Zimmer Will NOT Score Superman

Superman_Chris ReeveContrary to eariler reports, composer Hans Zimmer (THE DARK KNIGHT) told The Hollywood Reporter that he would NOT be scoring Zack Synder’s SUPERMAN Reboot.

Zimmer said:

No! Absolutely not! You know, I can’t even remember ever talking about Superman… How can I say it: My heart belongs to Batman. I wouldn’t even know how to go and give voice to it. I haven’t thought about it.

Asked if he would be be interested in following in the footsteps of John Williams, composer of  SUPERMAN THE MOVIE’s epic score, he had this to say:

“ Right! John Williams, the greatest living composer — full stop. And that happens to be one of his greatest themes. So no. And I’m not thinking of rewriting Beethoven’s Ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless task, you know?

So that’s unequivocally a no. I have never spoken with Zack Snyder.”

Offhand, I’d say we can probably take Hans Zimmer at his word that he is not planning to write the music for any Superman project currently in the cards.
