Exactly. He wasn't talking about the movie music, he was talking about how the movie would look and feel in comparison to the several other franchise movies that came before.

But he was making the point that he wanted to do his own, unique thing for the movie stylistically in both music and visual tone. What this also means is that he's already thought about the score quite a bit, and may have already talked to a composer.

I was blasting in the car on the freeway this on my way to work this morning. I hope to God that Newman gets the job. I love how he uses brass sections for percussion, it makes the whole score feel huge.

He didn't specifically say music. He was making an analogy for the movie.

It just struck me the other day that the "Who's We?" track from The Incredible Hulk Score (by Craig Armstrong) sounded rather 'Avengers' like. Primarily from 0:35 onwards.

Of course, it seems like 'Sledgehammer' from the Iron Man 2 Score is more commonly associated with The Avengers than anything else.

I think the beginning of this track from Kick Ass gives an Avengers vibe. Could be used as the main theme or ending track for the movie. Just the tune of it (about the first 0:45 seconds) sounds very Avenger-like, IMO.

They should just have one guy standing there with his synthesizer composing all the music right there during filming.

But in all seriousness I think just one composer should be hired to create the film score. And you know, something similar to this theme would be good for a Loki battle:

P.S. I just can't get enough of the theme songs for the various Elder Dragons in the Monster Hunter Games. They are just too epic! Love fighting Amatsumaguchi with its strongly Eastern inspired theme. Ceudeus is a boring fight but I love its themes though.

Oooh! I found another great song from the Monster Hunter franchise that would be a great inspiration for a triumphant song.

I've been watching my buffy season 7 dvds and everytime the dvd loads up and I hear this music I imagine scenes from The Avengers in my head. I hope the Avengers theme sounds as 'big' and loud as this theme does.

So when will we hear who is composing? Sooner? Or later?

Probably not until December. You usually get an official announcement for a composer sometime around the second trailer, but there's no set rule.

Unless somebody asks specifically who will be scoring the film at Comic-Con this week. It's anyone's guess. I'm betting David Newman won't get the job. Bet on somebody the studio is already comfortable with like John Powell, Giacchino, or Alexandre Desplat to be hired.

Don't post the whole link just the part after "?v="

Like this Avengers trailer link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuR3wSKeNOc but instead of putting the whole url in between yt I only put xuR3wSKeNOc, like so:

[ YT ]xuR3wSKeNOc[/ YT ] only without the spaces.

I put together this youtube video combining the themes to create what I think each score would ultimately sound like put together, it amazingly fits.

Oh dear. No MV/RC composer (excluding Powell) should be allowed anywhere near this. Besides Jackman has the XM:FC franchise. Though I still haven't heard the score (or seen the film itself yet) to XM:FC. Pretty sure Jackman's score to it is another generic, droning MV/RC sound design driven score and nothing much else.

If they want to get someone who's not cheap or expensive. They shouild get the underrated and talented ...




Marco Beltrami. He's very versatile and plus his mentor was the late Jerry Goldsmith. The guy's scored everything from the Scream quadrilogy to The Thing (pre-make), Don't be Alone in the Dark (remake), The Omen(2006), Mimic, Blade 2, Hellboy, 3:10 to Yuma, I, Robot, Live Free or Die Hard, Red Eye, The Hurt Locker, Max Payne, Terminator 3, Knowing, Underworld Evolution, and so on and so forth. The guy is very talented, imo. And could use a gig like this.

At least listen to score before you make a judgment.

I don't need to. When I go on to other forums that discuss the score. And they've pretty much gave the description I gave above about the score. Not that I'm surprised b/c Jackman is from the MV/RC club. Besides their scores are predictable for action movies anyways.

I loved the score for that film. That's all that matters.

Now instead of talking about XM:FC's generic score. Let's get back on topic on who should score The Avengers. I already mentioned Beltrami would be a good choice. Definitely better than Zimmer and his MV/RC buddies, imo.
