Michael Giacchino is a ridiculously busy composer these days. You most recently heard his work on the Doctor Strange soundtrack this past week, even as he’s currently hard at work composing the score for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Before that, his Pixar scores made you feel a variety of emotions, all while nabbing him a heap of awards.
On top of ALL that, he’s now going to be handling the score for Marvel/Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. The initial news came from none other than Marvel Studios head himself, Kevin Feige. During a Q&A following a screening of Doctor Strange, Marvel’s Chief mentioned the next place you’ll hear Michael Giacchino’s work (in the Marvel universe) would be for Spider-Man: Homecoming, quickly following up with, “We announced that, right? I really hope we announced that.”

Turns out, it hadn’t been formally announced yet! Soon after the slip-up, however, the composer himself took to his Twitter to confirm the information. I love the choice and think he’s a solid composer for Spider-Man. My only regret is that Hans Zimmer’s score from the Amazing films will be lost, as that was one of the best aspects of those movies. Between all of these projects, Giacchino has quickly become one of the most recognizable working composers in the industry today. Expect to be hearing more from him soon.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
