Rogue One/Dr. Strange composer Michael Giacchino to score Spider-Man: Homecoming

Bad Robot and J.J. Abrams' go-to guy adds another blockbuster to his oeuvre

Sony has been pretty hush-hush about Spider-Man: Homecoming. We’re about nine months away from the blockbuster’s release and we’ve yet to see a proper teaser trailer or anything. That’s probably a good thing, though.

Nevertheless, here’s an update on the film: J.J. Abrams’ go-to composer Michael Giacchino confirmed this week on his own Twitter account that he’ll score the film:

Spider-Man is just the latest kernel for the future John Williams of popcorn cinema, joining a roster that will soon include Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and War For the Planet of the Apes. Did you see Dr. Strange? Yeah, he did that too.

Tom Holland stars as the titular webslinger, Marisa Tomei plays Aunt May, Michael Keaton, Logan Marshall-Green, and Bokeem Woodvine will serve as the villains, topping a delectable assortment of corollary personalities such as Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, and Tony Revolori.

Cop Car director Jon Watts directs from a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, while both Sony’s Amy Pascal and Marvel’s Kevin Feige serve as producers.

Spider-Man: Homecoming shoots its web on July 7th, 2017.
