Marvel Studios unveils its new logo

November 13th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr 1 Comment

If you got a chance to see Thor: The Dark World, you got a first look at the new design for the Marvel Studios logo. Marvel has now posted a video, which features music from Brian Tyler, online with President Kevin Feige explains the new design.

 “We designed the very first Marvel logo for the first Spider-Man film,” remembers Feige. “We’ve used that logo for eleven years, and with ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ it felt like a good time to update it because this is the very first film that only has the Marvel logo in front of it. You look back at the other films, and they’ve also featured our studio partners’ or distribution partners’ logos. But now that we are our own entity within the Walt Disney Company, it is only the Marvel logo in front of the movies. So that felt like the time to update it and have something that is more substantial as a standalone logo in front of our features.”

 The new logo will appear in front of all of Marvel’s films as well as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 “The key was, we really loved that old flip logo,” the Producer remarks. “We didn’t want to re-invent the wheel, but we wanted it to feel bigger, to feel more substantial, which is why it starts with the flip, but suddenly it’s more dimensional as we go through the lettering and it reveals itself with the metallic sheen before settling into the white-on-red, well known Marvel logo, with the added flourish of the arrival and the announcement of the Studios at the bottom of the word Marvel.”

For the very first time, Marvel Studios now has its very own fanfare as well, something that helped make the new logo feel more substantial.

“My favorite part of it is, like all great studio logos, you need a fanfare, and we’d never had that before,” adds Feige. “We sometimes started the score of the movie, sometimes just had sound effects over it, sometimes had a song over it that leads into the beginning of the movie. So this is the first time that we have an actual, wonderful fanfare to accompany our logo. We turned to Brian Tyler to compose it for us, who this year has done two movies for us and two of what I believe to be two of the best scores in any Marvel Studios film, for ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Thor: The Dark World.’ So he thankfully was willing to and happy to create a spectacular standalone fanfare for us.”
