In an interview with MTV Hans Zimmer revealed that he will not be composing the theme for Batman in the upcoming movie Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While on the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards Zimmer talked with MTV about some of his ideas for the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice score. He pointed out that although the score was yet to be written he does have many ideas in the works and stated that ideally he would like each hero to have their own theme.
Dawn of Justice of course will be featuring not only Batman and Superman but also Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman. It will be interesting to see what, if anything, Zimmer has lined up for them.
However, Zimmer also confirmed that while he will be busy working on a theme for Superman he would not be doing the same for Batman.
“And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really important to me not to betray the work we did with Chris.””
Zimmer stated that his desire to ensure the score is original and different from his work on Chrisopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy means he will not be working on a theme for Batman. Instead the task will fall to Dutch artist Junkie XL, whose recent works include Divergence and 300: Rise of An Empire.
Zimmer also couldn’t say if he would be working on any of the other DC movies, simply saying “the studio is going to hedge its bets if I ruin this one.”
