Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

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.

Not really a surprise. I'm kinda meh on Zimmer. I do like his Gladiator score but everything else he's done since is very same-y.

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

Zimmer is a better choice than Tyler Bates, a Zack Snyder regular who does some pretty mediocre scores.

^ True. I don't remember any of the music from Snyder scores, apart from the classic rock used in Watchmen. I can at least hum some of Zimmer's scores.

The score might be pretty bass heavy if "Inception" or "The Dark Knight" are any indication.

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

My first reaction to the news is to laugh. My second is to get excited. Hopefully he'll craft something that doesn't sound the same as everything else he's done.

My first reaction: third nail in the coffin, skipper of a movie.

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

Well, that does settle that the Superman theme will not return.

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

I think this is awesome news and as we discussed in the other thread about the Superman theme not returning, I think it is only a good thing. This film needs to separate it's self from the Donner Verse...and who the hell knows, maybe people will actually LIKE what Zimmer composes. Oh the shock of that....

Probably not until after Zack is finished with his "Sucker Punch" responsibilities.

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

As I said in the other Superman scoring thread, I really would have liked to have seen Michael Giancchino get a crack at Superman. I feel his style would have really suited the character. Alas, 'tis not to be...

Re: Hans Zimmer will score "Superman"

Actually, I'm glad it's not Giacchino. I just don't get what others see in his work.

Well, don't forget THE PRESTIGE, which came between BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT, and was handled by Nolan's other frequent collaborator, David Julyan (a shame he hasn't been getting more work).

And yet none of the clips you've selected come from the composers work in the 2000s. Was that deliberate or am I reading too much into it?

...

I can't say I'm excited about this news, personally. Zimmer is as bad as James Horner when it comes to self-plagiarizing, and lately hasn't been all that interesting as a composer.
