    This will work great if Zimmer channels that inspirational side the likes of Lion King and whatnot.

    Zimmer is good. He's even better when he's mixing some old scores and making them sound completely new, so there is a chance that he will reuse Williams themes without making it totally obvious. We will see, or rather hear.

    Superb choice. He, Michael Giacchino and Bear McCreary were my picks. Also interesting to see Nolan's influence over the project with Zimmer chosen over Snyder's go to composer Tyler Bates.

    Although it kind of makes his comments here from December 2010 pretty funny with him saying:

    John Williams, the greatest living composer — full stop. And that happens to be one of his greatest themes. So no. And I’m not thinking of rewriting Beethoven’s ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless task, you know? So that’s unequivocally a no.
    This other quote from about the same time is also interested:

    You are allowed to reinvent, but you have to try to be as good or at least as iconic and it has to resonate and it has to become a part of the zeitgeist. That’s the job. On ‘Gladiator’ I remember people always talking about ‘Spartacus’ and I kept telling them, ‘When you saw ‘Spartacus’ and how it affected it you, that’s how I want a modern audience to be affected by what we do now.’ So I think ultimately you’re supposed to reinvent.

    Someone must have given him a great pitch between now and then about how this is worth doing.

    I thought he had repeatedly said he wouldn't be doing it. I guess he changed his mind, which is good because if there's any composer who could produce a score worthy of Superman it would be him.

    I hope they dont use the classic theme...dont get me wrong I love it...but I dont think it fits the movie. They should do what they did with Batman Begins, start completely new, no danny elfman theme or those schumacher movie themes.

    I agree that they shouldn't use the classic theme...however, I could see a way to make it work.

    Think Casino Royale or the JJ Abrams Star Trek. In both films, they kept away from the classic theme...UNTIL the closing credits. It allowed about two hours or so of building their own worlds, building their own identities apart from the previous films and TV series...but at the very end, you hear the familiar music that reminds you, that while this is a new version of it, this is STILL James Bond, or this is Still Star Trek etc. Now that I think about it, what better feeling coming out of the theater, after witnessing the new origin and status quo for the movie Superman, to hear that classic theme, reminding you of the great adventures of the past, but reminding you that this is a new beginning of new adventures. If Zimmer were to incorporate the Williams theme. that would be the perfect place.

    Good post and agree. Perfect examples you used! Especially with Star Trek. I really wanted Giacchino for Man of Steel :\

    I'd like them to try something new as well, but how do you know that theme doesn't fit a movie that you haven't seen?
    Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
