A few weeks ago we got the news that the master of soundtracks is returning to score the music for a superhero movie. Now, many people were confused about why he did another film, after saying he would quit. Hans Zimmer sat down with Collider and explained that he would be taking Rupert Gregson-Williams (the person behind the first Wonder Woman movie soundtrack) place as the composer of the film.
“It was odd to say ‘yes’ to because my friend, Rupert, I had worked really hard at getting Rupert the job on the first one. But remember the motif, the Wonder Woman theme is mine, actually. I wrote that damn thing. And we had done it live, and it became more and more interesting. I just thought it was important to sort of finish it. And Patty [Jenkins] phoned me, and she had a really interesting idea as well. Again, the story she is going to tell, or she is probably right now on a set telling, it’s a story you want to be a part of.” – Hans Zimmer to Collider
It makes total sense if you ask me, the iconic Wonder Woman theme in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice was, in fact, the score that Hans Zimmer composed. Rupert Gregson-Williams did reuse it for the first Wonder Woman movie. It only makes more sense for him to continue it one last time with the Wonder Woman 1984 movie.
What do you think about Hans Zimmer taking his rightful place to write the score for Wonder Woman 1984? Let us know in the comments below.
Wonder Woman 1984 will hit theaters on November 1, 2019.
