Re: Hans Zimmer Scoring The Man of Steel
This is very interesting news. I always kind of suspected this might happen.
John Williams' score brought us the heroic and majestic nature of Superman. John Ottman delved more into the emotional core of a heartbroken Superman and was able to lend some gravitas to the more awe-inspiring God-like side of Superman. Now, I can only imagine Zimmer will let us hear the sheer power and might of Superman. Hopefully that and more.
This will draw a mixed response, no doubt. Personally I think it's a smart move, because Zimmer is one guy you can definitely count on to not attempt to sound like John Williams. And you really need that because anything that tries to approach that theme is going to sound like a poor man's attempt in comparison.
