World renowned composer Hans Zimmer seemingly has scored a majority of the DC Comics feature films including Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. So he was a natural choice when it came to choosing someone to score the upcoming Superman/Batman film. But Zimmer hasn’t agreed just yet.
The Man of Steel sequel is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with director Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the film along with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their roles in the sequel. It is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015 with production expected to begin in February of 2014.
“This is really complicated for me,” he said in an interview with Red Carpet News. “Because we all went, ‘Okay, we’re done with Batman,’ and now it’s sort of getting smuggled back in. I’ll have to have a think about that one. I might give you a new Batman if I do it.”
Zimmer also spoke about the studio’s choice to cast Affleck as The Batman.
“I actually think it’s a really good choice, because #1 he’s a great filmmaker. He’s smart. He wouldn’t have taken it if he had set himself up for a fall. And, you know, he’s a bit older these days and that’s what we need, and he’s got a good chin.”
