      Watch an interview with henry jackman, hans zimmer, thomas newman, alan silvestri, and steven price. Henry says it’s his favorite score and alan is one of his idols. I’m very certain he will use the main theme

      • BB says:

        Yeah … Just like he used the theme of Capitao America in the other two films he made (contains sarcasm)

        • Tom de Ruiter says:

          That wasn’t his choice. That was because Cap was in the modern age and not in the war. The Russo Brothers asked for different themes for each movie

          • BB says:

            Oh, yeah … He had no choice … So Winter Soldier got a score with several “themes” (many quotes here) from Hans Zimmer’s previous scores, was not that his choice? To make a generic and soulless score, was it not his choice?

  3. Boone says:

    This is really disappointing. I wanted Silvestri. Jackman is probably one of my least composer EVER. His scores for the Marvel movies are just souless.

  4. JC says:

    Can’t find any updates about it. But I hope he will use Silvestri’s themes in the movie.

  5. Ayub Salim says:

    Any update on the release date or tracklist?

    Separately, a version of Alan Silvestri’s ‘Predator’ theme is used in the movie at least three times.
