Legendary movie composer John Williams has admitted that seeing the new Superman film, Man Of Steel, will be difficult for him to watch.

John Williams has admitted that it will be a difficult experience to watch the new Superman film, Man Of Steel, because of his memories of and involvement with the original.

"It's going to be hard for me not to let go of the music, but to let go of the idea of Superman being Chris [Christopher Reeve]," he said. Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill in the role of Superman himself, while Hans Zimmer has composed the soundtrack.

A portion of the new Zimmer soundtrack was made available to hear online earlier this month.

He continued: "I haven't seen it, but I'm sure it will be wonderful. I don't know if they've used any of the original music or not. It's a Warner Bros. film, in which case, they certainly have the right to do so."

Talking to Zap2it, Williams also confirmed that he is officially in talks with JJ Abrams, director of the forthcoming Star Wars sequels: "We've certainly talked about that, and I'm happy and willing to do it," he commented.

The comments come after both parties had separately confirmed their intention to work together on the new movies.
