12. Jessica Jones
On the other side of things, Marvel’s recent gritty Netflix series Jessica Jones rewrote the rulebook on superhero TV – and so had an unusual theme. There’s a jazzy tone to this one which reflects the neo-noir stylings of the show. A very underrated theme, this one.
The Daredevil theme tune is brilliant because it perfectly represents the show that follows it. There’s a tense pounding beat that is often found in superhero themes, as well as a more subdued melody that sounds like the theme of a legal drama.
10. Spectacular Spider-Man
If you’re not familiar with this acclaimed Spidey series from 2007, go and watch it now. Set in Peter’s high school years, it is a fantastic concoction of the best of the character’s mythos. The theme tune is also pretty – dare we say it? – spectacular too.
