He scored Chris Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” trilogy, and Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. Now, things are circling back around for composer Hans Zimmer who isn’t quite sure what he’ll do for the upcoming ‘Steel’ sequel involving a quite different Batman.
In an interview with Red Carpet News, Zimmer confirms he hasn’t accepted the job yet. However, he’s already considered the dilemma:
“This is really complicated for me. Because we all went, ‘Okay, we’re done with Batman,’ and now it’s sort of getting smuggled back in. I’ll have to have a think about that one. I might give you a new Batman if I do it.”
He was also asked his opinion on Affleck as Batman:
“I actually think it’s a really good choice, because #1 he’s a great filmmaker. He’s smart. He wouldn’t have taken it if he had set himself up for a fall. And, you know, he’s a bit older these days and that’s what we need, and he’s got a good chin.”
