It’s like peanut butter and chocolate, no matter how you combine the two, it’s going to be magical. Who better to score a movie that combines Superman and Batman, than the man who successfully scored both in their individual movies, but has anyone bothered to ask Hans Zimmer yet?Vulture sat down with Zimmer and asked for an update:
Honestly, I’m just sort of grappling with that right now. Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don’t want to go and take what I did with Chris and just plonk it into another movie. There isn’t one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it.
Zimmer admitted that he hasn’t enjoyed working on sequels that much:
I didn’t really enjoy myself much on Pirates 4.
That doesn’t mean he is ruling anything out though:
I really enjoyed working with Zack Snyder, so part of it would be a personal decision. At the same time, I wouldn’t want to put the ideas I used in the Chris Nolan Batman movies into a . It just wouldn’t feel right.
Finally Zimmer laid it all out:
I’m a procrastinator, and right now, I don’t want to make a decision, Zack hasn’t talked to me about it, so I don’t have to worry about it! I’ll worry about it when I have to worry about it, and then, if I’m lucky, I’ll have an idea. If I have an idea, I can do something with that, but if I don’t have an idea, then my good idea is going to be, ‘Get somebody else.’
There’s still a lot of time until the July 17th 2015 release date, even though Zack Snyder‘s Superman versus Batman started shooting some scenes last weekend. I can’t imagine Hans Zimmer not being involved in some capacity, even if it is only as an advisory consultant. Zimmer has been careful to leave that door open in every interview we’ve seen, just like this one.
What do you think?
