Captain America: The First Avenger Composer Alan Silvestri To Score The Avengers

Captain America: The First Avenger Composer Alan Silvestri To Score The Avengers


Jay Cochran - November 16, 2011
Composer Alan Silvestri, who previously wrote the score for “Captain America: The First Avenger,” is set to return for “Marvel’s The Avengers”!

Silvestri, whose credits include “Night at the Museum” and “Disney’s A Christmas Carol,” will write and compose the original score for “Marvel’s The Avengers,” due to hit theaters on May 4, 2012.

“This is actually a very unique experience [for me],” relates Silvestri. “I’ve worked on films where there have been a number of stars and certainly worked on films where there have been characters of equal weight in terms of their level of importance and profile in the film, but this one is somewhat extreme in that regard because each of these characters has their own world and it’s a very different situation.

“It’s very challenging to look for a way to give everyone the weight and consideration they need, but at the same time the film is really about the coming together of these characters, which implies that there is this entity called the Avengers which really has to be representative of all of them together.”

After scoring last summer’s hit “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Silvestri already has a good deal of experience working within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I think to have been a part of the Marvel process is very helpful,” elaborates the composer. “To see how material evolves [and] how the film evolves gives the sense of how Marvel treats their characters, cares for them, and a bit of what that Marvel post-production process feels like.”

Though the film doesn’t hit theaters until May 4, 2012, Silvestri is already hard at work.

“It’s always an interesting process, of confronting the film and having a chance to live with it a bit and internalize it a little bit. I am just at the beginning stages of all of that right now and it’s feeling very good. I am looking forward to seeing the evolution of this film. Joss Whedon has really done something magnificent and I think everyone who loves Marvel and their films will especially enjoy this one.”

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--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 and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013; and “Thor 2” on November 15, 2013.
