A couple of years ago, the great composer Hans Zimmer announced that he was “retiring” from superhero movies. He provided the scores for The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and many more. Thankfully, it seems he’s coming out of his self-imposed retirement to score X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This announcement was made by accident by Evan Peters who was talking to HappySadConfused at Sundance. He said:
My excitement for this film has just jumped up a few notches. I love Zimmer’s scores. Batman Begins has one of my favorite musical scores from a film, so I’m excited to hear what he does with Dark Phoenix. You can listen to the podcast and the talk about Dark Phoenix starts around the 28-minute mark.
