Michael Giacchino Gives SPIDER-MAN’s Classic TV Theme an Epic Symphonic Cover

Michael Giacchino Gives SPIDER-MAN’s Classic TV Theme an Epic Symphonic Cover

While Danny Elfman‘s music for the original Spider-Man trilogy has one of our favorite superhero themes, Spidey’s best known music is still the opening theme for the 1967 Spider-Man animated series. Paul Francis Webster and Bob Harris’ song is so catchy that it’s been featured in nearly every Spider-Man film to date. Apparently, Spider-Man: Homecoming composer Michael Giacchino is also a big fan of that tune.

Yesterday, Giacchino posted a clip of the Spider-Man: Homecoming scoring session and shared a piece of music that’s sure to stir the radioactive blood of any Spidey fan.

We don’t know for certain if Giacchino will incorporate the Spider-Man ’67 music in the final film, but it certainly lends itself well to this symphonic cover. One of the most common complaints about the Marvel movies is that the superheroes don’t have iconic themes anymore. We don’t necessarily agree with that, but Giacchino’s take on this piece of music could easily be the opening theme for the new movie.

That said, our preference would be to hear an original Spider-Man theme by Giacchino. He’s more than proven himself with his previous scores for Star Trek, Rogue One, The Incredibles, and Doctor Strange, as well as the music for all six seasons of Lost. If anyone can write a new musical legacy for Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, it’s Giacchino!
