Battlestars Bear McCreary To Write Music For Marvels Agents Of SHIELD

"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 , Spider-Man 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.”

Congrats to you, mate!
