Warner Bros. is sticking with Hans Zimmer for their next epic superhero movie. The celebrated composer has been asked back to write the score for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel‘s follow-up, Batman vs. Superman.
Zimmer, who also scored Christopher Nolan‘s Batman movies, previously mentioned that he was thinking about not scoring Batman vs. Superman because he didn’t want to put the ideas he used in those films into a Superman movie. But he admitted that he really enjoyed working on Man of Steel
with Snyder. And so, it should come as no surprise that, as the composer told Digital Spy [via ComingSoon], he will return to score the Superman sequel after he’s done with Nolan’s Interstellar.
“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.”
Written by David S. Goyer and directed by Snyder, Batman Vs. Superman will bring back Henry Cavill as Superman and also star Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The movie also features Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons. The movie is set to open on May 6, 2016.
