Hans Zimmer To Score SUPERMAN For Zack Snyder

Composer Hans Zimmer will be creating the musical score for Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman film!

Thompson on Hollywood spoke to Zimmer at a DVD/Blu-ray release party for Inception, where he announced the news. Zimmer knows a thing or two about creating intense and powerful scores, he came up with the scores for Inception and The Dark Knight Returns

According to the site:

On Jan. 1 he starts scoring Chapter 4 in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which shot months ago in Hawaii. He’ll follow that with the Sherlock Holmes sequel, a Kung Fu Panda follow-up; then he’ll work on Nolan’s new Superman chapter.

We can at least rest because the score for Superman is going to be amazing! The news also has broken that  Christopher Nolan has officially handed the Superman script off to Snyder. Nolan will now only be involved again with the Superman film when the screenplay is completely polished. This will allow Nolan to focus all of his attention on The Dark Knight Rises. 
According to Nolan’s wife,

Nolan and David Goyer just had an idea they couldn’t believe wasn’t being explored by Warner Bros. And with Zack Snyder now on board as director, Nolan will be busy making “The Dark Knight Rises” and “we are handing it off to him.” So, take note anyone out there thinking this will be a strange Nolan/Snyder partnership. Thomas reiterated that they brought it to an appropriate screenplay and it’s now Snyder’s picture.

So not only does Superman have a director that knows how to make a visually stunning film, the film now has a great composer!
Superman is scheduled to come out in December 2012.
