John Williams would be ideal. I don't think it's gonna happen though, so if I were to suggest a composer I both like and think actually has a chance of doing it... Silvestri has been mentioned. I would've preferred him for Thor, but he could probably do will with Cap as well.

The score HAS...HAS to have a hum to it and be powerful. Whoever does compose, please make it a memorable score.

Iron Man had a semi memorable score, Iron Man 2...background music. Cap and Thor need memorable scores damnit!

James Newton Howard's my favorite, so I just have to jump in and point out that he doesn't always do "off-center" stuff like what he does for Shyamalan or Batman or Michael Clayton, etc.. He's done some fantastic, old-fashioned, rousing, fun scores in the past. Problem is, they're usually for less-than-stellar movies, lol, so they get overlooked. A few examples:

(skip to about 1:20)

I just LOVE his theme for King Kong that starts at about 3:50 onwards in this cue:

And this may not be considered "fun" or "rousing," but it's about as old-school gorgeous as they get, imo:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


So yeah. He's not always dark or "off-center." He can be a very old-fashioned or traditional composer when he wants to be. *steps off soap box*

To be honest, I don't think all these big names like Giaconno and Newton Howard are the sort of people Marvel's looking at for Captain America. They tend to go for lesser known composers.

Mark Mancina would be a good choice, he knows how to do "dramatic" and action.

Mark Snow, he worked close with Michael Kamen (rip) and that guy has had memorible scores.

But those are just me. Seems like since Marvel Studios has taken over, the themes haven't become as obvious as in other movies i.e Spider-Man, Daredevil, Hulk.

I mean you hear them now, but it more blends with whats going on, as opposed to the obvious themes in certain parts of the other flicks.
That could just be me though.

I'm still in the James Horner camp for this. The music in a Cap movie needs to be epic and awesome with a patriotic flare. After hearing Horner's Apollo 13 soundtrack, I'm still convinced he would do an awesome job. But failing to get him, plenty of other suggestions sound good as well.

I don't care for Tyler Bates. And to Marvel's credit, they DID get John Debney for Iron Man 2. Joe Johnston usually works with big names.

It needs to have a memorable theme.

I honestly can't remember any music from the Iron Mans or Incredible Hulk.

As silly as it sounds, this is the theme that actually pushed me to go see the new Star Trek movie, despite all my misgivings about it beforehand. It just made everything that much more Epic. I would love to see it used in a trailer for cap as well (or a similar theme) I imagine story footage of WWII, Steve getting picked to be part of the project, shots of Erskine, Zola, and pre Skull Schmidt before the moment Steve gets the serum and being told it could be fatal. Cut to black and right around where the music picks back up again(1:30ish in the video) show Cap (somewhat obscured by smoke) bounding across the battlefield, reminiscent of that scene in superman returns where young Clark is leaping across the screen (only, y'know, less exagerrated, but still impressive by human standards). they bunch of teasing action and character shots before the end where they show Skull finding the Cube.movie title. End with the shot of Cap throwing the shield. (or doing something ridiculously impressive like stopping a tank shell)
I'd get goosebumps if that were set to this theme. When I saw it used for Star Trek I got the whole "can't wait to see it now" vibe.

I think Elfman would know that Cap. isn't quirky and doesn't need to be. Did Proof of Life, The Kingdom, and Terminator Salvation sound quirky to you ?

Come on. Give the man more credit than that.

I hate to say it but I think Silvestri's best days are behind him. He hasn't really impressed me since Van Helsing. Night at the Museum was average at best. Some good cues here and there but overall typical Silvestri. Beowulf was good nothing really special, but I expected a lot out of that score. Especially the epic quality of that character, scope, animation, and with his main collaborator at the helm. GIJOE was also pretty average and had a few highlights but the dramatic cues (which there is very little of) were more listenable than his action cues which was surprising in a disappointing way. I haven't heard or seen A-Team yet but heard negative things about Silvestri's score as well as the film itself.

This is the point I'm trying to make, when a composer is off his game usually they recover and get back in the game. Silvestri hasn't been doing that at all lately. You think with GIJOE and the A-Team it would be a walk in a park for Silvestri. Well it is in a negative way. It's like he's too laid back and not challenging himself as much. A lot of the stuff sounds like something he can write in his sleep. Seriously.

It really hurts to say that about Silvestri. But I believe it to be true. So if he ends up scoring Cap. (doubtful) Johnston will have to push him hard to get him back on his feet again. I really want Silvestri writing these types of scores that are now being taken over by Zimmer and his MV/RC crew, so he can show us why we like his music in the first place. That Silvestri has been absent for a while now, IMO.

^ I thought Silvestri's score for Beowulf was fantastic. Meh.

Either way, another choice I'd probably be happy with is Ed Shearmur... if he goes the route he did with Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

I disagree - when Kent mentioned it, I was able to instantly recall it, even though I haven't seen the movie or listened to the soundtrack since its theatrical run. I think that makes it memorable. Or annoyingly catchy, lol. Either way, it's certainly a "hummable theme." Anyway, while he wouldn't be my first choice, I'd be ok with Shearmur as composer for this. I'd much prefer him over Tyler Bates, at any rate.

Same goes for Silvestri and Elfman, even though I don't think either of them are great for Cap, so that really speaks more to how much I don't want Bates more than anything else.

I hope there's a lot of swing music playing in the movie, especially at the USO show and other events - eg in music halls, over the radio etc. That would add an authentic feel and give the film a great soundtrack. Music along the lines of Glenn Miller would be cool.

I'd be suprised if we didn't get some of that to help set the mood of the era. One thing JJ's been very consistently good at in his films is making them feel authentic to their time periods.

Danny Elfman can create an amazing, non quirky score, when he wants to, he just hasn't done anything of note for a long time. It's like his heart isn't in it anymore.

I would have to say Hans Zimmer, purely because I think he's become the new go to guy for big blockbuster scores, but unlike John Williams, he actually has range. I'm sorry, I know John Williams scored alot of films that are close to our hearts, but he is just so outdated now. He can't create new themes for the life of him (Sure HP was kinda different, but its all the bridging and atmos music that is just repeated over and over again). I think people like him because they just connect him to their childhood films/themes, but he is nowhere near the standard of other composers like Zimmer.

Also, John Ottman would be quite good. He does really good evocative reflective stuff as well as the big, epic strings stuff.
