Listen to a Full Track from Hans Zimmer’s MAN OF STEEL Score

     May 6, 2013


While the most recent theatrical trailer for director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel delivered the goods visually, it also gave us our first preview of composer Hans Zimmer’s score for the film.  Crafting a new Superman theme was no small task as John Williams’ iconic theme will likely always be synonymous with the hero, but it was important for Zimmer to come up with something that solidified Man of Steel as a wholly new take on the character.  The result, as evidenced in the trailer and in this recently released full track (titled “An Ideal Hope”), is a magnificently pulsing theme that builds to a fantastic crescendo while bringing to mind the ascent of a hero like Superman from confused boy to Protector of Earth.

Hit the jump to listen to a full track from Hans Zimmer’s score, which is essentially an extended version of what we heard in the trailer, and click here to read the full details regarding the soundtrack release.  Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th, and Zimmer’s score will be released on June 11th.
