Joss Whedon’s upcoming Marvel-verse TV show, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, is one of the most exciting new series on the network horizon. It’s only fitting that one of genre TV’s most exciting composers has been tapped to provide the score for the show. Bear McCreary confirmed on his official website that he will be the composer for Agents of SHIELD, and he couldn’t sound more excited. McCreary writes:
Now, I have the opportunity to contribute original music to the ever-expanding Marvel universe? And I have a full symphonic orchestra at my disposal every week to do it? And I get to work with the visionary Joss Whedon and his remarkable creative team? Well, suddenly I’m worried that my entire life might actually be a dream, that I might suddenly wake up back in third grade, having dozed off while reading “X-Men.” If this life is a dream, I’m going to love every minute of it until I wake up.
If Bear McCreary’s name sounds familiar to you, it’s likely because you’re already a fan of the legion of other shows and movies to which he’s lent his talents. Everything from Battlestar Galactica to Eureka to Defiance to The Walking Dead has benefited from his music, and it’s exciting to see him bringing his talent to the Marvel Universe.
