    After watching the new Avenger's trailer, I realized this film is in a unique position in terms of the score. Most of the other Marvel films had distinct scores written by different composers (Silvestri, Djawadi, Doyle, Armstrong, etc). Avengers itself is scored by Silvestri. I'm assuming he'll be using the scores from the other films as well...?

    At any rate, I'm looking forward to see (or rather, hear) how it turns out.

    I suspect he will not be using the other scores. None of the Marvel scores has shared any musical ideas, really. This one might bear some similarity to Captain America, but I suspect instead of a leitmotivic approach to scoring all the characters he'll basically build the score around one big Avengers theme.

    Well that would be a shame... to say the least. He could really do a number (no pun intended...) with all the themes combined.

    And I was rather partial to Thor's theme.

    I love the Hellicarrier theme and The end credits theme. Just awesome. They help me write my story which is a follow-up to the Avengers and to my story that I finished writing a while back.

    I'm going to need to give it a listen. I usually like Silvestri's scores, and it's been awhile since I bought any scores, so...yeah. :p

    Well, the end credits track is always going to be the most epic, because it's the theme. :p

    Unless your movie is AOTC. The end credits to that has about 20 seconds of fun right at the end. :p

    I agree that the theme to the Avengers is great. There's a lot of great music on this score. Though, nothing beats BTTF's theme as Silvestri's crowning achievement.
