Hans Zimmer has admitted that the prospect of composing the score for the new Batman vs. Superman movie for director Zack Snyder has been giving him problems.
The movie, which is due to star Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, will be a loose sequel to this year's Man Of Steel, which Zimmer also scored. Zimmer is currently in talks to take on the score for the new movie as well.
Speaking to Collider, Zimmer admitted that he was having trouble separating the new film from his existing music from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy: "It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now. Quite honestly, I’ve got to sit down with Zack [Snyder, director] and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well."
He continued: "Of course I can see myself doing it, first of all because I love working with Zack. I think you can tell from that score [for Man Of Steel] we had a lot of fun, and I think it was inventive. Once I got over the whole ‘Oh my God I’m not as good as John Williams’ thing…"
The news comes after Zimmer was honoured by the Classic BRIT Awards with both the Composer of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to Music awards at the 2013 ceremony two weeks ago.
