Man of Steel director Zack Snyder recently spoke out about the musical score and the how he wants the new film to depart from the originals. Apparently, he and composer Hans Zimmer are pretending that no other Superman movies in order to move away from John Williams' original theme.
"We had to say this is a Superman movie for the first time and you can't then go 'Oh, now let's steal a little music'... So, yes it's awesome music but Hans Zimmer is going to do something awesome."
In a recent interview with Total Film, the director elaborated his point about creating an entirely new Superman.
"The big challenge is if you can make people feel 'What would you do if you were Superman?' That's what we went out to do as far as we could. Superman's always been this kind of big blue boy-scout up on a throne that nobody can really touch, so we tried to make him relatable. We decided to act as if no Superman film had been made - even though we love the films that have been made... Superman is a big responsibility but I felt he needed to be reintroduced to a generation and I thought this was a great opportunity."
