We have two brief pieces of Superman: The Man of Steel news for you today.  First up, composer Hans Zimmer will provide a brand-new score for the upcoming reboot.  Speaking to with NBC San Diego’s Scott Huver [via AICN], Zimmer said:

“It’s a hard one, but I followed one of the most iconic things on Batman with Chris as well, and it’s the same thing. You are allowed to reinvent, but you have to try to be as good or at least as iconic and it has to resonate and it has to become a part of the zeitgeist. That’s the job. On Gladiator I remember people always talking about Spartacus and I kept telling them, ‘When you saw Spartacus and how it affected it you, that’s how I want a modern audience to be affected by what we do now.’ So I think ultimately you’re supposed to reinvent.”

I think Zimmer turned in one of the best scores of the year with Inception and I’m fascinated to hear what he’ll do with Superman.  Hit the jump for more on the upcoming reboot.

In a recent interview with Hitfix, producer Emma Thomas says that Superman is now in Zack Snyder’s hands as she and producer Christopher Nolan are now getting into The Dark Knight Rises.  According to Hitfix, “Thomas reiterated that they brought it to an appropriate screenplay and it’s now Snyder’s picture.”  The film is currently set for a holiday 2012 release.  The Dark Knight Rises is set to open on July 20, 2012.
