After months of speculation, Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed that he will return to provide the score for its sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview with Digital Spy, where he revealed that he will start crafting music for the DC Comics superhero follow-up once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
"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 (Snyder) is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."
Back in September, the composer revealed that he was undecided about taking on this sequel, since he will have to come up with a new Batman theme, after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He explained that composing an original theme for Ben Affleck's Dark Knight will be his biggest challenge yet.
"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 honorable 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."
Hans Zimmer said back in October that director Zack Snyder hadn't asked him to come back yet, after they worked together on Man of Steel, but that has all changed now, with the composer on board.
