During an event in London, Matt Reeves announced who the composer would be for his upcoming film, The Batman.
While in London, during a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, Matt Reeves accompanied Michael Giacchino on stage to announce that he would be scoring The Batman. In doing so, Reeves got down on one knee acting as if he was proposing to Giacchino, which Giacchino then accepted. This is probably the most fun way that something like this could be announced.
A major announcement, no doubt, but this won’t be the first time that Reeves and Giacchino will be working together.
They’ve previously collaborated on Reeves’ other films such as Cloverfield, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes. Basically, they’ve worked together on all of Reeves’ films except for his first, The Pallbearer. Really, given their history, it’s not a surprise that they would want to work together again on this film.
Other than collaborating with Reeves before though, Giacchino is one of the best composers working in the film industry today. His filmography includes films such as The Incredibles, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Jurassic World and the list goes on.
He’s also been a frequent collaborator with JJ Abrams, with the pair having worked on Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Super 8 together.
This is just the latest news regarding The Batman within this week alone. Zoe Kravitz was announced as Catwoman on Monday. The report that talks had broken down between Jonah Hill and Warner Bros. occurred on Wednesday. And on Thursday, it was reported that Paul Dano was in talks to play The Riddler.
It’s certainly been a busy week for the film, but after years of languish and speculation, it’s exciting to see so much occurring for The Batman.
The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021. Are you glad to hear that Giacchino will be scoring it? Let us know in the comments below!
