Thanks to The Audio Spotlight for highlighting this 25-minute video interview with Hans Zimmer on the ‘Man Of Steel’ score:
CNN has an interview up with composer Hans Zimmer, on his score for ‘Man of Steel’ which premieres today around the world:
The secrecy surrounding “Man of Steel,” due June 14, is pretty extraordinary, but composer Hans Zimmer was able to give CNN a glimpse of what to expect when we caught up with him this week regarding the score he did for “The Bible.”
Asked if the two projects had anything in common, since both involve a savior figure (Jesus, Kal-el) sent by his father to Earth, Zimmer laughed and said, “Yes. Yes is the answer. Once you see Superman, you’ll see how close you are with your question.”
“Both stories are passions,” Zimmer continued, “about a struggle to do the right thing. For Superman, it was a really simple question for me. What does it take to become a good man? To be good? And what does that mean in our more and more complex society? Do any of these values still resonate with us?”
