Re: Greatest Composer of a Batman Film!?
I'm gonna take a wild guess and assume that maybe Nolan didn't want a unique and fresh score but a generic, droning, blaring, MV/RC-esque driven action score. And therefore didn't believe Julyan was up to the task. So then he hired Zimmer who then hired JNH to colllaborate, but most of the time held Howard hostage to his style of music.
