Hans Zimmer Confirms He Is Scoring BATMAN VS SUPERMAN
Most of the time when it comes to film scores, it can either make or break a movie. The movie its self could be amazing, but if the music isn’t right to go with it and set the tone, it almost ruins it. Hans Zimmer has been a busy man recently. Busy scoring the types of movies we cover here at Comic Book Therapy. From Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy to the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2. Another film that he laid the music for is Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
Which begs the question, is Zimmer going to return to the Man Of Steel franchise to score Batman Vs. Superman? While it almost seems like a no brainer, he has a pretty unique challenge of trying to create music for a character that he has already done before in Batman. While speaking with Digital Spy he touched on that a little bit. “That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma. I don’t want to betray, if that’s the right word, the Dark Knight movies. That was Christian, it was Christian’s role,” he explained. “It’s not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable to that period. So it’s really about, ‘Is there something else I can find that I haven’t tapped into?‘
Based on the above quote it would sound as if Zimmer will indeed return. As a matter of fact that’s exactly what’s happening as he confirmed that after he finishes his latest movie he will get to work on it. “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,” Zimmer revealed.
With Zimmer’s work on The Dark Knight Trilogy, I will be interested to see how he decides to take the music of the film when it pertains to Batman. He admits that he doesn’t really know what he’ll do until, “I sit down with Zack.” However, Zimmer is an accomplished composer, and based on his body of work I would say he has already got a few ideas to not only make the music different, but maybe even better.
