Back in March 2014, we reported that Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World composer Brian Tyler has been set to provide the score for the Marvel Phase Two sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some fans may have been a bit disappointed, though, since that meant composer Alan Silvestri, who created the iconic Avengers theme in Marvel's The Avengers, wouldn't be back for the sequel. When Marvel unveiled the official poster last month, it was revealed that Danny Elfman was credited with creating "additional music" for the sequel, and during an interview with 891 ABC Adelaide, the composer revealed he is actually reworking Alan Silvestri's original Avengers theme. Here's what he had to say below.
"I was doing the same thing actually just last week because I've contributed music to the new Avengers movie. I took part of Alan Silvestri's theme on the original [movie], which I really liked, and I pulled it into it the new theme, which became kind of a hybrid. I really enjoyed that."
Fans will remember the original Alan Silvestri theme during the memorable 360-degree group shot of all the Avengers during the climactic New York City battle in Marvel's The Avengers. It seems that elements of that theme will be intact for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we'll have to wait and see how it turns out. Are you looking forward to Danny Elfman's musical contributions in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Let us know what you think below.
