Hans Zimmer To Compose Wonder Woman & Aquaman Themes For Batman v Superman


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").

Watch and listen to Hans Zimmer's responses in the video below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice leaps into theaters March 25th, 2016. The cast includes: Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenbeg as Lex Luthor and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

  1. Zimmer is the best loved what he did with the past DC movies and the Sherlock Holmes films

  2. DC not every one has to work on every movie. Tap into some of the youth and new comers in the movie business. 

  3. I think once the DCCU is established we will begin to see them branch out but theses early films they need the big "names" even in the supporting roles.

    Hans is a good composer but I don't want this. This sounds like a bad idea.

  4. Doesn't anyone proof read articles before they are published? "Zimmer started off by saying that the score has been written yet..." It "has" or "hasn't" been written?
