Silvestri's best work is grand and sweeping, with great themes, something Jackman's scores lack.
Silvestri's best work was in the past for Back To The Future and Predator and yeah even The Delta Force with Chuck Norris.
If Jackman's score can be as good as the one for X-Men First Class then I can't wait for it.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
