Captain Marvel is hitting a lot of firsts for a Marvel movie: first female co-director (Anna Boden, with Ryan Fleck) and first female lead (Brie Larson). It will also be the first to be scored by a female composer. Pinar Toprak took to Instagram to make the announcement.
I’m so thrilled to finally announce that I will be scoring the upcoming CAPTAIN MARVEL! It’s an incredible honor to be a part of the Marvel Universe. So many thoughts racing through my head. And the main one is gratitude. I have so many people to thank for helping me on this journey but first and foremost, my incredible agents Laura Engel and Richard Kraft for believing in me from day one and Dave Jordan and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck for giving me this opportunity of a lifetime. #captainmarvel
