Hans Zimmer Retires From Scoring Superhero Movies

Yes, you read that right. During a recent appearance on BBC HARDtalk, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice composer Hans Zimmer announced that he’s done with superhero movies. Zimmer has scored over 150 movies, but it sounds like he won’t be adding another comic book movie to the list in the future. Here’s what he had to say:

“I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years ago, so The Dark Knight Trilogy might be three movies to you, to me it was 11 years of my life. This one was very hard for me to do, to try to find new language.”

Well, it seems that he won’t be scoring Zack Snyder’s Justice League after all, which is kind of a bummer. Here’s hoping that he’s going to change his mind, but for now it looks like Snyder will definitely have to find another composer to fill his shoes.

The Academy-Award winning composer is most notably known for his work on The Dark Knight trilogy, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, The Lion King, Inception, Interstellar and many other movies. Which Hans Zimmer score is your personal favorite? Let us know in the comment section below.
