It looks like Hans Zimmer will return to work with Zack Snyder on scoring Batman Vs. Superman. You would think it would be a no brainier that he would back to score the sequel to Man of Steel, but he previously talked about his hesitation on doing it saying:
“Honestly, I’m just sort of grappling with that right now. Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don’t want to go and take what I did with Chris and just plonk it into another movie. There isn’t one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it.”
I guess the composer ended up coming up with lots of good reasons to do it, because he recently confirmed with Digital Spy that he will be scoring the film after he's done with Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Here's what he told them:
"We've already had a couple of chats. And once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."
I'm happy to hear that Zimmer will be back. It will be good that there is going to be some consistency to the musical score of the franchise. I love what Zimmer did with Man of Steal, and all of the other films that he has scored for the matter. The guy is crazy talented at what he does.
Batman vs. Superman will star Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Jesse Eisenberg, and Jeremy Irons. The movie is set to open in theaters on May 6th, 2016.
