Big news. Great news. Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Pirates Trilogy, Inception, The Lion King) has been tapped by Warner bros. to lend his ear to the hotly anticipated Man of Steel.
He’s had an illustrious career and a very good relationship with Warner Bros. as of late scoring multiple films for said studio. And pairing that with the strength of the professional relationship he’s forged working so closely with Christopher Nolan the last few years, scoring everything he’s done since Batman Begins, this news only makes sense that he’s been asked to take this job on.
This only adds more weight to the gravitas that Man of Steel possesses. Boasting a cast of Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora, Laurence Fishburn as Perry White, Richard Schiff as Dr. Hamilton, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian father, Ayelet Zureras as Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara Lor-Van, Kevin Costner as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane, who plays his wife Martha.
Not to mention written by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan, produced by Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas, (and Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder) and directed by Zack Snyder.
Jee-zus. Too good.
Too bad for Tyler Bates, a Snyder music regular since Dawn of The Dead, I’m sure a lot of parties thought he was a shoe-in.
Man of Steel is set for release June 14th, 2013 and I’m very excited.
