Default Re: The [Superman and Batman] composer thread

Sure, it can be done gracefully (heck the idea of Walker adapting Zimmer's themes makes me salivate), but I still say most composers would rather give their own, original take on the material. And who could blame them?

Heck, Chris Drake has composed multiple Batman themes for various DC Animated movies, all different and all of them good and fitting for each movie. It's this idea that recycling the old is automatically better than trying something new that bothers me. Reinvention is what has kept Batman fresh after all these years, and that's something that should be reflected musically in all the different incarnations.

Anyway, them going back to Elfman/Walker and Williams is all a pipe dream anyway. It's just not gonna happen.
