"Let the revels begin,
Let the fire be started,
We're dancing for the desperate,
and the brokenhearted..."

Jim Steinman wrote powerful chants that pop music is seriously lacking in. A single song can hold an entire movie's worth of story, rise, fall, and epic conclusion. "Stop your crying, hold on..."


What I think would be epic would be Marvel taking a song like "Tonight is What It Means To Be Young" and turning it into the template for a Young Avengers movie. I can picture Isiah shouting "Stop your crying, hold on" to Billy while Kate is standing in the back pf the convertible firing off arrows as America and Teddy knock the army of disposable bad guys off the car as Tom runs alongside with the McGuffin.
