A much underated score in my opinion but then that is pretty obvious why that might be, the movie was a bomb at the B.O, Right?

Daniel, you're talking about this, aren't you?



'Cause we're not.


On a side note, this is actually a good score by Joel McNeely!

Sounds promising; still has a lot of his same generic action sound from the last 10 years, but something about t seems more fresh and uninhibited than most of his action stuff lately -- considering how well he hit Christmas Carol outta the park and how good these samples sound I'll probably check it out...

Edit: Could totally tell which one was for the Helicarrier without even looking at the track titles =P

Agreed!!

I am looking forward to hearing what Silvestri comes up with for this....I am not over-keen on the samples i have to admit (though how someone can call them "not outstanding or inventive" based on snippets of nothing is beyond me...I mean please!!), but looking forward to it nonetheless....Silvestri - even on autopilot - is better than a lot of film scoring around today.

First clip from 'The Avengers'

A hint of what Silvestri delivered for the film... not bad.


Alan Silvestri in action mode + Scarlett Johansson engaging in ass-kicking and name-taking = WIN. Also, the second time Silvestri's written a cue called "Tunnel Chase" (see also Back To The Future Part II).

Fourth time. The rejected Mission: Impossible score had a track called "Tunnel Chase".

This was one of my most anticipated scores of the year; really disappointed to see it condemned to a stinkin' lossy download. I don't recall Disney ever having offered any of its releases on CD-R either. Here's hoping that Intrada gets to do a limited edition CD run for us fans.

The samples are pretty neat though, with a pretty fun main theme and cool action cues as always from Mr. Silvestri.

Apologies; but at least it's the first time he's done it for a score that wasn't thrown out and isn't a sequel! Also, it might get physically released (as Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were).

Love the samples, especially the last track!

It better. I was expecting to buy a pressed copy next month.

I loved Doyle's THOR theme but do the others really have a stand out memorable theme? (IRON MAN, HULK)

For me, hands down, John Debney's theme for Iron Man 2. I have a strong sense we won't hear these themes again in Iron Man 3. frown

Greg Espinoza



Used to stunning effect in this track; (at the 5:08 mark)

John Ottman will probably do the third. He did Shane Black's previous film (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang).

Debney does great work, and the Iron Man 2 theme is good heroic one. That said, I'm sad that the film wasn't as well received as the first. I hope Debney can break away from those comedies he frequently scores (even though he does lift them a step higher with his music) and get some bigger film projects.

I tend to enjoy Ottman's work, especially his superhero output.

I'm not sure you can make that assumption based on one collaboration.

It was Black's only other directorial effort and he really liked what Ottman was able to do with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Much of Black's screenwriting efforts were scored by Michael Kamen (Joel Silver's favorite composer) but of course, he's no longer with us. And I can't see Marvel hiring a Kamen protege (though Ilan Eshkeri was briefly attached to Thor but left due to a busy schedule).

As did Thor. Both Thor and Captain America got pressed cds from Buena Vista Records, which I believe is owned by Disney. Even the latest Ghost Rider film got a CD-R. I am hoping the powers that be will sign off on a pressed score cd for what could be Marvel's biggest movie yet.

Listen to Andrew Stanton's Blu-Ray commentary on the "WALL•E" disc. Not only does he lengthily praise Thomas Newman, he says he can't imagine ever doing a film without Newman. And who did he choose to score "John Carter"? Michael Giacchino.

I'm just sayin'…

And? Each coins has two sides. Thomas Newman scored how many films towards the end of the year? 3 or 4? Perhaps he wasn´t available or wasn´t interested in the topic? Anyway... who cares?
If Black was that satisfied with Ottman on KKBB and if Ottman is available at that time and it won´t go against his involvement with Jack the Giant Killer, there is probably no reason why he shouldn´t score Iron 3. At least there would be finally some chance for a really good score in this franchise.
