Zimmer composed the score for Batman Begins and the Dark Knight, and with Christopher Nolan producing the 2012 reboot of Superman, it comes as no real surprise he would approach the man who did such an amazing job with the score on Nolan’s massive Batman movies.
Williams theme is so iconic to the Superman character, Zimmer certainly has his work cut out for him, and it’s already caused a stir around the internet, many not being happy about the change.
I am a huge fan of the Williams theme and was the one thing for a reboot I didn’t want to see change. However if your going to make a movie your own, completely different from previous outings we have seen before then why not? And Zimmer’s work is certainly not something to diminish.
Feature Film Auditions, a very welcomed prospect by fans after the heavily critisised Kate Bosworth’s take on the character in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns.
The remake will be an origin story and looks to focus more on Clark Kent as a news reporter travelling around the world (West Africa being rumoured a lot) and getting used to his powers before returning home to become the hero he is born to be, however this is not confirmed.
The script is due Monday 6th December 2010.
UPDATE: Zimmer not involved after all? (07/12/2010)
