Mark Mothersbaugh, best known as the lead singer, co-founder and keyboardist of the New Wave band Devo, is composing the score for Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” TheWrap has learned.
Mothersbaugh is no stranger to film work. His previous big-screen credits include “The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street,” “Rushmore” and “Pitch Perfect 2.”
A representative for Marvel declined to comment; a rep for Mothersbaugh has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
“Thor: Ragnarok,” due in theaters on November 3, 2017, will be a gladiator movie pitting Thor against Jack Kirby-esque monsters in a arena in a far-off world and then square off against that arena’s champion: The Hulk.
Rumors of Mothersbaugh’s involvement first appeared on the comment forum Neogaf.
