Hans Zimmer not scoring THE MAN OF STEEL
Well, it was a fun thought while it lasted.
At the start of December, a party held in honor of Chris Nolan’s latest film, INCEPTION, bore fruit hinting at the possibility of Nolan’s sonic collaborator and right hand man music-wise, Hans Zimmer, scoring the upcoming Zack Snyder Superman reboot, THE MAN OF STEEL.
Now however, that appears to not be true.
THR recently spoke to the sonic auteur, and while it seems like a bit of a stretch (and a little awkward at this stage), he places some of the blame on the horrible murder of legendary publicist, Ronni Chasen. Here’s what he has to say:
"You know, it’s like some dirty quote taken out of context. Let’s just be absolutely straight here: I have never in my life met Zack Snyder. I think I need to give him aring. But here’s the thing: No Ronni [Chasen]. Suddenly all sorts of stuff starts flowing around with no warning."
Along with saying that his “heart belongs to Batman,” Zimmer seems steadfast in his denial of scoring the hotly anticipated Superman reboot. Personally, while I’m a relatively huge fan of Zimmer and his work, I’d much rather see a new, less orchestral, take on the Superman, so this definitely doesn’t hinder any of my anticipation for the film. That said, you could have done a lot worse than Zimmer.
