the superhero film Justice League.

“It’s an incredible honour to be a part of the Marvel Universe,” she posted on social media.
