DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY Composer Hans Zimmer To Create Score For AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
CinemaBlend has confirmation from Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb that composer Hans Zimmer will be scoring the film. Sony is obviously going above and beyond securing talent for the sequel. Zimmer is best known for composing scores for films such as Pirates of The Caribbean, along with upcoming films Interstellar and perhaps Batman Vs Superman. Having Zimmer on board is yet another step in the right direction for the Marvel films. Spidey could finally have his own reworked film theme, along with giving each new character their own identity through sound (ala Joker, Bane and Selina Kyle). It's inspired choice on the part of Sony which is similar to Marvel's recent hiring of Tyler Bates (Watchmen) to score Guardians of The Galaxy. The Marvel scores have never really had an impact on me, so here's to that changing in 2014. The DC movies have oddly had the best scores with Watchmen, 300 and The Dark Knight Trilogy being the highlights. It's about time Marvel upped their game in this arena.
