It’s been a while since any concrete news has come from Warner Brothers’ Batman/Superman, so this report from Digital Spy should get fans excited once again for the Dark Knight’s return to the big screen. According to the site, Hans Zimmer, who provided the score for Man of Steel, will likely return to work on the sequel once he’s done with 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 is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas," Zimmer told the site.
Zimmer obviously worked on Batman before on Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, so it will be strange to now compose a theme for a different take on the same character.
"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, it was Christian's role," he told the site. "It's not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable 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."
It sounds like Zimmer will most likely wind up working on Batman/Superman, especially since Zack Snyder’s version of the character will be far different than what Nolan brought fans. This will hopefully give Zimmer enough inspiration to score the film because it just wouldn’t be a DC blockbuster without his signature sound.
