    The Guardians movies have great music, and I loved Thor Ragnarok's soundtrack too.

    Are we talking soundtrack, or score?

    Best soundtrack ever is obviously from the Watchmen movie...

    Even Gotham didn't go full crazy with him? If that show wouldn't do it, I don't know who would at this point, and its so weird. A serial killer who marks his kills on his skin isn't actually anywhere near impossible in the real world, much less pretty much any version of batman's universe (especially Gotham, which is completely insane).

    and that's enough for me. That theme is far more memorable than any of the DC I've seen thus far.

    To be fair, I could identify Wonder Woman's DCEU theme probablu faster then I could the Avengers theme, and I think its at least as good, but its the only piece of DC movie music since the Tim Burton Batman theme that I've thought was any good.

    Agreed; I thought Silvestri's Avengers main title--actually all of it--sounded like generic, post-1980s action movie music, with not much heart. Wonder Woman's score is better, not only because its a more listenable composition, but it also struck a cultural blow in breaking many from the default association with the name/character "Wonder Woman" with the Charles Fox / Norman Gimbel theme for the Lynda Carter TV series, and considering the latter track's place in pop culture history, that was not an easy task, but it was accomplished.

    Black Hole or Reality, whichever name you prefer.
    Marvel seem good at using pre-existing music/songs but I love the original scores in MoS/BvS & WW.

    Nope; there are those who find it awesome, and those who are wrong. Tyler's Thor: The Dark World theme is incredible, also. ;)

    Other than the Avenger's theme and the '70s/'80s music in GOTG I don't remember any of the MCU movies' music really standing out for me.

    makes me wonder if WB might do something right - and somehow keep a Superman cameo in Shazzam under wraps until the premiere to pack a nice surprise...

    But again it's the WB DCEU film people - who up to now feel everything needed a 'Batman style' slant, so I' sure it's just wishful thinking on my part.

    Actually, I believe they wanted "Green Latern" to be the start of it, but GL tanked (and provided comedy fodder for the "Deadpool" films.)

    Yeah. I don't remember if it was ever officially confirmed, but the theory at the time was that GL's Amanda Waller was meant to be the Nick Fury figure who would connect all of the movies.
