Ahoy Collider readers, and welcome to Soundtrack Saturday. This is a new recurring feature you’ll see here on Collider from time to time in which we take an opportunity to highlight memorable scores and soundtracks from the world of film and television. We love celebrating actors and directors as much as anyone, but we’re also big fans of every aspect of filmmaking, so the aim of Soundtrack Saturday is to spread the love to the composers that provide crucial and sometimes iconic soundtracks to a wide range of films.
For this edition of Soundtrack Saturday, I’ve chosen to take a look back at the varying Batman themes over the years now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is finally in theaters. The tone and approach to scoring Batman has changed a lot since the caped crusader’s big screen debut in 1966’s Batman: The Movie, so let’s take a trip down memory lane.
