Personally, I have a feeling that SOUNDGARDEN is a Tony Stark choice. We know that IRON MAN digs AC/DC, so why not some SG?
The soundtrack will be released on May 1st, while the movie hits theaters on May 4th. A press release about the soundtrack is said to be arriving in the days ahead. Stay tuned!
THE AVENGERS assemble... with SOUNDGARDEN!Written by James Zahn
Well, this certainly came out of the blue this morning... and The Rock Father™ approves.
I'm still a little weirded out when I see MARVEL merchandise inside THE DISNEY STORE (even though I love both brands), but it's even weirder when someone from Disney sends you a preview of brand-NEW music from SOUNDGARDEN via AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture. Would you like to hear a 22-second snippet of the first new SOUNDGARDEN single in 15 years? S.H.I.E.L.D. commands you to read on... and Live to Rise.
