Hans Zimmer Reunites With Zack Snyder To Score ‘Batman vs. Superman’

By April 16, 2014

Looks like Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer and “Man Of Steel” director Zack Snyder are teaming up again for the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” film.

No stranger to the DC cinematic universe, Zimmer composed the musical themes for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and scored Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel (which you can listen to here), so it’s no surprise that Snyder wants him back.

Zimmer’s already said that once he finishes the score to Nolan’s upcoming Interstellar, he’s gonna get right to work on the BvS score.

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 also told Digital Spy that he’s hoping to create a new theme to differentiate from Christian Bale’s run at The Dark Knight while complimenting Ben Affleck’s turn at the role.

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 (Bale), it was Christian’s role. 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?’ Which I don’t know until I sit down with Zack.

I look forward to hearing his handiwork when the film opens May 6, 2016. Until then, you can check out our interview with him in which he discusses his work on Snyder’s Man of Steel. Thoughts?

  • Not exactly surprising Zimmer’s coming back…but I wonder how his Batman theme will be different in this film than it was in Nolan’s movies?
