Last night at the 87th Academy Awards, MTV's Josh Horowitz spoke with film composer Hans Zimmer ("Interstellar") about his upcoming film, Batman v Superman.
Zimmer started off by saying that the score hasn't been written yet, but he has got a couple ideas for what he'll do with it. Then Josh asked him if he needed to create Aquaman and Wonder Woman's themes in Batman v Superman? "I'm trying," Zimmer revealed. "Put it that way. We're in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that is what you want to do."
Zimmer was then asked if he knew which other films in the new DC cinematic universe he might be scoring. "No, not at all," Zimmer replied. "Because the studio is going to hedge its bets if I ruin this one."
Zimmer then goes on to say how important it is that he makes the score for Batman v Superman different from what he did with Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, which he spent ten years of his life working on. To make sure that he didn't "betray Chris" he handed off the responsibility of scoring Batman's theme to his friend Junkie XL ("Mad Max: Fury Road").
