It's all about what the director and producers want. I enjoyed Tyler's Battle: LA score, but I disagree on that he always delivers bombastic action scores. I'll agree that he relies a bit too much on electronics and percussion nowadays, but Tyler is flexible. He can deliver subtle, suspenseful music and better-arranged action music. (It's just a lot of the producers he works with demand that kind of sound. But at least he composes and conducts all his music when he can.)

When I heard David Newman was scoring Whedon's Serenity, I was skeptical. But his score was surprisingly different and good... so if Tyler gets the Avengers gig I'm sure he'll tone down his excesses and such.
