UPDATE: Michael Giacchino Debunks ‘Secret Invasion’ Rumors
UPDATE: It seems that Michael Giacchino got wind of the story by DisInsider and debunked it directly. He responded to a tweet reporting on the story and pointed out that it isn’t true. It doesn’t rule out the possibility he may join later down the line, but for now it seems to be debunked.
Ummmmm… first I’m hearing of this so… I’d venture to say “not true”.

Disney+ is going to be Marvel Studios’ big new entry point. They just started with WandaVision and have plenty of various shows already in some form of production. There were quite a few announcements, such as a Don Cheadle-led Armor Wars series and, most notably, an event mini-series adapting the Secret Invasion storyline. So far, they’ve only confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn will return. We know from the post-credit sequence from Spider-Man: Far From Home that Fury has been leading a group of Skrulls in space. Meanwhile, Mendelsohn‘s Talos remained on Earth with his wife while impersonating Nick Fury. So, this will act as a direct follow-up to the storyline that got teased at the end of that film.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did reveal that the storyline will stick to the original’s focus on paranoia. It looks like they might have already found the perfect composer to add just the right music that will probably drive us insane, as we question who one can trust. According to DisInsider, Marvel Studios has already tapped Michael Giacchino to compose the Disney+ mini-series’ score. It isn’t the first time for the director, as he also worked on both MCU Spider-man movies and will compose Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Giacchino worked on many projects over the years, such as the Jurassic World films, Rogue One, Star Trek Beyond, Coco, and so many more. He is also currently working on the score for Matt Reeves‘ The Batman film. Now, I do believe he is the perfect choice for Secret Invasion. His work on the series Lost was a huge selling point for the series, as the score is still stuck in my head since the show ended. I could see him echo some elements from that score, as we will face a wide variety of twists.
