Alan Silvestri Returning To Score ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Part I & II

Alan Silvestri Avengers IWWhile many might have assumed that with the Russo Brothers directing the next two installments, that might also mean that frequent collaborator Henry Jackman might be returning as well to provide the film’s score. Well, that’s not going to be the case as Alan Silvestri, who previously provided to the score for Captain America: The First Avenger & The Avengers, announced earlier today that he would be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and scoring the upcoming two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

While the recent Marvel Studios releases have been great, they have been lacking a bit in the score department other than The Winter Soldier). Personally, I’m a big fan of Silvestri’s main theme from The Avengers, so here’s hoping that Silvestri will bring his A-game and we get some memorable pieces for these upcoming films as well. If it’s been awhile since you’ve heard his Avengers theme, check it out in the video below and let us know what you think about this news in the comments section afterwards.

Avengers: Infinity War Part I is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 4, 2018 followed by Avengers: Infinity War Part II on  May 3, 2019.

    Danny Elfman should score a Marvel film too

  • “… they have been lacking a bit in the score department other than The Winter Soldier.”

    That’s something with which I couldn’t disagree more.

    Bryan Tyler’s work on Iron Man 3 (the best of any Marvel score) and on Thor: The Dark World was pretty freaking fantastic. While I was originally disappointed that Patrick Doyle wasn’t brought back to score the second Thor film, I found Tyler’s main and secondary themes to be better, as well has his handling of Friga’s funeral scene to be heartrending. And his work on Iron Man Three, particularly the end credits, was inspired.

    Themes from those scores get much more replay for me than any other, even Jackman’s great work on The Winter Soldier.

    If anything, Jackman’s score for Civil War was a disappointment, as was Marvel’s decision to bring in Danny Elfman to mess with whatever Tyler wanted to do on Utron.

    I also really enjoyed Christophe Beck’s score for Ant-Man, which was a ton of musical fun.

      I love the scores, but they really need recognizable themes for the characters, and I think Silvestri hit closest to that with the Avengers theme. Aside from Iron Man (IM3 specifically), Winter Soldier, and Cap, I couldn’t really hum the themes of any of the characters.

      Also props for pointing out Frigga’s funeral scene. It’s one of my favorite MCU moments.

      Yeah, Thor: The Dark World’s film score was downright beautiful.

    Good. Henry Jackman is a hack.

    I like what Tyler Bates has been doing with James Gunn. Both have been working together since Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead. Cool guy, cool style. Can’t wait to hear his stuff for GotG2.

    But then there are directors that bring their own guys in who they always work with. For example: Tim Burton/Danny Elfman Steven Spielberg/John Williams. Robert Zemeckis/Alan Silvestri.. Chris Nolan/Hans Zimmer.
