Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
"Battlestar Galactica" and "The Walking Dead" composer Bear McCreary will be bringing his talents to the upcoming ABC series "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". In an official statement, McCreary says:
"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." [Source: SHH]
