Hans Zimmer to score Batman again

Hans Zimmer has revealed he has been asked to score the new Batman vs Superman film.
The 12 Years A Slave composer wrote the music for Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy as well as director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot Man Of Steel, and has told Digital Spy that Zack has asked him to revisit the superhero again.
Referring to Nolan's secretive project Interstellar which he is scoring, he confirmed: "We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."
Hans added that he wanted to come up with a different theme tune for this version of Batman - which will be played by Ben Affleck opposite Henry Cavill's Superman - than the one he had done for the previous version.
He admitted: "That's my problem, that's my dilemma. I don't want to betray, if that's the right word, the Dark Knight movies. That was Christian, it was Christian's role.
"It's not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable to that period. So it's really about, 'Is there something else I can find that I haven't tapped into?' Which I don't know until I sit down with Zack."
Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter have all been confirmed for the Man Of Steel sequel, which will see Batman and Superman together for the first time in a live-action film.
Batman vs Superman is due to be released in cinemas on April 30, 2016.
