Word of his involvement first got out earlier this week after a Reddit user pointed to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, who allegedly let the news slip during a Doctor Strange screening and Q&A event. Giacchino then confirmed the news himself over social media on Sunday, tweeting, “The rumors are true…” along with the title treatment for the Spider-Man film.
Giacchino’s latest work for a Marvel movie can be heard with Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme. He also composed music for Zootopia, Inside Out, and Tomorrowland, as well as Jurassic World and Star Trek Beyond.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, features Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, and Jon Favreau also feature.
In addition to Spider-Man, set for release on July 7, 2017, Giacchino will also score War for the Planet of the Apes, The Incredibles 2, and The Book of Henry.
