In the 1960s, Marvel Comics' great innovation was to tell stories about super heroes who worried and bickered while they saved the world. These very human super humans such as Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four were characters readers cared about and identified with. Marvel has gradually brought more and more of their costumed heroes to the silver screen, and the new movie, "The Avengers," brings together several in one film.
David Garland offers highlights from Alan Silvestri's score for "The Avengers," plus music from other Marvel-ous movies including "Captain America," "Thor," "The Hulk" and others. This show will air at approximately 9:10 pm, right after the conclusion of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra live from Carnegie Hall.
