Composer Brian Tyler acknowledged that the film's score needed to be darker and more melodic than Ramin Djawadi and John Debney's previous scores, citing the change in Tony Stark's life following the events of The Avengers as the catalyst.[5]

The score was recorded at Abbey Road Studios by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.[5]
