Anyone who has seen any of the live action Superman films knows the classic John Williams theme pretty much by heart. It’s one of the most iconic, powerful themes in all of cinema. How does one live up to that? Even 2006’s Superman Returns John Ottman score paid heavy tribute to Williams’ own.
In an interview with CNN, Hans Zimmer discusses his work on the Man of Steel score. After all, Zimmer is no stranger to reinventing a classic theme, having done so with Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and creating a completely different score from Danny Elfman’s classic. How does one tackle John Williams?
“Look, that was daunting. Seriously. He’s the greatest film composer out there, without a doubt, and it happens to be one of his iconic pieces of music, so I spent three months just procrastinating and not even getting a start on the thing, because I was so intimidated: ‘Oh my God, I’m following in John Williams’ footsteps.
Zimmer wanted to approach Man of Steel in a “very different way.” “I kept thinking of the story as, What if you are extraordinary, and your entire ambition is to join humanity? To become human? What does it mean to become human? What does it mean to be an outsider who really wants to join the human race?”
I can’t speak for everyone, but fret not, Mr. Zimmer. I have complete faith in your upcoming score, and if your work with the Batman films are any indication, the Superman franchise is in good hands.
