American Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (Star Trek, Rogue One, Inside Out), is currently hard at work completing the score for Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming – The first solo outing for the rebooted franchise. And this past Friday (May 19th), Giacchino gave fans a small taster of what to expect from his contributions to the film.
Posting the video below on Twitter, Giacchino appears conducting an orchestra as it performs the classic Spider-Man theme from the 1960’s animated tv show. It’s certainly very reminiscent of the memorable song, but also has the glorious, classical spin that makes it all the more fitting for Spidey’s next big screen appearance. Recording for the soundtrack began on April 11th, whilst the completed movie is due to be released on July 5th in the UK.
A notably frequent collaborator with directors JJ Abrams, Brad Bird and Matt Reeves, Giacchino has several award nominations to his name. Along with Grammy, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Oscar wins for Up in 2010.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
