[lotr characters] A gift I will give you. For I am the daughter of Elrond. I shall not go with him now when he departs to the Havens; for mine is the choice of Lúthien, and as she so have I chosen, both the sweet and the bitter.

                            I’ll take care of you.

John Ottman is the first composer to score more than one movie of the X-Men series, having scored X2 and returning for Days of Future Past. The main theme samples what is perhaps the most well known piece of music in the franchise, X-Men 2's own opening theme (“Suite from X2”).

Ottman has mentioned being inspired by Michael Kamen’s work in the first X-Men film, as well as X-Men: the Animated Series’ theme song for its writing.
