Hans Zimmer uncertain whether he’ll return for Batman Vs. Superman

Having been responsible for a trio of memorable scores for the Dark Knight series, before repeating the trick on Man Of Steel , one would imagine that Hans Zimmer would be the most likely candidate to play composer for Batman Vs. Superman .

However, the addition of Batman to the Superman series has complicated things for Zimmer, who is yet to make a final decision on whether or not he wants to return.

“It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now,” says the composer. “Quite honestly, I’ve gotta sit down with Zack [ Snyder ] and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well.

“It’s a different Batman; Christian Bale and what I did with Chris [ Nolan ], that needs to have its autonomous life. I don’t want to go and now appropriate that and put that into the other Batman.”

On the subject of Affleck however, Zimmer is far less equivocal…

“He’ll be a really good Batman,” says Zimmer of Ben Affleck’s casting. “It’s really quite simple, the man isn’t a fool and he’s not gonna set himself up for a fall. He’s a great filmmaker in his own right, he really is.

“I think he’s become a much more astute actor and I think he’ll make a great Batman, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing. So do I think it’s a good idea?  Yes, I think it’s a good idea. I think he’s great casting.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman Vs. Superman will open in the US on 17 July 2015.
