You prefer Debney's Iron Man theme, so why post the Captain America march then?

Isn't John Williams semi-retired now anyway?

I would enjoy to hear Craig Armstrong's themes for Hulk, he did a magnificent job, also Djawadi had a nice fun theme for Iron Man. If those themes are reprised it would be fun, but however composes needs to create a really iconic and memorable Avengers theme.

Agreed. The theme needs to stand alongside such classics as Williams Superman/Star Wars/Indy theme, Courage's Star Trek theme, and many others.

Jablonksy did a pretty damn good job on Gears of War so i wouldnt mind him doing it.

Trevor Rabin would also be my left field choice because of this song:

Silvestri also did a great job on Captain America so if they brought him in i'd be satisfied.

I don't know if I suggested him (or if anyone else did), but I think someone like Brian Tyler would be one of the composers Marvel Studios could ask for The Avengers. Tyler's had some great work in bad movies. He has that MV/RC influence in some of his work, but he can write a good theme or two.

Not to mention he's not averse to incorporating other composers' themes into sequel scores he does. Rambo and The Final Destination both incorporated Goldsmith and Walker's themes from the previous films into his scores. If he gets the gig, I'm pretty sure he'll use Silvestri's CA theme and Doyle's Thor theme in the film.

No offense, but Tyler is a blatant RC rip-off, without any of the originality. I never thought I'd say this, but he's even worse than Jablonsky. At least his themes are likable.

Tyler's just beats you over the head with its bombasticy. His score to B:LA just drove me insane.

If ends up doing it (which I highly doubt, but still, let's let this hypothetical situation be pondered for a moment), I would seriously consider not seeing the film. Battle: Los Angeles was one of the worst film experiences I've had in some time, and even though I love Whedon and all of the actors involved... just... no.

That said, I actually enjoy his stuff when it isn't that generic action music. His quieter work on Bangkok Dangerous was actually quite soothing.

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.

Personally, I hope they get Alan Silvestri to score the film. His score for CA:TFA was fantastic and totally suited the mood of the film and the iconic nature of the character. Silvestri has definitely grown as a composer over the last three decades. At one time I found that many of his scores shared the same thematic elements, which made them all sound similar. However, his recent work has been very distinctive, drawing less from the motifs he used in his earlier scores. He has always done great work with action films, so I believe that he would be ideally suited to The Avengers, if he is available. However, I'm sure that whoever is chosen will do a great job.

Unless it's Elfman. That guy is played.

I actually wouldn't mind Silvestri scoring this one again. I do agree with everyone saying that this film needs to own all other scores from the solo movies, and still stand out as its own unique piece, so a memorable theme is needed: one that I can hum along to days after I hear it in the film

Look at what he's already listed for, there's no way he could fit TA in his schedule.

After seeing all the footage today of Cap and Thor fighting side by side, I really hope we get an epic and rousing score to accompany this movie. Silvestri wouldn't be bad, and he could incorporate his Cap theme when he's taking on those villains by himself at first.

Elfman is far from played. Last year he had three scores released. All were first rate to my ears. The Wolfman(2010) Alice in Wonderland (2010), and The Next Three Days. Those three scores couldn't sound anymore different from each other. A lot of the scores Elfman wrote in the last decade I enjoyed a great deal more than Silvestri's output of the same decade. Doesn't matter anyway since Elfman's booked next year.

Gregson Williams isn't any better,imo. If they want The Avengers to sound like Transformers and pretty much every MV/RC score written for action movies these days. Then by all means hire Jablonsky. But if they want something creative, original, and something that fits The Avengers and it's film. Then look elsewhere. By that I mean stay away from MV/RC composers (excluding Powell).

I agree. Gregson-Williams' score to Wolverine was very sub-par compared to the first three films, or even First Class.

I still think it might be a good idea to bring Djawadi back. Loved his score for Iron Man, and I'd be interested to see what he could do with something with the sheer scope and size of Avengers. Game of Thrones showed he could do emotional work, so I have no doubts that he is qualified.
