According to SuperHeroHype, Hans Zimmer has been tapped to score Zack Snyder’s “Superman” film, rumored to be titled “The Man of Steel”. The same article mentions that while Christopher Nolan is still attached to the project as a producer, his involvement in the production will be minimal once the script is approved. Instead, Nolan will be working on the final installment of his Batman Trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. While the notoriously-tight-lipped Nolan has revealed little about the much-anticipated film, he recently denied the rumor that Heath Ledger’s Joker would be returning through unused footage from The Dark Knight (2008). Little else has been released about the film so far other than that Tom Hardy has been cast in an unspecified role and that they are currently casting for two female characters, a villain and a love interest.
UPDATE: SuperHeroHype is now reporting that Hans Zimmer will NOT be scoring the Superman film.
The pilot for the new animated superhero series “Young Jusice” premiered last week. The show is a loose adaptation of the comic book series of the same name, featuring young heroes Robin, Kid Flash, Superboy, Artemis, and Aqualad. I found the pilot to be a lot fun and thought that it distanced itself from the similarly themed “Teen Titans” show quite nicely. The show also seems to be handling the interaction between the older and younger generations of heroes really well, and several of the older heroes are set up to become recurring characters. Stay tuned for more about the show when it officially begins in January!
