Hans Zimmer Composing ‘Man of Steel’ Score

The upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel features the likes of Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne and director Zack Snyder, and now an all-star composer will add his name to the production.

Even if the final product ends up being less than terrific, at least “Steel” should have some great music, as Variety reveals that Hans Zimmer will compose its score. This marks the fourth collaboration between Academy Award-winning composer and Christopher Nolan, who’s on board as a producer. Zimmer, who won his Academy Award for scoring The Lion King, composed soundtracks for Nolan’s three latest films, 2008’s The Dark Knight, 2010’s Inception, and this year’s The Dark Knight Rises, the upcoming conclusion to Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Additionally, this will be the first time that Snyder will not employ the services of Tyler Bates for one of his live-action projects; two-time Academy Award nominee David Hirschfelder scored Snyder’s first and only animated feature to date, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.

Another loud and epic score from Zimmer will head our way as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel hits theaters in the United States on June 13, 2013 and arrives in other theaters across the globe the same month.
