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.

Production recently began on the superhero movie, which will be directed by Taika Waititi (“Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) and star Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo.

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.
