Marvel Studios has worked with a number of composers over the years, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn’t really developed a signature sound the way some other superhero franchise’s have (think John Williams’ “Superman” score, or Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer’s work on the Batman films). However, that may soon change.
Audiences that flocked this weekend to “Doctor Strange” were treated to a movie soundtrack by Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino, who confirmed today he’ll write the score for “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

The news arrives less than two months after it was announced that Giacchino would replace Alexandre Desplat as the composer of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” With “Doctor Strange,” and soon “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Giacchino has now provided music for Disney’s most profitable brands: Marvel, Pixar and “Star Wars.”
A prolific composer, Giacchino has scored a number of Pixar movies, notably “Ratatouille,” “The Incredibles” and “Up,” the latter of which won him his Oscar. He’s been the go-to composer for J.J. Abrams, scoring such television series as “Lost,” “Fringe” and “Alias,” as well as the films “Super 8,” “Star Trek” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.” His credits also include “Jurassic World,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and “Zootopia.”
Directed by Jon Watts, “Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Marisa Tomei as May Parker and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, joined by Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Michael Barbieri, Hannibal Buress, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus and Logan Marshall-Green.
The film opens July 7, 2017.
