Default Re: Hans Zimmer Scoring The Man of Steel - Part 1

A few years ago, some fan site (forget which one) did a retrospective (with mp3 files) on Superman music through the ages. The Williams theme (of course) was there. As well as: the 50s TV series, various cartoons, L&C and Smallville. And casually included among those was music from Superman Lives.

Say what?!!!

Now that movie was well into pre-production before it got cancelled. So it wasn’t impossible that someone (Elfman?) might have composed a preliminary theme. But the mp3 was suspiciously complete and polished. That said… as I listened to its choir and percussions, I could definitely imagine it for Superman.

Anyhoo, long story short, it turned out to be (no big surprise) fake. The music was actually from Backdraft.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Coincidentally, Hans Zimmer was the composer.
