Hans Zimmer scoring ‘Man of Steel’

Nolan's go-to music man back for WB's Superman reboot

Hans Zimmer, who worked on all three films in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, is set to reteam with the filmmaker once again, as Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have tapped him to score their Superman pic “Man of Steel.”

Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment produced the superhero tentpole with Syncopy, Cruel & Unusual Films and DC Entertainment. Nolan and producing partner Emma Thomas produced the film with Atlas topper Charles Roven and Cruel & Unusual principal Deborah Snyder. Legendary’s Thomas Tull exec produced with Lloyd Phillips.

In addition to “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and this summer’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” Zimmer worked with Nolan on “Inception,” for which he received an Oscar nomination. He has been nominated for nine Oscars and previously won for Disney’s “The Lion King.”

John Williams was nominated for an Oscar for creating the iconic theme to Richard Donner’s original “Superman” in 1978.

“Man of Steel” will mark the first Snyder-directed pic on which the helmer hasn’t worked with composer Tyler Bates, who scored “Dawn of the Dead,” “300,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.”

“Man of Steel,” which hits theaters on June 14, 2013, stars Henry Cavill as the titular superhero, while the rest of the cast includes Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue and Christopher Meloni.

Zimmer is repped by WME.
