Even the most passionate critics of 'Man of Steel' tend to agree that Hans Zimmer's bombastic and emotional score is a highlight of the film, so it wasn't surprising at all when he was invited back to score 'Batman vs. Superman.' What is surprising is how he's choosing to go about it. In keeping with the confrontational aspect of the film, Zimmer will provide all of Superman's music and another composer will provide the score for the Caped Crusader.

Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy helped pave the way for the current wave of superhero film mania by introducing audiences to a different kind of superhero film: one that was darker and more serious, and a bit more cinematic than some of the cornier predecessors. But would Nolan, whose sci-fi drama 'Interstellar' hits theaters this month, ever return to the genre? You might think not, but then you might be wrong. In a recent interview, Nolan answered that question, and talked about his relationship with Warner Bros., and being asked to produce a Batman reboot and the 'Justice League' film.
Comic book fans surely remember the '90s. It was a strange time to be a superhero fan. A dark time. A time when Joel Schumacher was directing Batman movies and baffling the entire world. A decade before Christopher Nolan made 'Batman Begins,' Schumacher made 'Batman Forever,' which featured Jim Carrey as The Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face.

Few characters have had the longevity of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego and this show is evidence of why. There's a reason this show is a "75th Anniversary" tribute -- Batman is whatever his fans want him to be.
'The Dark Knight' is one of the most popular superhero movies ever. Heck, it might even be one of the most popular movies of any genre in the past 10 years.
