Default The Official Superman/Batman Composer Thread

Well, since this is now the official B&S movie subforum, I thought I'd create a thread for the composer.

Zimmer? A new guy? Themes? No themes? Discuss.

The composer for the first Iron Man movie
It will be fun watching their team-up with music like that, or even use a different style

You have to be kidding, right? You want to switch out the man who made some of the best scores of modern cinema (Inception, Dark Knight Trilogy, Thin Red Line and a lot more), with the guy who made one of the most forgettable superhero scores ever? You want Batman and Superman meet, while in the background music like from Iron Man plays? You know, with the classic rock influences and the uplifting cool rocker vibe?!?!?
I mean, come on.
If you liked the score on Iron Man, fine. Driving with the top down is a cool track, but something like that would fit horribly in a movie as epic as this. Apart from that,they won't change the tone for the next movie, so it will still be a pretty serious movie (which I LOVE), so they cannot change the mood of the score that much.

All Marvel movies had crap scores so far, and I know that WB won't go down that route.
They also won't change composers in the middle of a series, like Marvel did many times (which always boggles my mind).

I would bet money that Zimmer returns, since he just did a wonderful new theme for Superman and they won't cast that aside now.
I would look forward to the movie a lot less, if Zimmer wouldn't be involved. I loved his MoS score and still hear a few parts of it almost every day.
I really hope he reuses a lot of the great parts of the first one, adds a new Batman thing, thats a bit different from his old ones and we are good to go.

I mean I would love if he would incorporate his old Batman themes, but I don't think they will do that. It could confuse people.

I disagree with you about the Marvel scores. I don't know if you mean MCU films or Marvel films in general. Either way I can think of a few I prefer over Zimmer's TDKT and MOS scores. Kamen's X1, Ottman's X2, Powell's X3, Elfman's two Spidey scores and Hulk score, Doyle's Thor score, Silvestri's CA:TFA score, Horner's TAS-M score for example.

Oh and when it comes to the current DC film scores they've already taken a weak path, imo. They took the generic, droning, Zimmer path with TDKT, GL, and of course MOS.

You're right about that. Who was scoring TAS-M2 again?

Oh I believe Zimmer will return for the S&B movie unfortunately, since it's supposed to be a sequel to MOS.

And I disagree about Zimmer's Superman theme being wonderful. It was forgettable to my ears. And a disgrace to the character, imo.

Ah, Ramin Djawadi, Zimmer's "child".

He's come a long way since his Blade: Trinity and Iron Man days. I'd welcome him.

I'd be surprised if Zimmer didn't score this, to be honest. With him on board - what would happen with the Batman side of things would be very interesting given it would be a reboot for the character.

I remember Zimmer saying that Snyder told him ideas for the sequel. I can't remember exactly what Zimmer said verbatim, but he described it as crazy and wild.

I'm looking for that interview now...

Zimmer. It seems like a no-brainer. His work on Superman and Batman was awesome; he should be the only one to score this. I know that this is a "new" Batman but even if they want to give him new theme music, Zimmer should be the one to do it.

I really enjoyed the MOS soundtrack, so I certainly don't have a problem with Zimmer coming back, but if for some reason he doesn't come back I'd say John Powell, Don Davis, or Howard Shore.

I think Zimmer should reuse that Batman theme he composed for BB, but then dropped for TDK and TDKR. It feels more appropriate paired up with MOS than the other TDK material.

Zimmer, surely.

Will be strange to hear two versions of Batman music from the one composer, though...

Default Hans Zimmer to return for Batman vs. Superman?

Do you want him to return?

I believe he is the best composer today, and I will love for him to come back!

I love his work for TDK trilogy and I fell in love with his MOS score as well, but how will he do Batman again but make it different, that's the question.

Maybe Zimmer can finally use that "Batman theme" he claimed he created during the Dark Knight days but shelved and never used.

I love the Williams theme like everyone else, but it just does not fit in this Superman's world. Hopefully this makes sense, but the Williams theme sounds bright and cheesy. I absolutely don't mean that in a bad way at all, but it's the best description that I could think of.

I think it was in an '08 interview where Zimmer said he wrote a theme for BB. But when it was time for him and Howard to score TDK, he didn't use it (and wrote a different one instead). It was the reoccurring theme in the end credits, I think.

But I wouldn't be opposed if a new composer comes on, and goes back to the solely orchestral palette that made Williams, Elfman, Walker, and Goldenthal's contributions so good. I really miss that sound.

Mind Heist.

To be honest, I'd rather a new composer, much as I love his TDKT work and his overall body of work (The Thin Red Line is one of the finest scores ever, IMO). Create some distance between this franchise and the last.

That said, I've no idea who I want.

If he can separate himself enough from TDKT work, why not?

He is quite busy though, he's working on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack and I doubt he wants to be known as "the guy who does superhero soundtracks"
