Zimmer Denies Supes, McCoy Confirms “Hobbit”

Hans Zimmer tells full details that despite all the online reporting saying he’s scoring Zac Snyder’s upcoming “Superman” film, he’s not doing it.

Zimmer says the online reports were based on “some dirty quote taken out of context” and it’s mostly because he worked on Chris Nolan’s “Batman” films.

Asked straight up if he’s doing it, Zimmer says “unequivocally a no. I have never spoken with Zack Snyder… My heart belongs to Batman. I wouldn’t even know how to go and give voice to it [Superman]. I haven’t thought about it.”

Meanwhile one old report that has come true it would seem is Sylvester McCoy’s involvement in “The Hobbit” reports MSN.

The 67-year-old actor tells the BBC “When they sent out the character description for the part I’m playing, it says he’s between 57 and 75. When it started out I was 57, but it’s taken so long to get to fruition I’m now 75.”

McCoy won’t reveal details of his role, or whom he is even playing though it seems likely to be Radagast the Brown, the other major wizard role in the film aside from Gandalf.

McCoy adds “I can’t say anything! I don’t even know if I’ve said too much already. I’ve already got my wrist gently tapped. I just want to tell the world about it… I know it’s all bubbling away and plans are being made.”

McCoy is best known as playing the initially bumbling but later quite calculating and Machiavellian seventh incarnation of The Doctor in TV’s “Doctor Who” in the late 1980’s.
