While Batman V Superman is dividing audiences and critics (yes, some of them liked it), one thing that seems to be well received is Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s score.
Sadly, after also scoring The Dark Knight Trilogy, Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel, Zimmer has said he’s doing scoring superhero gigs.
Chatting to BBC HARDtalk, Zimmer spoke about Batman V Superman and said it was his last gig of that type: “This one was very hard for me to do, to try and find new language.”
“I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years ago, so ‘The Dark Knight’ Trilogy might be three movies to you, to me it was 11 years of my life,” he said, “[but] I have officially retired from the superhero business.”
Zimmer has had a fantastic career with other classics like The Lion King and Inception under his belt, so we’re sorry to hear he’ll not be scoring Justice League or any future movies in the DC or Marvel universes.
However, we hope this is far from him retiring altogether – we know that for now he is working on Inferno and Christopher Nolan;s upcoming Dunkirk.
Let us know your thoughts…
