Music composer Hans Zimmer is set to score Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman film Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner.
Zimmer is most recently known for his work with director Christopher Nolan on the Batman films. This is an interesting announcement because Snyder usually collaborates with composer Tyler Bates on his films. This would mean that Nolan’s producer credit might actually mean something, aside from being a big name on an expensive movie.
I’m glad Zimmer is doing the music for Man of Steel, because his work on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is outstanding and I’m sure he’ll do the series finale justice when the score is revealed for The Dark Knight Rises.
