CONFIRMED: Captain America Composer Alan Silvestri IS Scoring The Avengers!
After rumors arose, an official source has confirmed that Alan Silvestri, who composed Captain America: The First Avenger, is re-teaming with Marvel on The Avengers. Check it out!
A few weeks ago, last month, it was rumored that in the latest issue of FSM Online, Captain America: The First Avenger composer, Alan Silvestri, was re-teaming with Marvel Studios on their Joss Whedon-directed blockbuster, The Avengers. There were also rumors that Silvestri's wife leaked the news early on Facebook.
Well now, Alan Silvestri's filmography has been updated on his official webpage, evidently confirming that he will indeed be taking charge of the musical arrangement for next summer's highly-anticipated assembly of Marvel's mightiest heroes and heroines.
Credits falling under The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger include Predators, Predators 2, The Mummy Returns, and two more that earned him Academy Award nominations - Forrest Gump and Polar Express. He's also famous for scoring the Back to the Future trilogy. Alan stated in the past that he'd be very happy to continue the relationship with Marvel.
Considering Marvel's The Avengers is in post-production, and has been for a little over a month, we can expect this news to be flaunted more publicly sooner than later. I for one think Alan Silvestri's Captain America score was Marvel Studios' best, behind 2008's Iron Man. The composition had a unique heroic element to it, which is perfect for a film full of heroes. Of course, being that this is The Avengers, I'm hoping the score will be Silvestri's best yet. What do you think?
Marvel's The Avengers is the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner with Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel's The Avengers will be released May 4, 2012.
