Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino is currently working on the score for Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and has released a sample from the score on YouTube.
The piece released today is the score’s final track, titled The Master of the Mystic End Credits. It’s worlds away from any other Marvel score we’ve heard before, moving away from the more traditional orchestral movie score with psychedelic guitars and strings more reminiscent of Doctor Who than a superhero film. Just from hearing this sample, I’m genuinely excited to hear what the rest of the soundtrack will be like.
Benedict Cumberbatch will be starring in Doctor Strange and joining him are Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong and Mads Mikkelsen, with Scott Derrickson directing. The film will be arriving in UK cinemas in just under a week, on 25th October.
