Hans Zimmer Talks SUPERMAN/BATMAN Movie and Ben Affleck Playing Batman

Since Hans Zimmer has scored the last three Batman movies and the last Superman movie, he inevitably received the question if he’ll be scoring Zack Snyder‘s upcoming untitled film that brings the two superheroes together.  Speaking to Red Carpet News, Zimmer said that he thought he had closed the door on the Dark Knight, but like Michael Corleone, he keeps getting sucked back in.  “I’ll have to think about that one,” said Zimmer.  “I might give you a new Batman if I do it.”  Since the casting of Ben Affleck signals a complete break with Christopher Nolan‘s trilogy, Zimmer clearly feels like he can’t go back to the same themes, and I imagine he would have to find something that can fit in with his score for Man of Steel should he decide to keep going with Snyder’s sequel.

Hit the jump for what Zimmer had to say about Affleck playing Batman.  The film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane.  The untitled Superman/Batman movie is due out July 17, 2015.

Zimmer tells Red Carpet News [via CS] that he supports Affleck’s casting, which isn’t much of a surprise since I seriously doubt Zimmer would tell a reporter, “Fuck Affleck,” and then walk away.  However, Zimmer did explain why he likes the fact that Affleck will be donning the cape and cowl:

“I actually think it’s a really good choice, because #1 he’s a great filmmaker. He’s smart. He wouldn’t have taken it if he had set himself up for a fall. And, you know, he’s a bit older these days and that’s what we need, and he’s got a good chin.”

Josh Brolin’s chin could not be reached for comment.
