Captain America will battle the Red Skull to the music of composer Alan Silvestri

02.28.2011

While we still await something a little more meaty than the brief Super Bowl glimpse at CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, at least now we have some idea of of the soundtrack we'll hear when Marvel's hero is bouncing his bulletproof shield off bad guys' faces.

According to Film Music Reporter, composer Alan Silvestri will be providing the rousing score for the war in which Steve Rogers gets all super-serumed to fight the good fight.

Silvestri's last movie was THE A-TEAM, but a lot of movie fans will associate the industry veteran with his work from the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy, PREDATOR, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT and ROMANCING THE STONE.

Michael Giacchino and John Powell were previously rumored for the composer position on CAP.

Composer (and Disney regular) Alan Menken is also reportedly providing music in some capacity, possibly for scenes when Cap is being utilized as a USO spokesman/prop.

I really hope he dips into that same magic that he used to create Back to the Future, one of my favorite films scores of all time. His last few scores have been very paint by numbers, but I don't doubt that he still has the capacity for greatness. The only other person that could've done a better job with this was either Giacchino or John Williams

I like his work, but, just like James Horner, he does recycle his own work a lot lately... Can you find the 7 differences between his ERASER and GI JOE scores ?

Yes! What a perfect choice. I'm glad to see it go to him over Giacchino, and that's no slight against him. My favorite lesser-known score, Jerry Goldsmith's 'The Russia House.'

Score!

The Alien 3 score was a dramatic masterpiece. Batman 1989 is a classic romantic tour-de-force. Love the classic (sci-fi) elements of Queen's Flash Gordon ' DIIIIVE!!!!! '

Yeah baby!

Silvestri is a genius choice as he has an amazing talent for action-adventure themes. His scores for THE ABYSS and PREDATOR are two of my all-time favourites.

Cool choice. Silvestri has done some great scores, and The Abyss is his masterpiece.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Marvel and Joe Johnston REALLY ain't fucking around. I personally hoped they'd bring on Silvestri. They're making all the right moves.

A good orchestral score seems like a dying art. Giacchino's still kinda the new kid on the block and he's done some great work. Zimmer still has it, bit Silvestri, much like Elfman, hasn't done anything good in years.

Silvestri has written some great scores: Back to the Future trilogy, Abyss, Judge Dredd, Forrest Gump, Mummy Returns, Beowulf, etc. His last few scores haven't been as good, but Captain America gives him a great canvas to create some awesome heroic music.

as long as its better than...

his A-Team score. granted he did manage to slip a bit of the original theme in there...something that every established property-score should. Silvestri's best theme ever is "Predator".
