When it was announced that Warner Bros. and DC were bringing us a Batman vs. Superman movie, it was almost a given that legendary composer Hans Zimmer would once again be brought on board to compose the score for the project. Hans was the man responsible for doing the score for all of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies, as well as composing the score for Man of Steel.
Now that it has been officially confirmed that Hans Zimmer is back on board to compose the score for the Batman vs. Superman movie, the composer has been talking about some of the issues that he will have to face to work on the project. Hans has admitted that one of the biggest obstacles he faces is coming up with a new sound for the Caped Crusader and avoiding a repeat sound from the Dark Knight trilogy.
Zimmer told Digital Spy, "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. 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."
As well as coming up with a new sound for Batman, Hans Zimmer will also have to create a new sound to associate with Wonder Woman, who is also in the Batman vs. Superman movie. The Batman vs. Superman film will see Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Batman vs. Superman will open on May 6, 2016.
