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

October 12th, 2013 by bash 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.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
