Speaking with ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype!, composer Hans Zimmer talked about his score for The Simpsons Movie and about the score to the upcoming Batman Begins followup The Dark Knight.
One of the biggest bits of news announced was that Zimmer is “playing around” and “getting some ideas” as he works to craft a new Batman theme for the second movie, telling the site “It’s going to evolve. There is a big Batman theme which I was playing with for the last one, but I always felt the character hadn’t earned it yet, so I just want to go and play around, and I now want to go and complete that theme, so that’s part of the idea. I felt I had a good start, and now it would be really nice to develop that world a little further.”
The Dark Knight hits theaters on July 18, 2008.
