Legendary composer Hans Zimmer has seemingly called time on his ventures in the superhero genre. With notable works like The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel and the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zimmer told BBC World News that he has “officially retired from the superhero business”.
The composer went on to say ““I did Batman Begins with [Christopher Nolan] 12 years ago, so The Dark Knight Trilogy might be three movies to you, to me it was 11 years of my life. Then I did Superman, then I did this one. This one was very hard for me to do, to try to find new language”. It’s probably unsurprising that Zimmer feels this way, as bringing in Junkie XL to work on the Batman portion of the film indicates that maybe the well has run dry for the writer. However it will be interesting to see whether he can be tempted out of retirement by Zack Snyder for Justice League Part 1, or ever both.
