There’s a magically nerdy musical easter egg in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’


No spoilers.

For those who aren’t feeling hype enough about Spider-Man: Homecoming, perhaps this will put you over the top. You will hear the theme song from Spidey’s 1960s cartoon series at some point in the movie

It’s not quite the same as the ‘toon version, however. This is an orchestral version by the film score’s composer, Michael Giacchino. Even if you’re not familiar with his name, you probably know some of his work: Lost. Fringe. Star Trek (the 2009 one). The Incredibles. Rogue One. A bunch of others.

And now, for the sake of comparison, here’s the original Spidey show theme, the one from the ’60s.

This magical cover is yet another example of the way Homecoming steps confidently out of the shadows cast by its many big screen predecessors. It’s a thoughtful take on Spidey that carefully sidesteps the more obvious touchstones from past takes on the character.

Yes, a lot of what works in Homecoming stems from the way it is cleverly woven into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as Mashable‘s own Angie Han pointed out in her stellar review, this “is a film about what it’s been like to watch the MCU for the past ten years.”

The wait is almost over. Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7.
