Despite rumours linking Zimmer to the film, he had been vocal in his desire to distance himself from the project. He described himself as being emotionally invested in Batman, so unable to conceive of a vision for a Superman character. As well as this, he expressed his admiration for John Williams’ iconic score to the 1978 original film.
"[It] happens to be one of his greatest themes … So no. And I’m not thinking of rewriting Beethoven’s Ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless task, you know? So that’s unequivocally a no."
Something, however, has changed his mind and now we will certainly be getting a high quality score to accompany Zack Snyder’s take on the legendary character.
Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon and Amy Adams. It will be released June 2013.
