Composer discusses soundtrack 'dilemma'

Hans Zimmer is set to compose the soundtrack for the forthcoming Batman Vs Superman.

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he had been asked to return to score the Man Of Steel sequel, which will bring together Gotham’s caped vigilante crimefighter and Clark Kent.

“We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” he said.

Zimmer, who scored all three of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, admitted it would be difficult to score another picture involving the iconic character.

“That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma. I don’t want to betray, if that’s the right word, the Dark Knight movies. That was Christian, it was Christian’s role,” he said. “It’s not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable to that period. So it’s really about, ‘Is there something else I can find that I haven’t tapped into?’ Which I don’t know until I sit down with Zack.”

It was recently revealed that Batman Vs Superman has been delayed by 10 months and will now open on May 6, 2016 to “allow the filmmakers time to realise fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story”. The film was originally slated for a Summer 2015 release.
