Mondo Music Record Label Manager Mo Shafeek said: “Over the last 10 years, Marvel Studios has assembled such an incredible array of composers to craft new music for their ever-expanding universe of characters... some who have already had classic themes in past incarnations, and some who never had a presence on the big screen. The roster is outrageous on paper: everyone from Alan Silvestri and Michael Giacchino, to Mark Mothersbaugh and Ludwig Goransson, to, most recently, Pinar Toprak who did amazing work on Marvel Studios' 'Captain Marvel.' We are honored to start our MCU soundtrack series with 'Ant-Man and The Wasp' (one of our favorite Super Hero themes of the last few years for us was Christophe Beck's earworm theme for 'Ant-Man') and cannot wait to see what comes next!”

Composer Christophe Beck had a very specific approach in mind for each of the main characters in "Ant-Man and The Wasp," giving new insight into shaping the musical elements of the movie:

"I had previously created a theme for Ant-Man in the odd meter of seven, which means seven beats per bar. I created a theme for the Wasp which was in the odd meter of five. Most songs and scores are written in the more traditional 4/4 or 3/4 meters. But, when more beats are added to create a complex meter, it brings a dynamic, rhythmic effect to the music which fits in with the multifaceted character of these two Super Heroes."
