For most people, Hans Zimmer alone is enough in order to make the score for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 epic and worthy of the license. However, Hans Zimmer himself is not part of that group, as the veteran composer has recently assembled some sort of a musical supergroup in order to help him score the upcoming movie.
Zimmer’s “crew” consists of Johnny Marr, Pharrell Williams, Dave Stewart and Incubus’s Michael Einziger, which means the musical stylings that he will be able to draw on will run the gamut:
“Marc [Webb] and I were talking about Spider-Man, and as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man,” said Zimmer.
“With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, ‘Why not start a band?’ Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve.”
