I like that they keep switching composers for the Marvel Universe films. But here they throw Hans Zimmer at both Batman and Superman.
Alan Silvestri was composer on both Captain America and The Avengers.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

They haven't kept switching composers on the MCU films. The only time that has happened was John Debney on "Iron Man 2" taking over for Ramin Djawadi. Joss Whedon specifically requested Silvestri be brought on board "Avengers" so the film could retain a sense of musical continuity with Captain America. Far as I know Debney is still attached to "Iron Man 3" unless Shane Black decides to go with someone else. Patrick Doyle is supposed to return for "Thor 2". Although the composers for these films haven't been officially announced. Of course we don't know the status of an Incredible Hulk sequel so who knows if Craig Armstrong will return or not.

I would hate to have to be the composer to follow John Williams theme which is burned into the consciousnesses of all Superman fans, but Hans is an excellent choice!
He must use the classic score as the opener otherwise no-go.
He won't, and that's just fine.
Agreed. Let's move on. Let's do something new. No reason to constantly recycle the past.

Williams's score is fantastic, the theme is iconic, and not using it won't change that one bit. In fact, I think it would be BEST not to use it... let this movie stand on its own...

They've already stated they're going to do something new, so fans who want to see Williams score in "Man of Steel" are going to be disappointed.

I won't be disappointed. I like the theme but honestly it sounds a little dated to me. I'm looking forward to hearing something new.

Patrick Doyle seems to be Branagh's 'go-to' composer so if KB isn't returning, he may not either. Shame, as I thought his score was the best of the Marvelverse.

Interesting that Zimmer, rather than Snyder's usual composer is scoring MOS. Does this hint at a Nolan-domination of the movie or is it just that Hans' experience with the Batman movies and his ability to score a rousing action movie was felt more appropriate for Superman's resurrection?

He must use the classic score as the opener otherwise no-go. From what am seeing though, it could be the next Batman franchise, or the next Green Lantern.
I love the classic Superman theme from John Williams. I am mixed about this. I would love for Hans to reuse the main theme because it is so associated with the character but on the other hand I do understand the need for this reboot to disassociate itself from previous Superman movies.

My problem would be that great character themes are pretty damn rare these days. So we won't likely get some great, classic, Superman theme that'll latch to the character for a generation but some generic piece of music easily forgotten.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Tyler Bates has a busy schedule coming up. I believe he's attached to a number of films for 2013. Nolan except for script re-writes has been hands off and allowed Zack to do his thing.

Hi Admiral could you point me in the direction of that statement, only I know nothing about that. All I've heard is that first Hans Zimmer was going to score the film, then he wasn't and now he is, I certainly haven't heard that that they doing something new. Though sadly that was always on the cards .

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Hans hasn't stated that...but Snyder last year in an interview in October stated that "Man of Steel" is going to be very different from the DonnerVerse and stated they're seeking a complete separation. One only assumes that since they've brought in Hans that they're doing that with the score as well.

I think a deeper and richer version of the 1950s TV show theme would actually work really WELL in a Superman movie.

I'm very excited that Hans Zimmer is doing the score for Man of Steel. I was worried we'd get Tyler Bates or something.
