Hans Zimmer, maestro behind such scores as The Thin Red Line, The Last Samurai
and the Pirates of the Caribbean
movies, confirmed to Ann Thompson of Variety
that he will indeed provide the score for the new Superman
reboot that will be produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder.
Zimmer is an oft-collaborator of Nolan, having composed the scores for his last three films (Batman Begins
and The Dark Knight
with James Newton-Howard; Inception
by himself) and will likely juggle scoring gigs with Nolan's last Batman
film, entitled The Dark Knight Rises.
Both films come out 2012 (TDKR
comes out July 2012, and the Superman
film comes out Winter 2012) so it looks like Zimmer will be a busy man.
