Composer Michael Giacchino revealed he is searching for new types of music to use in The Batman.
Warner Bros. will once again reimagine one of its most iconic heroes with The Batman with Matt Reeves in the director’s chair for the Dark Knight’s latest big-screen outing. Joining the creative team of The Batman is a composer, who has worked with Matt Reeves’ on all of the director’s films since Cloverfield in 2008.
Of course, Michael Giacchino has a lot to live up to considering Batman was already received memorable scores from composers such as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, and Shirley Walker. Fortunately, it appears Michael Giacchino is hard at work trying to ensure his score for The Batman will stand out. During an interview on Preston & Steve’s Fun Size Podcast, Michael Giacchino noted that he is turning to Eastern music along with other genres to find new types of instruments to incorporate into his score for The Batman:
“I’m actually kind of in the middle of that right now. I’m trying to figure out some things for Batman. And while I do have the theme written and we actually have recorded a version of the suite and everything so that Matt can have it while he’s working and he can have it on set. The bones are there, but I still feel like there’s still one little thing missing, and it’s exactly something like that. I haven’t quite found it yet. But, I will.”
