Hans Zimmer To Add Some BRAAAAHM By Scoring Zack Snyder's 'Man Of Steel'

"It's Zack [Snyder]'s movie so it'd be a bit rude of me to turn up and say I've got a few ideas now," Nolan recently said about when asked about his producing role on "Man Of Steel." "My big point of responsibility was helping shepherd David [Goyer]'s script. When I'm finished with this I'll be there for whatever Zack wants from me, but it's very much his movie." Really, Chris?

"It's Zack [Snyder]'s movie so it'd be a bit rude of me to turn up and say I've got a few ideas now," Nolan recently said about when asked about his producing role on "Man Of Steel." "My big point of responsibility was helping shepherd David [Goyer]'s script. When I'm finished with this I'll be there for whatever Zack wants from me, but it's very much his movie." Really, Chris?

Variety reports that Nolan's Batman trilogy and "Inception" composer Hans Zimmer, will lend his considerable skills to "Man Of Steel." Coincidence? You tell us. It will be the first time Snyder has worked without his usual tunesmith Tyler Bates, so we can't help but wonder if this was his choice or something that was strongly suggested by his producer or the studio. Certainly, with this movie, Warner Bros. wants to make it clear to fans that this Superman reboot is going to be Serious Business, and it definitely points toward the kind of tone this film will have.

We certainly have no complaints as Zimmer has been responsible for some great work with Nolan, but one wonders if sticking so closely to the template -- dark(er) tone, Goyer script, Zimmer score -- if that's not leaving enough room for a character that in the comics, is actually nothing like Bruce Wayne/Batman in personality at all. Hmm. We'll get our first indication at Comic-Con next month when WB kicks off the marketing campaign in earnest. "Man Of Steel" opens on June 14, 2013.
