DCEU’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made a lot of fans raise their eyebrows when it concluded with the death of Superman at the hands of Doomsday. While it’s obvious that the Man of Steel will rise from his grave in Justice League, the ending of the movie was an unexpected move by DCEU. Or was it?
It’s certain that we all fell in love with Hans Zimmer’s Wonder Woman music in Batman v Superman. But what if we told you that the composer had come unprepared, having not read the script for the movie?
It looks like that was the scenario. In 2014, Hans Zimmer revealed his most embarrassing moment via “Ask Me Anthing” on reddit.
The composer wrote, “The most embarrassing moment of my professional life was when I was in a script meeting and I hadn’t read the script and I kept talking about how the two heroes are going to ride off into the sunset and describing the glorious music in great scene at the end and how beautiful it was going to be. Then the producer said ‘you haven’t read the script have you?’ I said ‘yes I have.’ He then said ‘One of the heroes dies.'”
It was likely that Zimmer was talking about Batman v Superman. But surprisingly, it looks like no fan or journalist was able to spot the clue in his answer during that time.
Unfortunately, we can’t expect more leaks from the composer, as earlier in March, Zimmer confirmed that he won’t score superhero movies anymore. Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg) will return to score for the upcoming Justice League movie.
