Although often overlooked by the general audience, music is one of the most indispensable tools in filmmaking because of the role it plays in creating the atmosphere.Over the years, the superhero genre has spawned countless iconic tunes, including the Avengers, spidermanand Batman – Two of them were scored by composer Danny Elfman.
