I wish they released more music from it. Hopefully the S:TAS music will get released soon as well.

I agree. It's hard to pick between the two, imo. Elfman set the tone but Walker expanded on it and perfected it. So it's tough, but they both did Batman justice musically, imo.

I liked Powell's X3 and Hancock scores. I wouldn't mind if he'd scored MOS instead of Zimmer either, but it's too late for that now.
Oh yeah, I damn near lost my **** when I heard that little intro for The Flash on Superman TAS. And Shirley Walker's Flash score, the whole series' soundtrack is fantastic, I agree. I have downloaded a good bit of it, but thank you for the link, hopefully I rub some pennies together and grab that!

The whole thing is great, but 7:46, and then from 10:12 and on, then the sad part at 12:25 and the build up to the end are some parts I really like about Shirley Walker's work on the tv show.

This!

But also I checked out that Bible track by Zimmer, Holy crap that felt Heroic and Uplifting!

If he can do something like this then Bravo I can see the film being absolutely Epic.

Here's that Bible Track you gotta let it build up so it plays the Melody part, I didn't think Zimmer could do one where you could humm the tune aftewards but he has so I'm more optimistic with the idea of him doing it now! Wait until 1:56 mins it gets so epic after that! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPBg4R9-vMA

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.

I know exactly which ones you are talking about, and man they are fantastic. I haven't been able to find them all on youtube yet myself, but for $20 for every track on the show with that link you shared with me the other day, that's a fantastic price. I so need to buy that asap. I miss the days when characters had good soundtracks to go with them. Shirley doesn't get even half of the credit she deserves. I half wish they'd just use the show's music when a movie is made (if it ever happens) haha!

Wow I'm surprised this hasn't been posted here yet, but looks like Watertower Music (No surprise there.) is releasing Zimmer's MOS score. It'll be released June 11. And is already available for pre-order at Amazon. No tracklisting or artwork yet.

So I was just browsing through Amazon and came across this. It's funny because it says "Themes from the Superman film Man of Steel". It has one track on this particular page and when you click on the play button to sample it, all you hear is the music from the full trailer. How in the world is something like this even legal?

No, it's not official. It's just a placeholder FMM placed. Chances are the actual CD album will use that 'Superman in handcuffs' poster or eventual one-sheet artwork.

It's a track by Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy named 'Elegy'

When I heard that during the trailer ,
I assumed it was lifted from another movie and used as Filler Music.
Movies do that sometimes in trailers when the actual music isnt done yet .
But, that track is quite beautiful.

This has probably been posted before, but these are my favorite fanmade tracks. I really like "Birth Of Kal El." Dare I say it, some of Mattia's tracks have a sensitivity to them that Zimmer sometimes lacks in recent scores. But hopefully, MOS will be the film that makes Hans return to the soft-synth blend he perfected in the 90s.

I figure I'd post this in here too, CNN interview with Hans on MOS:

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/04/05/sh...-man-of-steel/

(CNN) -- The secrecy surrounding "Man of Steel," due June 14, is pretty extraordinary, but composer Hans Zimmer was able to give CNN a glimpse of what to expect when we caught up with him this week regarding the score he did for "The Bible."

Asked if the two projects had anything in common, since both involve a savior figure (Jesus, Kal-el) sent by his father to Earth, Zimmer laughed and said, "Yes. Yes is the answer. Once you see Superman, you'll see how close you are with your question."

"Both stories are passions," Zimmer continued, "about a struggle to do the right thing. For Superman, it was a really simple question for me. What does it take to become a good man? To be good? And what does that mean in our more and more complex society? Do any of these values still resonate with us?"

Zimmer said he came to this understanding about director Zack Snyder's take on Superman (which reboots the series, instead of coming in at a later point a la "Superman Returns") because he was questioning how he would score the film and not remind audiences of John Williams' iconic fanfare theme. "Look, that was daunting," Zimmer confessed. "Seriously. He's the greatest film composer out there, without a doubt, and it happens to be one of his iconic pieces of music, so I spent three months just procrastinating and not even getting a start on the thing, because I was so intimidated: 'Oh my God, I'm following in John Williams' footsteps.'"

His way around this, he said, was to look at the Superman story in a "very different way." "I kept thinking of the story as, What if you are extraordinary, and your entire ambition is to join humanity? To become human? What does it mean to become human? What does it mean to be an outsider who really wants to join the human race?"

"Man of Steel," which replaces Brandon Routh with Henry Cavill, is the origin story of Superman, starting with a young Clark Kent discovering that he has extraordinary powers and is not from planet Earth. As he grows up, he learns where he came from and what he was sent to this planet to do, as he becomes a symbol of hope for humanity. The film also stars Russell Crowe as Jor-el (Kal-el's birth father on Krypton), Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent (his adoptive parents), Michael Shannon as General Zod (so expect some trouble there), Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White, and Amy Adams as reporter/love interest Lois Lane. ("She's fun and sassy, in control, getting into trouble, and always looking for a headline!" Adams enthused earlier).

While it remains to be confirmed, the latest rumor is that Mackenzie Gray is playing Lex Luthor, although he doesn't appear in the trailer.

Coming off three Dark Knight films directed by Christopher Nolan ("Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight," and "The Dark Knight Rises"), Zimmer also didn't want to do "another really dark" superhero movie. "Everything's tinged with irony and sarcasm and bitterness and darkness these days," he said. But this Superman is something lighter, he said, "celebrating everything that was good and fine about America," such as small towns "where people don't lock their doors, neighbors get together, and families are families."

"What was important for Superman was the simple fact that none of us pay much attention to the Midwest," Zimmer said. "I know America mainly by the big cities, but if you go into the Midwest, there is a people there and there is a country there. And I thought it was important that the decent folk, simple folk be the heart of the story, and a character who is guileless, who isn't complicated in the sort of flawed way our Dark Knight is, and isn't political in any way. He's just striving to become a better part of humanity."

This perspective on Superman, the German-born composer said, is something that he came by in part because he's a foreigner. "I think partly what we foreigners are good at is looking at America, not in a judgmental way, but wide-eyed, and seeing the things you take for granted and presenting them in a new way," he added. "Like for 'Thelma and Louise' and the Grand Canyon, most American kids wouldn't want to go there for their holiday, but to us it's a magical, magnificent place."

Sonically, this treatment of America comes across via a grouping of pedal steel guitars (instead of the usual string section), banging titanium and steel sculptures, and organizing "a who's who of drummers" in a 12-member drum circle, including Jason Bonham, Sheila E. and Pharrell Williams. "The great thing about Superman is that everybody loves Superman," Zimmer said with a laugh. "It's very easy making the call and saying, 'Hey, can you come?' I remember phoning Pharrell and him saying, 'I'm right in the middle of producing the Beyonce album in Miami.' 'Jason Bonham's in Miami, and he's getting on a plane!' Next morning, there's Pharrell, looking a little bleary-eyed."

As a producer on "Man of Steel," Nolan, who also collaborated on the story, initially acted as a sounding board for some of Zimmer's ideas ("getting rid of my demons," as he put it) but soon stepped aside so he wouldn't be "a mistress in the mix" between Zimmer and director Zack Snyder, especially since Zimmer's involvement in the whole project stemmed from a misunderstanding in the first place.

"A journalist asked me (at an 'Inception' party) if I was going to do Superman, and I hadn't even heard of it, so I went, 'Absolutely no way,'" Zimmer said. "Somehow in the noise of that party, that got misconstrued as 'Absolutely Hans is doing it.' It was all over the Internet that I was doing Superman, and I'd never even met Zack! So I phoned him up, 'I'm really sorry, this wasn't my doing, this is a misunderstanding.' And he said, 'Oh! It's great that you phoned. Maybe we should meet and talk.'"

So they did, and Nolan urged Zimmer to sign up. "I remember him going, 'Of course you can do it. What's the big deal? I did Batman.' And I said, 'Excuse me, you went to Warner Bros. with an idea of how you were going to do Batman, and you're saying I'm supposed to do Superman, but I don't have the idea in my head.' I have to sneak up on it!" And with Snyder, now he has.
