‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Scores ‘Thor’ Composer

Composer Alan Silvestri will not be reuniting with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes when The Avengers: Age of Ultron assembles next year. But the Avengers sequel’s score will still have familiar notes for Marvel fans, thanks to Brian Tyler.

Tyler, the composer of Thor: The Dark World and the recent TV special Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe, has been tapped to score Age of Ultron for director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios.

Outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tyler’s scores have been heard in numerous Fast and Furious films, as well as the Expendables movies. The composer’s other upcoming credits include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Avengers: Age of Ultron assembles in theaters on May 1, 2015.

    “Avengers: Age of Ultron ‘scores’ Thor composer.” I see what you did there. I trust Marvel’s judgement, but I admit any Avengers composer announcement was going to be a letdown to me ever since I read Joss Whedon say in some interview that a John Williams score is at the top of his future movie dream list (or however he worded it.)

    So happy with this announcement! His Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 scores were fantastic and he, more than any of the young composers, truly understands the use of themes and live orchestra. I also love that Tyler is a protege of the greatest of all time (in my opinion) John Williams. Looking forward to this!

    I hope he builds on from the Avengers Main Theme.

    It has the potential (with some more parts) to grow as memorable as other classic Hollywood themes like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, which it seems they are going for as they would want John Williams. Alan Silvestri also has that strong theming going on , like his Back to the Future and Forest Gump themes.
