Having worked on Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” film score composer Hans Zimmer hasn’t yet decided if he’ll return for the latter’s sequel “Batman vs. Superman”.
If he does though, he faces an interesting challenge – to continue growing the non-John Williams style score he created for “Man of Steel,” to come up with a whole new musical impression for a very different kind of Batman, and to have both those elements fuse together in a cohesive way.
Talking with Collider, Zimmer confirmed he hasn’t made a final decision as yet:
“it’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now. Quite honestly, I’ve gotta sit down with Zack and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well.
it’s a different Batman; Christian Bale and what I did with Chris, that needs to have its autonomous life. I don’t want to go and now appropriate that and put that into the other Batman.
Of course I can see myself doing it, first of all because I love working with Zack. I think you can tell from that score we had a lot of fun, and I think it was inventive. Once I got over the whole ‘Oh my God I’m not as good as John Williams’ thing which, I’m different! And it’s different times.”
