Re: Hans Zimmer Scoring The Man of Steel
Am I the only one who doesn't give a crap if Superman has a proper theme? I know everyone wants one because they are stuck on the old theme but I don't care as long as the soundtrack is good. I also don't care if it's traditional orchestrated music or not as long as the music is good and fits the film. I'm a total score whore but I've never been a theme one and do not understand the obsession with it.
I loved Elfman and Shirley Walkers Batman scores for the Burton films and Timm/Dini animated series and I also loved Zimmers and Newton Howards in the Nolan version.
I loved the Williams Superman score (I'm thinking of changing my ringtone to it). It's big and iconic and noone will ever forget it but unless Zimmer pulls a Newton Howard on Green Lantern I think that he's going to come up a good score like he did with Batman.
