RUMOR: Captain America's Alan Silvestri Also Hired To Score The Avengers?
It seems as if the Captain America: The First Avenger composer has been hired by Marvel Studios to create the score for The Avengers! Hit the jump for all of the details...
According to "mclay18" over on the SuperHeroHype Forums, it looks as if Captain America: The First Avenger composer Alan Silvestri has also been hired by Marvel Studios to work on the score for The Avengers. Unfortunately, I don't have access to either FSM Online or Sandra Silvestri's Facebook page (I'm working on it!) so you'll have to take this news with a pinch of salt for time being.
I think a lot of you can rest easily. The latest issue of FSM Online (which is reliable) says that Alan Silvestri (Captain America) will score The Avengers. I don't have a subscription to FSM Online, but I think Silvestri's wife also leaked the news too on her FB page.
If true, I'm pleased with this news. While it may not seem like a good idea to hire a composer who has previously worked on one of The Avengers' characters solo films, his score for Captain America: The First Avenger was fantastic in my opinion and I'm very excited to see what he might bring to the table for the 2012 superhero team-up. Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
