In the past Hans Zimmer was asked if he would score the Superman reboot entitled Man of Steel. With Christopher Nolan as the producer, it was safe to assume that Zimmer would compose, right? But then again, Zack Snyder is the one directing. So it wasn’t too surprising when Zimmer initially said he won’t score the movie.

Keyword being “initially”. Zimmer had a change of heart and will compose the score for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

I’m interested in how Zimmer will approach the theme for Superman as opposed to Batman’s. Since after all, Batman is the hero who is meant to be in the shadows and feared; while Superman is meant to be a shining symbol of hope.

Man of Steel is slated for release June 14, 2013.
