Ant-Man and the Wasp (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is the film score for the Marvel Studios film Ant-Man and the Wasp. The score was composed by Christophe Beck. Hollywood Records released the album digitally on July 6, 2018.

Background

In June 2017, Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed confirmed that Christophe Beck, who composed the score for Ant-Man, would return for Ant-Man and the Wasp.[1] Beck reprised his main theme from Ant-Man, and also wrote a new one for Hope van Dyne / Wasp that he wanted to be "high energy" and show that she is more certain of her abilities than Scott Lang / Ant-Man. When choosing between these themes for specific scenes throughout the film, Beck tried to choose the Wasp theme more often so there would be "enough newness in the score to feel like it’s going new places, and isn’t just some retread."[2] Hollywood Records and Marvel Music released the soundtrack album digitally on July 6, 2018.[3]

In April 2019 Mondo released a vinyl album (2XLP) "Featuring 14 previously unreleased bonus tracks." This album is to be the first of several Marvel soundtracks released on vinyl in limited numbers. Ant-Man and the Wasp's score, for example, only released 1,000 copies with original artwork and options on vinyl record album coloring.[4]
