    Evan Peters has confirmed Hans Zimmer will score X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

    This is a great choice imo. Zimmer never disappoints.

    Huh. That's interesting. I thought Han was walking away from CBMs.

    Which makes this move interesting. Has he seen something in Dark Phoenix he likes?

    it is quite a coup for them to get him. quite honestly zimmer shouldn't have done bvs after doing dark knight tirlogy just like danny elfman shouldn't have done justice league after doing burton batman films.

    My god, can you imagine "Interstellar" level music on this film, especially the space scene?

    Not really a fan of Zimmers CBM work. Maybe it’s just cause he’s worked on so many bad ones.

    But LOL at the clear studio notes/talking points every cast member has gotten. It’s like I’m reading the same interviews over and over again...

    Yeah, not gonna lie. Zimmer is perfect for a Dark Phoenix movie. If they're gonna go all out with the chaos and destruction.

    Guess that "I'm retiring from superhero" business was all for naught. I suppose the large check he received was too good to turn down though. This is rather unexpected too. At this rate Zimmer will score every franchise in existence.

    He's walking away from arthouse comic book movies. :woot:

    Just came across this bit of news on Film Music Reporter. And am not excited at all. Aside from AS-M2 his superhero scores don't impress me. I knew it was all talk from him about retiring from scoring anymore superhero movies after BvS. It seems it didn't take much to bring him back. They should've just kept Ottman. And as much as I don't care for Henry Jackman's X-Men First Class score they should've brought him back if they didn't/couldn't get Ottman because this'll most likely be the last film in this current franchise. It would've came full circle back to Jackman. But whatever. I don't think Zimmer will be as involved and will most likely rely on his collaborators to take over.

    Jackman could've been great but I'm tired of Ottman's theme

    It's always nice to see someone well known join the film. I wonder if he would come up with his own theme for the X-Men, like Powell did in X3.

    I don't know if Zimmer could make a difference to Kinberg's vision for the film. But at least they didn't hire a first time composer for this film.

    No I can't.

    The excellence of a composer is highly dependent on the director he or she is collaborating with.

    And Kinberg is not Nolan.

    Yeah that's a very good point.

    Though I really like Ww's movie theme that debuted in bvs and that movie sucked. I think this could be one of those films that Imight appreciate when it comes to technical side.

    Either they signed a big cheque for him or there's something that interests him about the movie.

    Pretty good news. It's just as likely they signed a big check, but as I suspect they're spending less on this than XMA, I am going to hope that he was genuinely impressed by some assemblage of footage. It might then give credence to this being a different kind of superhero movie since Zimmer said a few years ago that he couldn't find anything fresh to say about typical superhero movies.

    At the very least, I expect some epic drums when she goes nova. :)

    there have been rumors dark phoenix is actully biggest budgeted x-men film ever. which is partly why they are waiting for special effects to be ready before showing any footage.
