When The Avengers debuted in 2012, there were plenty of exciting and memorable moments that occurred throughout the duration of the film. One moment sticks out for everyone as one of the greatest moments in MCU history, strictly because we were seeing it for the first time. That moment is the famous circling shot of the Avengers grouped together for the first time, and while the mere sight of this is exciting, the scene was given a boost thanks to the now iconic music playing behind it.
The man responsible for that music is Alan Silvestri, who scored the entire film following his Marvel debut with Captain America: The First Avenger. When the Avengers next gathered in Avengers: Age of Ultron however, Silvestri’s score was not used again with Brian Tyler and Danny Elfman taking over the duties of composing. With the Russo brothers set to direct the next Avengers films, thinking that their Marvel regular Henry Jackman would stay with them would have made sense, but that is not the case after all.
Silvestri has announced on his website that he will be scoring both Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2! This is some very exciting news as I have had the image of Silvestri’s original Avengers score playing over a sweeping shot of every hero in the MCU ending with a bruised and battered Captain America finally yelling out “Avengers, Assemble!” running through my head ever since the credits rolled on Civil War. Let us know if you are excited for Silvestri to return in the comments below!
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is scheduled to hit theaters May 4, 2018. Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2019.
