Although we didn’t know much about the new project, our source did advise us that it would surface for the holiday season this year and would involve a new look for the team. The source also advised us that the new project would not be based in video, but teased that it will present the team in a whole new form.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' SoundtrackYesterday, Marvel released details for the upcoming original motion picture soundtrack for Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) which will be available to own digitally on April 28 and on physical CD on May 19 (now available for pre-order).

In all, 28 tracks from the score were release (listed below). And while one track isn’t actually in the film (Danny Elfman’s ‘Heroes’), we were greeted with another surprise when a copy of the soundtrack landed on our virtual doorstep: a 29th track. It’s scored by Elfman and its overly complicated title is: ‘New Avengers – Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and it clocks in at 3:09, making it one of the longest tracks on the score. We have reached out to Hollywood Records for clarification and will update with additional information as it becomes available to us.
