Composer Brian Tyler has signed on to craft the score for Marvel's Phase Two sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. The musician has previously worked with Marvel Studios on last year's Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World.
Back in December, a Film Score Monthly message board user revealed that he had signed on, but that report wasn't confirmed until now. Brian Tyler also made the music for Marvel's TV special Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe, which aired on ABC this past Tuesday.
Joss Whedon is directing Avengers: Age of Ultron from his own script, with Marvel's The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) all slated to return, along with new cast members James Spader (Ultron), Thomas Kretschmann (Baron Von Strucker), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch). Production is scheduled to begin next month in London, with shooting also taking place in South Africa, Northern Italy and South Korea.
Brian Tyler's other composing credits include Fast Five, Now You See Me and upcoming projects such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Into the Storm and Fast & Furious 7. He also composed the main theme songs for TV shows such as Transformers: Prime, Hawaii Five-0 and Sleepy Hollow.
