The Hollywood Reporter had a chance to talk to composer Hans Zimmer about his involvement in the upcoming Superman adaptation directed by Zack Snyder, which was reported last week by NBC San Diego as reported here. The news spread last week after Zimmer did some interviews at the DVD/Blu-Ray release party for Incpetion, which according to the composer had been taken out of context. Zimmer says that at this point he has not talked with Superman‘s director Zack Snyder and is not involved in any way in the new adaptation of the comic book franchise. This, of course, doesn’t mean that he won’t be asked to score the movie, especially given his relationship with producer Christopher Nolan, but he refers to the assignment of scoring the movie and following the footsteps of John Williams as “a thankless task”, implying some hesitation in taking on scoring duties on the movie.

    I read this as well and at the ceremony on the 8th they read that he will be composing the score for Superman. I guess we have to wait and see.
