Hans Zimmer to Score ‘Man of Steel’
DC hasn’t had as much luck with movies outsider of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman movies of late, so it’s no surprise that for ‘Man of Steel‘ they’ve tried to make it as Nolan-y as possible. The ‘Dark Knight Rises‘ director is not only responsible for ‘Steel’s story and is its producer, his Batman composer Hans Zimmer is now attached to score the film.
This news comes from Variety, and though Zimmer has yet to reach the pop culture heights of someone like John Williams, nor does he have the critical adulation of someone like Bernard Hermann, he’s one of the go-to composers for big movies. Having scored hit films like the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ sequels, and ‘The Rock,’ he’s covered just about every genre, and has worked with filmmakers like Terrence Malick, James L. Brooks, and Ridley Scott over the course of his near-thirty year film career.
Of course his biggest contribution to pop culture at the moment is the BRRRRRRRAAAAAWWWWRWRRRMRMRMMRMRMMMMM from ‘Inception.’ It’s the closest anyone’s come to John Williams’s “duh dun” for ‘Jaws’ in terms of instant score recognition.
His hiring says little about the movie, which isn’t due until June 14, 2013. Hopefully we’ll be getting a trailer shortly, as they’re done shooting.
