Hans Zimmer bring Junkie XL in on Batman V Superman score…

November 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Hans Zimmer did a great job on Batman with director Chris Nolan. He then did a great job on Man of Steel with Zack Snyder. He was then in a unique position where he was called in to score Batman V Superman, meaning he had to work out a different take on Gotham’s guardian.

But he’s been very resourceful and come up with an idea that could turn out to be a masterstroke; he’s bringing his friend, musician Junkie XL who he worked with on Megamind, Madagascar 3, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises to name a few, to do the Batman side of the score, while he focuses on Superman: “I agonised over it, so much so that finally, I went, I don’t want to betray what Chris, James Newton Howard and I did. And so I asked Zack [Snyder] if it would be OK if I called a friend in. And I’m going to be working with Junkie XL, who really is a great friend. He just finished the Mad Max score. I said to him, ‘You take care of Batman. I’ll do the other guy.’ And Zack loved that idea. It’s a way out.”

While to two did work together on Man of Steel, this should be interesting as it will give Batman and Superman two very different feels in the movie itself.

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….
