Marvel’s Avengers Will Be Scored By Composer Bobby Tahouri
Marvel's Avengers is being composed by Bobby Tahouri, whose work some fans might recognize from games like Rise of the Tomb Raider.
In a new talk with Variety, it was revealed that composer Bobby Tahouri is taking on the scoring duties for Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers. Fans might recognize Tahouri’s work in games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. He’s also done film work for movies like Iron Man and the 2007 adaptation of Hitman. In short, the composer brings valuable experience to the table that should serve Square Enix well.

Tahouri spoke a little bit about how he built up the main theme and then used that to decide which instruments and sounds would fit around each character. Iron Man was his favorite to design, saying he loved developing “various guitars and bass tones to match his swagger and confidence”.
Marvel’s Avengers has been in the news quite a bit lately. It was recently revealed that Spider-Man is exclusive to PlayStation. As you might expect, that kicked up a storm of discussions on whether or not exclusive content should be in video games.
Additionally, members of the press recently got to sit down with a beta build of the game. Our team posted a lengthy discussion on YouTube, which you can check out. The short version is that it seems fine, but didn’t knock our socks off. Hopefully, the developers at Crystal Dynamics can shore a few things up before release.
Marvel’s Avengers is set to launch on September 4 for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One. Once next-gen consoles drop, the game will also make its way to PS4 and Xbox Series X.
