Six superheroes from different walks of life all come together to battle the forces of evil in The Avengers. Writer/director Joss Whedon had a momentous task to try and find a way to make that conceit believable and he wasn’t the only one. The cinematographer had to make sure all those bright greens, reds, blues, blacks and purples all worked on screen together, the fight choreographer had to make sure a bevy of different styles all fit and the sound department had to make sure the sounds of rage, war, weapons, metal, lightning and more all combined into one cohesive soundtrack.
The SoundWorks Collection has just released their latest video discussing that exact point, featuring all the people responsible for making The Avengers sound big, bad ass and united. Check it out below.
Thanks to the SoundWorks Collection for this awesome video.

Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other. Taking center stage this time is Nick Fury (played once again by the note-perfect Samuel L. Jackson), leader of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury, along with former Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), recruits a super team to combat Thor’s ever-deceptive brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he brainwashes ace archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) while stealing a cosmic cube from an underground base. Thus the heroes must learn to work together alongside outlaw scientist Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), who can track down the artifact’s gamma signals when he’s not hulking out into a giant green monster. Show runner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) adapted and helmed the script by Zak Penn.
