Hans Zimmer has provided some wonderful musical score for superhero movies over the years, like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. He’s currently working on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and when talking to MTV he spoke a little bit about what he plans on doing with the score of the film saying, “I’ve got a couple of ideas.”
When asked if he would be writing individual themes for all of the superheroes that will be appearing in the movie, he said:
“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way. We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”
The guy seems like he will be able to work with Warner Bros. as much as he wants on these superhero productions. When the subject comes up in the conversation he says:
“Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really important to me not to betray the work we did with Chris.”
To help get around that, Zimmer is collaborating with the musical artist Junkie XL for the score of Dawn of Justice. Zimmer will score the Superman music and Junkie XL will be scoring the Batman sections. The other heroes who will appear in the film include Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. It will be interesting to see what all of their themes end up sounding like.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
