Composer Hans Zimmer is no stranger to superhero films, having scored both Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel." Now that the "Man of Steel" sequel is set to feature both Superman and Batman, how does Zimmer feel about the possibility of making music for both heroes in one movie?
Red Carpet News TV caught up with the composer at the world premiere of Ron Howard's "Rush" in London and asked him just that.
"This is really complicated for me because we all went, 'Okay, we're done with Batman,' and now it's sort of getting smuggled back in," Zimmer told the site. "I have to have a think about that one. I might give you a new Batman if I do it."
It just so happens that Zimmer is getting a new Batman in Ben Affleck, and when asked about the choice to fill the Caped Crusader's shoes, the composer had only positive things to say about Batfleck.
"I actually think it's a really good choice," Zimmer said, "because number one, he's a great filmmaker; he's smart, he wouldn't have taken it if he had set himself up for a fall."
Zimmer added that Affleck's older age plays into the image of the character that Snyder's aiming to portray in the Superman sequel. Plus, according to the composer, Affleck has one other important attribute working in his favor.
"He's got a good chin," Zimmer said.
