He’s taken some time to decide, but “The Dark Knight” trilogy and “Man of Steel” composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed he will provide the score for Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman Vs. Superman”.
Speaking with Digital Spy, he says he will start crafting music for the project once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic “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.”
Zimmer says the biggest challenge, and the one that kept him undecided about committing to the project for such a long time, was that he had to come up with a completely new Batman theme for Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader:
“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.”
