Despite Black Panther taking the Oscar for Best Original Score over the weekend, the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t exactly known for its memorable music, but one of the biggest exceptions is still the main theme for the Avengers movies, written by Academy Award nominee Alan Silvestri. And with Avengers: Endgame just two months away from release, it seems that the composer is back in the studio to provide a fresh soundtrack for Marvel’s Phase 3 finale.
Silvestri recently took to Instagram with a photo and a caption reflecting on “another incredible day” working on the Avengers: Infinity War sequel. And while the post reveals nothing new about the content of the film itself, it’s still nice to get a little update on the movie’s journey to completion.
Evidently, the film’s theatrical cut isn’t finished quite yet, though Endgame has already had a few test screenings, and according to directors Anthony and Joe Russo, the movie has so far received a “great response” from early viewers. In fact, while their latest update on the feature’s runtime has it at 3 hours, the brothers claimed earlier this month that almost none of their test viewers have felt the need to get up to go to the bathroom.
From the sound of things, the Russo Brothers’ next film will almost certainly be the MCU’s longest feature to date, though so far, the amount of footage we’ve seen from it adds up to less than 3 minutes. For what it’s worth, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently suggested that another trailer could be dropping soon, but whatever promotion is still headed our way, most fans won’t need further convincing to check out Avengers: Endgame when it hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
