For those of you who saw CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and were hoping for a more epic and classical sound regarding the score (sorry Henry Jackman!), you can rest assured that the Russo brothers will be rectifying this going forward. AlanSilvestri.com has just reported that (surprise) Alan Silvestri will return to score both INFINITY WAR films. The man is no stranger to Marvel, having created the Captain America theme in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and going on to score Joss Whedon's first AVENGERS film.

I'll be the first to tell you that most Marvel scores aren't particularly memorable, but I do have a soft spot for Silvestri's theme for Cap, even if it doesn't rank up there with the best of the man's work. Still, a composer's relationship with his director(s) makes all the difference. Look at John Williams' scores for the first two Harry Potter films, and then PRISONER OF AZKABAN (of which Alfonso Cuaron directed). I'm hoping that the Russos will bring Silvestri to his A-game!

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART I will open in theaters on May 4, 2018.

I really loved Henry Jackman's scores for Winter Soldier and Civil War. Especially Civil War. I've never been the biggest fan of Silvestri. I do enjoy his theme for Avengers, but I've always found that his music often sounds similar to his other soundtracks. I do wish Marvel would get better with their musical consistency. It is something that Bryan Tyler talked about when it came to Phase 2, given that he did the scores for Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. But i

But i wish the Russo's would have stuck with Jackman, cause seriously his MCU scores are leagues better than anything else he's done (as well as his Magneto theme from First Class). As far as the future MCU soundtracks go, I'm very much looking forward to Michael Giacchino's Doctor Strange score.

Henry Jackman made a huge step up from Winter Soldier to Civil War, but I am so glad that Silvestri is back!
Like I said for a previous article, he made the two most memorable themes the MCU have so far (the one for Cap, and the Avengers' theme). It's good to finally have some musical consistency in this awesome franchise!

I was afraid Jackman was going to be scoring them. His Cap scores were pretty forgettable (but I really enjoyed his First Class score). Silvestri's stuff in the MCU has been the best so far. The only other scores I've really liked were Craig Armstrong's Incredible Hulk and Brian Tyler's Iron Man 3.

Hopefully Brian Tyler be won't forced onto the production again (not like I have a problem with him, but...).
