People, you know who you are, have been complaining that soundtracks in modern Super Hero movies are beginning to all sound alike. If the just released track “The Master of the Mystic” end credit music for Marvel’s Doctor Strange is any indication of the rest of the soundtrack, then we’re in luck.
Composer Michael Giacchino has won Oscars and Grammy awards and now he’s composing the main title theme for Marvel’s Doctor Strange. This is his first-ever feature collaboration with Marvel Studios.

For end credits this music really seems like it is from another dimension.
“Michael Giacchino’s score does so much more than support the visual images, it adds new, additional layers of meaning and emotion to the film,” said Director Scott Derrickson. “The ‘Doctor Strange’ theme is memorable, moving and yes, magical. I don’t know what the movie would be without it.”
“I was really excited when I got the call to score ‘Doctor Strange’ since I had been a fan as a kid. Once I saw the film, I was impressed at how well the character had stood the test of time,” said Giacchino. “This rendition of ‘Doctor Strange’ gave me the opportunity to bring to life all of the crazy things I heard in my head while reading those comic books growing up in the ’70s.”
About the movie:
From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
