Composer Danny Elfman To Rework THE AVENGERS Original Theme Into AGE OF ULTRON Score
If you were hoping the Age of Ultron score wouldn't stray too far from Alan Silvestri's Avengers theme, you won't be disappointed according to composer Danny Elfman. Hit the jump for details!
It's been known for quite some time now that Avengers: Age of Ultron will be scored by Brian Tyler (Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World) instead of the original composer Alan Silvistri. However, it wasn't known until late last month that four-time Academy Award-nominated composer Danny Elfman (Batman and Spider-Man) will be "contributing additional music" to the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel. Elfman recently spoke with 891 ABC Adelaide about re-imagining other people's scores which led to him discussing Age of Ultron. "I was doing the same thing actually just last week because I've contributed music to the new Avengers movie," revealed the composer. "I took part of Alan Silvestri's theme on the original [movie], which I really liked, and I pulled it into it new theme, which became kind of a hybrid. I really enjoyed that." So, despite new composers coming on board to score Avengers: Age of Ultron, it seems we'll still hear the great theme from the first movie at some point, if not throughout, the superhero calamity. Perhaps it will be when Earth's mightiest heroes assemble for the
mandatory money group shot. What do you think?
