One of the busiest composers in Hollywood, Hans Zimmer, confirmed he will be returning to work with Zack Synder to create the score for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
In an interview with Digital Spy Han Zimmer confirmed that he will be joining Synder to work on the sequel, just as soon as he is finished with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
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.
Zimmer did share that he has a concern about creating this work now that Batman has been added to the cast of characters:
That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma. 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.
I certainly understand where Zimmer is coming from with wanting this film to be distant from the work he did with Nolan and Bale on the Dark Knight films. If the Batman theme is anywhere close to what it was in that trilogy of films it would send the fans to the Internet proclaiming that the movies are linked and I don’t think that is something Warner Bros. wants as they move forward trying to create the DC Cinematic Universe.
