Michael Giacchino is a composer known for a range of films ranging from At the top, which won him an Oscar, to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There’s a lot to look forward to from Giacchino, who is composing the next films. The batman, Jurassic World: Dominion, and Thor: Love and Thunder. Thor’s fourth film isn’t Giacchino’s first gig with Marvel Studios. He previously composed the scores of Doctor strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and more recently, Spider-Man: No Path Home. According to a new report from The Illuminerdi, it’s possible that Giacchino will take on a new role with Marvel. If the rumors are true, the composer could direct an upcoming Disney + series.

Giacchino has over 150 composition credits to his credit dating back to the 1990s, but his first directing credit didn’t come until 2018. He made a short film titled Monster challenge which starred Patton Oswalt and Ben Schwartz and directed an episode of Star Trek: Short Hikes titled “Ephraim and Dot” in 2019. The Illuminerdi doesn’t give any details on what project Giacchino might do for Marvel, but we’re going to assume it won’t be for any of the shows that are streaming in 2022. Most of these shows are either already filmed or have directors lined up. Currently the list of shows includes Ms. marvel, she-hulk, Moon knight, I am Groot, and the Guardians of the Galaxy vacation special.

As for his music, Giacchino spoke with Collider last year and shared that Matt Reeves’ take on Batman “feels fresh” in an exciting way.

“I love it,” Giacchino said. “I think what he’s doing is really cool, and it’s different and it’s fresh. From the way I get excited when I see a new graphic novel or a new comic coming out with a new version. C It’s like that. ”Giacchino didn’t explain exactly what was“ new ”about Reeves’ take, but he did say how much he liked the freedom in the approach Reeves takes with the film. “I felt totally free to do whatever I wanted,” Giacchino explained. “Matt has always been okay, this is our Batman, this is our vision. In the same way that I always loved, what I still do about the Batman comics and graphic novels, this ‘is that each of these artists, each of these writers they take their own crack at whatever they want it to be. It’s their version of Batman. “
