‘Batman-Superman’ Movie to Be Scored by Hans Zimmer

A lot is still under wraps for Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Batman-Superman” movie, but it looks like Hans Zimmer will return to score the upcoming sequel.

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).

“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,” said Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he said the experience actually makes his new gig harder as the theme for Ben Affleck’s Batman has to differ from that of Christian Bale’s Caped Crusader.

“That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma,” he said. “I don’t want to betray, if that’s the right word, the ‘Dark Knight’ movies. That was Christian, it was Christian’s role. It’s not just that it was nine years of our lives so you want to stay honest and honorable 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.”

“Batman-Superman” will face off against “Captain America 3” in theaters on May 6, 2016. It also stars Henry Cavill as Superman as well as Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot.
