Bear McCreary To Score 'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
reported that Composer Bear McCreary is set to score the upcoming ABC series, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. McCreary confirmed the report with his own announcement
Entertainment Weekly just broken the news that I am the composer for ABC’s highly-anticipated series “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for Writer / Director / Executive Producer Joss Whedon.
Readers of my blog know that superhero stories and their scores have had a tremendous impact on my life ever since I was a kid. I grew up with “Batman: The Animated Series,” “Superman,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Spiderman” and “X-Men.” In my daydreams, their adventures rumbled with bombastic and soaring orchestral melodies. I always wanted to write music of my own for this genre.
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.
McCreary has composed scores for such shows as “The Walking Dead,” “Europa Report,” “Defiance,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Holliston,” “Black Sails” and now, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
