Yeah that's awesome. I don't care if the theme feels like "batman leftovers" to some but that theme fits that character, imo. The score for the Pilot had a lot of great cues." When he was running on the racetrack and enjoying his powers for the first time. The music when Barry goes after his brother Jay to save him from Pike, but was too late was also something else. I also liked in the Pilot that she wrote a theme or motif for when the Flash gets hurt. You can hear it during the scene where he gets stabbed in the leg by Pike's girlfriend. As well as during the climax when Pike was beating him down as he was blacking out from his powers. It really gives you the feeling of defeat, but of course Flash will overcome it and triumph in the end. She also gave the Central City Police a theme as well on the Pilot ep. She did an excellent job on the entire series. That's one of the reasons Bruce Timm picked her for B:TAS other than her involvement (as conductor/orchestrator) in the Batman 89 score. I know one thing whenever the Flash movie gets made (If ever! ) it's going to be hard to imagine them topping what Walker composed for the character, imo. She really elevated an otherwise great show.

Oh and I apologize to those for getting this thread off topic. I know this is about Zimmer's MOS. So I'll keep it on topic.
