Hans Zimmer talks his conflict over returning to the world of Batman

October 12th, 2013 by Marc Comments

 Composer Hans Zimmer has been talking about the conflict he has been having with himself over whether to go back to the world of Batman for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel.

The Dark Knight, ofcourse, will be central to the untitled film which will see Ben Affleck take on the alter ego of Bruce Wayne.

Speaking to, the composer said he hasn’t made a final decision on whether to score the film.

“It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now,” he said. ” Quite honestly, I’ve gotta sit down with Zack and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well.  It’s a different Batman; Christian Bale and what I did with Chris, that needs to have its autonomous life.  I don’t want to go and now appropriate that and put that into the other Batman.”

What could sway him is his great working relationship with Snyder: “Of course I can see myself doing it, first of all because I love working with Zack,” he continued. ” I think you can tell from that score we had a lot of fun, and I think it was inventive.  Once I got over the whole ‘Oh my God I’m not as good as John Williams’ thing which, I’m different!  And it’s different times.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
