James Horner May Get Caught In The Web To Score 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

Composer James Horner has seemingly done it all during his lengthy career. With seven Oscar nominations leading to one win (for "Titanic"), Horner has tuned up a wide variety of movies including "Wolfen," "48 Hrs.," "Glory," "Honey I Shrunk The Kids," "Braveheart," "Apollo 13," "Avatar" and even famously clashed with Terrence Malick over "The New World." However, aside from "The Rocketeer," he hasn't done much in the way of comic book movies. But all that may change very soon. In a recent interview with SCOREcast Online (via Film Music Reporter) music editor and frequent Horner collaborator Jim Henrikson revealed that the composer “is pretty well set” to take on the gig. However, it should be noted this interview took place way back in May (why it's only being aired now is beyond us) and there has been no other word either way anywhere else since. So take it as tentative for now.

However, it should be noted this interview took place way back in May (why it's only being aired now is beyond us) and there has been no other word either way anywhere else since. So take it as tentative for now.

Horner certainly isn't lacking in the tools required to score a big budget effects movie -- after all, he has worked with James Cameron numerous times -- and his potential hire is a tonal shift from the Danny Elfman works that populated the Sam Raimi directed trilogy. We're not really sure what to think of Horner scoring 'Spider-Man,' if only because the free-wheeling trailer left us cold. Another origin story? POV 3D? Guess we'll figure that out. But if anything, we suppose this means director Marc Webb will be forgoing the "(500) Days Of Summer" indie rock soundtrack treatment.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" opens on July 3, 2012.
