Avengers: Infinity War Composer Teases The Film’s Quick Shifts In Tone


We’re now less than four weeks removed from witnessing Thanos utterly butcher the MCU with a complete lack of concern for Marvel’s decade-long effort, and fans couldn’t be more thrilled.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Infinity War will pit Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against the Mad Titan in what will predictably be an unforgettable moviegoing experience. Unfortunately, for AT LEAST ONE member of the supergroup though, the end of their tenure is extremely nigh.

From what we’ve seen thus far, Infinity War will be an emotional and entertaining large-scale blockbuster the likes of which enthusiasts have never received from the studio. The film’s plot has been kept tightly under wraps and is obviously very important to Marvel and all involved. So much so that the co-directors even issued a statement yesterday urging fans to refrain from spoiling the movie. That is, once it’s officially released, of course, later this month.

To tide you over until that day comes, though, Alan Silvestri, composer of the unmistakable Avengers theme, Captain America: The First Avenger and Infinity War, recently discussed scoring the soon-to-be mega-hit with The Hollywood Reporter, saying the following:

“It’s funny because I feel like everything is still shaking… the dust hasn’t quite settled just yet. I wrapped Infinity War yesterday, and it was a really different experience than anything I’d done before, especially in regard to the approach and balancing quick shifts in tone.”

The “quick shifts in tone” Silvestri’s referring to should come as no surprise considering Infinity War has quite prominently boasted about its multitude of leading characters, all of whom will undoubtedly have subplots. What’s disconcerting is Anthony and Joe Russo’s ability to make Avengers: Infinity War coherent. The brothers have shown no reason to suspect anything other than success, but juggling 23 heroes is a lot to ask of anyone.

Will they be able to pull it off? We’ll find out in just a few weeks, as the pic hits theaters on April 27th.
