Spider-Man: No Way Home's marketing is in full blast as the film's premiere inches closer. The anticipation surrounding the Tom Holland-led MCU project is high, as evidenced by the overwhelmingly positive reaction on social media. Directed by Jon Watts, the threequel revolves around Peter Parker's identity crisis after Far From Home, which sees him seeking the help of Doctor Strange.
Strange's assistance ultimately leads to more problems as his botched spell unleashes the full might of the Multiverse on the MCU. The concept of alternate realities allows the threequel to explore many story opportunities while also letting the behind-the-scenes crew to be creative in terms of placing tributes to previous movies.
One approach is through the movie's soundtrack department. Recently, No Way Home's soundtrack leaked online, and a good chunk of the fanbase pointed out that it has tracks that include references to Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man themes from their respective movies.
While the full leaked soundtrack was taken down by Sony, a new and official track has arrived online, giving fans a tease of what to expect in the film's music department.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Composer Releases Score Preview
Spider-Man: No Way Home composer Michael Giacchino officially released a 10-minute preview of his upcoming score for the MCU threequel.
The track's title is "Arachnoverture," and it features the main theme of the MCU's Spider-Man combined with renditions that depict different emotions. The track ends with an upbeat tune of Spider-Man's main theme.
Fans can listen to the track below:
A Thrilling Score for an Action-Packed Adventure
This 10-minute preview essentially teases the ups and downs that Tom Holland's Peter Parker will experience in No Way Home.
The song starts with the Marvel hero's main theme, which can be heard during his first two MCU adventures in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Then, it transitions into an ominous tone that could be for the film's villains, since a hint of Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus' score from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies can be heard.
The track then moves forward with a sad tone, likely hinting that Peter will suffer a tragedy in the upcoming movie. This is supported by a previous rumor that Spider-Man could lose some of his loved ones in his Multiverse-related adventure.
After that, the track showcases a thrilling beat, which could be used in the film's fighting sequences. The ending is an upbeat one, potentially hinting that this could be played during the credits when it's all said and done.
Meanwhile, Giacchino's "Arachnoverture" title for the track is a fun combination of overture and Arachnid, with the former serving as a reference to it being a musical introduction, while the latter is an obvious nod to the web-slinger.
Given that No Way Home is a Multiverse affair, it's reasonable to assume that its official soundtrack will include a plethora of references to previous scores of Danny Elfman from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy and James Horner and Hans Zimmer's music from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to premiere in theaters on December 17, 2021.
