Get ready for lots of low-pitched fog horn sounds and drawn out waaaaamps in the new Spider-Man movie. The next reboot of the web slinging hero will be scored by the same man who handled the score for the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story adventure. Based on early trailers of the latter, the Marvel movie might be a bit bombastic in its music and have the perfect guy to pump up the more epic parts of Peter Parker’s exploits.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige accidentally let the news slip at a recent Q&A after he forgot that it wasn’t announced quite yet. At least it wasn’t massive, top secret news like who the primary villain will be or whether Tom Holland and Zendaya are going to break it down to some old school hip hop while chilling in Queens. Both very important things that the fans need to know. Giacchino confirmed the news himself on Twitter on Sunday.
The composer has also score family movies like Up and The Incredibles and Marvel’s own Doctor Strange. He won a boatload of awards for Up so has definitely proven that he can be jaunty and joyful when necessary. Because most of the details about Homecoming are still under wraps, there’s no telling for sure whether Giacchino will need to use his happier composing skills to work or not for this project. Of course, it’s a Marvel movie, so there will probably be at least one romantic scene that breaks hearts, one that puts them back together, a big hero versus antagonist action scene, and one accomplished climax where the hero wins.
Assuming all of those pieces will find their way into Marvel’s next big reboot bet, Giacchino will have his work cut out for him to make the movie’s score varied yet suitably fun.
