Why not some orchestral score by James Horner?

Does anyone even believe that Zimmer isn't coming back?

Bring in two composers, like with BB, TDK and Inception. Let Zimmer handle the Superman/Metropolis stuff and someone else for Gotham and Batman. My personal choices are:

Thomas Newman (Skyfall)
Ramin Djiwadi (Iron Man, Pacific Rim)
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network)

Can someone post this BB Batman theme? I only remember the same main theme throughout the trilogy

I want Zimmer to return. I'm a continuity guy, same soundtrack, same cast etc etc. One thing (of many) I disliked about Iron Man 3 was its sudden change is soundtrack. It really made it separate from the films before.

Plus Zimmer's soundtrack was awesome and I'd love to see him develop it.

Zimmer seems natural, plus he said he's got unused stuff from TDK, specifically a Batman "theme". So he could use that, and write new "Gotham" music.

Nothing would please me more if the narcissistic German media whore known as Hans Zimmer would just go away, but that ain't going to happen. There's no doubt Zimmer will return.

Hans Zimmer is probably going to be it, unless James magically decides to do another Bat-film.

I'm all for Zimmer coming back to do it...just switch up the Batman themes. I just didn't care for it at all which is why I was nervous when he was announced to score Man of Steel

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.

To be fair, Ramin Djawadi has really grown as a composer since 2008. And especialyl since 2004 (Blade: Trinity). Not that I'd change Zimmer.

Words can not describe just how much I do not care for the first Iron Man's score. I'm not going to pull an Elevator Man and personally insult the composer but I will say that I do not enjoy his score at all. It barely qualifies as a score in my mind. I do not remember Iron Man 3's score but I remember being happy that that rockish crap was replaced by an attempt at a real score.

I have no problem with people who aren't fans of Zimmer's scores as this is all opinion based but personally insulting the man is a little odd.

Regarding Man of Steel, I loved what Zimmer came up with. I thought "Arcade" was wonderful and "Flight" was splendid and made me feel alive. I'd be kinda upset if he didn't come back, that's how much I enjoyed his work.

Ennio Morricone, because it will be surreal to have Batman and Superman in the same film.

@ Gianakin
Itís called freedom of speech. If I believe that Zimmer is an overrated, narcissistic, glutton thatís my opinion. But I forgot this is superherohype and when it comes to Zimmer youíre not allowed to have a differing or an opposing opinion. Unless itís a positive one or just high praise. But itís nothing wrong with saying ďZimmerís the greatest composer of all timeĒ and calling him ďthe next John WilliamsĒ . Oh yeah b/c you agree with that. But Iím not allowed to criticize him or his music? WHAT? Look if Hollywood, you, and the many Zimmer fans out there love Zimmer and his recycled regurgitated sounds he produces thatís labeled as music these days. Then fine. Good for you. At least somebodyís enjoying it. But this would be a boring world if we all agreed on everything. Frankly Iím tired of him scoring every superhero tent pole movie he can get his hands on. Thatís why I believe heís a narcissistic glutton. I like variety and quality in film scores. Believe me you and a few others up here would be frustrated too if a composer you thought was mediocre ended scoring every major superhero tent pole movie. Iím only speaking my mind. If a movie (S&B Movie, TAS-M2) I had interest in was being scored by a composer I feel is the wrong choice then Iím going to speak up whether you want to hear my opinion or not. And whether you like it or not. Iím tired of the same overused, generic, clichťd music that we hear in most tent pole movies today. Itís not just Zimmer. Itís his cronies too. As well as Hollywood forcing composers to use Zimmerís techniques for these kinds of movies. If you and many love that generic approach, then fine. Donít expect me to hop on the bandwagon b/c Iím in the minority. I donít fall for the hype of his scores b/c I believe itís PR rubbish. You and many otherís want to fall for it then thatís your right.

@ I SEE SPIDEY
I couldnít care less if you found my opinions and criticisms on Zimmer comical. You may think itís comical but Iím serious as a heart attack. It seems that you and Gianakin are the only ones that have a problem with what I posted (which is my OPINION) about Zimmer. I'm getting the impression that when it comes to criticism of an idol of yours. Some of you can't handle or take it.

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.

There's no way it'll be anyone other than Zimmer. For better or worse, he's simply part of the brand, same as Goyer. I'd love if they brought someone in to collaborate with him, like Newton-Howard, and it would make sense given the film is about two big heroes coming together.

If I had my pick, though, I think it'd be awesome to see Howard Shore take on the scoring duties... solo.
