In a recent interview with Collider, Hans Zimmer was asked about the upcoming ‘Batman vs Superman’ movie. Zimmer revealed that he hasn’t decided whether he’ll write the score for the sequel yet, as he is yet to meet with director Zack Snyder.
It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now. Quite honestly, I’ve got to 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.
Well, thats what we (Christopher Nolan fans) want, we dont want the new Batman to do anything with the Nolan trilogy. This can be a bit of a challenge for Zimmer. He also shared his views on Ben Affleck being cast as the new Batman:
He’ll be a really good Batman. It’s really quite simple, the man isn’t a fool and he’s not gonna set himself up for a fall. He’s a great filmmaker in his own right, he really is. I think he’s become a much more astute actor and I think he’ll make a great Batman, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing. So do I think it’s a good idea? Yes, I think it’s a good idea. I think he’s great casting.
Zimmer also explained about the backlash when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker. Check out the video for more details.
