The composer of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, Hans Zimmer, is officially set to score Zack Snyder's Superman movie Man of Steel. At one point it was rumored that the composer would take it on, but he denied any involvement with it at the time saying,
John Williams, the greatest living composer -- full stop. And that happens to be one of his greatest themes. So no. And I’m not thinking of rewriting Beethoven’s ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless task, you know? So that’s unequivocally a no. I have never spoken with Zack Snyder.
Well, it looks like he's now talked to Snyder, and is ready to get the work scoring the film. Zimmer has not only scored the Batman film trilogy, but he also worked on Inception, Rango, Sherlock Holmes, The Da Vinci Code and a ton of other films. The guy has proven to be a great composer, and even though it may never be as amazing as John Williams original Superman score, I'm sure it will end up being very impressive. I love what he did with The Dark Knight and Inception.
The movie hits theaters on June 14th, 2013, and stars Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, and Christopher Meloni.
Do you think Zimmer will come up with a new badass Superman score?
