Uh, these aren't original songs man. You just made up a title to attach to an exisiting movie related to it, placed a band/musical artist that you enjoy/heard of that you'd want to sing it and... that's it. Sorry but a title isn't a song. Heck even if you had lyrics to each of these songs if you didn't have any instrumentals or singing or you know a completed full audio track to go along with it, that's not really a song either. They're just... to be charitable I'd say ideas but even that seems a bit too strong for what this is.

As for the larger question of why Marvel doesn't have original songs for most of their movies (though some like Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 and Black Panther actually do have original songs attached to their soundtracks) it's because there's not really a purpose of doing so. Back in the 80's and 90's soundtracks for a movie and having a song attached to it was a way of promoting the movie and getting it more attention since music videos and bands attaching themselves to films was more of a beneficial thing to get one another attention. That really isn't as much of a major focus nowadays especially since these movies are strictly made (sans the spider man flicks) by Marvel studios themselves and they find no need to waste money on the whole big song promotion which is not something as useful today as it was years back. And granted yeah other studios do that and sometimes it can attract attention to your brand (for example my sister is a huge Twenty One Pilots fan so when I showed her the video for Heathens she was introduced to the idea that there was a Suicide Squad movie coming out that she would of otherwise not known about) but it's not really to the effect that it used to be and honestly not something that should be forced into a movie that may not need it. James Gunn wanted to do a goofy throwback song for Guardians 2 and the BP team obviously wanted their hip hop influenced soundtrack to have some actual new tunes attached for it but those are more the exceptions then the rules.

Well, if Marvel wanted to get more attention by creating music videos and attaching bands to them, they'd find a purpose of doing so. I made up these songs, so people who are interested in music can become Marvel fans too. That would've been another way for them to gain more money and inspired films to create original songs as they used to back in the old days.

Dude it's very possible in a couple of weeks Marvel could have the number one biggest worldwide film of all time, and have already had a film outdo Titanic something no one else other then James Cameron has ever done. You really think them having a catchy theme song for Endgame would of upped the box office for that?

Look in this day and age radio/music video singles are still used for some movies but aren't really as useful as they were back in the day and if a studio doesn't want to have a major song attached to their flick that's their own, they don't have to. Honestly Marvel probably makes more movie having licensed old songs to attach to their films that people are already familiar with and if worked well into the trailer of the film let alone the movie can attract probably more people then a new song. I mean isn't that one of the big reasons that attached people to Guardians of the Galaxy that until the first trailer came out most thought would be a joke that would spell Marvel's end and then started having more faith in the movie seeing what it was like especially in it's song choices? Really why make new songs when old ones work just as well if not better?

So yeah it's not going to happen outside of again maybe a couple of films that want to try having their own song but in general just expect to see already licensed stuff use and really trying to ask or complain otherwise when it's clear Marvel doesn't need that sort of strategy to be successful isn't going to make them want or feel the need to impliment it any.

Well, licensed songs or not, films are great. And that's why I wished Marvel always used original songs. It may not have resulted in a wave of original songs it once did in the 80s and 90s, but Marvel deserved to strictly make all their films and TV shows with original songs.

Uh "deserves" seems to imply that they should have the ability to do and don't. They clearly do have the ability to have original songs (which is why some properties do have original songs. Hell Jessica Jones season 2 has an original song) but for the most part just don't care to. They focus on just having original compositions and licensed songs and really if that's all they want to have then that's fine. It's clear for the most part they don't WANT to have original songs and really you should stop pressing the issue.

Seriously this isn't the 80's where huge big epic song track musical numbers are super important... and the era where Marvel actually did try once to have an Avengers movie that was a big huge musical with original songs that would of starred Bo Derek. And I'm not making that up either that almost happened. Check this out.


Yeah pretty clear that was a phase for Marvel and the main studio doesn't care to revisit that in anyway and you'll more likely see Sony be the ones with more original songs for their Marvel movies now then main Marvel itself.

Do you have King from the upcoming Disney Channel animated series "The Owl House" as your avatar?
2019 feels like a bad year to talk about SpongeBob in public. If you dare say anything bad about seasons 1-3 you’ll be destroyed. Also, there’s a controversy going on with this character: Nurse Bazooka
I wonder if there are any "zombie channels" within WarnerMedia's portfolio that can be flipped.
Ahh, finally, the weekend is here. And this isn't just any old weekend. This is the weekend that SpongeBob and Patrick go camping. Wouldn't it be great if they got lost in the woods and never came back?
