Hans Zimmer talks MAN OF STEEL and being intimidated by John Williams' Superman score!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I wanted to point you guys at a really interesting story over at CNN where they sit down with Hans Zimmer to discuss his work and then proceed to mostly just talk about his upcoming score to Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL.
When discussing the project, he cuts right to the core interpretation of the iconic character in this go-round:
"For Superman, it was a really simple question for me. What does it take to become a good man? To be good? And what does that mean in our more and more complex society? Do any of these values still resonate with us?"
But my favorite part of the interview was talking about how intimidated he was about coming up with a new Superman theme.
"I spent three months just procrastinating and not even getting a start on the thing, because I was so intimidated: 'Oh my God, I'm following in John Williams' footsteps.'"
Read the whole thing here. It's a great chat that shines a little light on this film, which for some reason I keep forgetting is coming out in a few short months. I'm hearing word inside the studio is that they're over the moon with how it's turning out, so that's a good sign.
