Hans Zimmer tapped to score 'Man of Steel'
EXCLUSIVE: Hans Zimmer, who worked on all three films in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, is set to reteam with the filmmaker once again, as Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have tapped him to score their Superman pic MAN OF STEEL. In addition to BATMAN BEGINS, THE DARK KNIGHT and this summer’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, Zimmer worked with Nolan on INCEPTION for which he received an Oscar nomination. He has been nominated for nine Oscars and previously won for Disney’s THE LION KING. John Williams was nominated for an Oscar for creating the iconic theme to Richard Donner’s original SUPERMAN in 1978. MAN OF STEEL will mark the first Snyder-directed pic on which the helmer hasn’t worked with composer Tyler Bates, who scored DAWN OF THE DEAD, 300, WATCHMEN and SUCKER PUNCH.
