Man of Steel - Hans Zimmer Musical Score

Man Of Steel ~ S stands for Hope | A Constantly Racing Mind
Today, Composer Hans Zimmer, released a sample of the music that will be featured in the upcoming Zack Snyder film, "Man of Steel."  Zimmer, whose credits include some of the most beautiful and inspiring film scores of this century, include "Black Hawk Down," "The Last Samurai," "King Arthur," "Gladiator," "Inception," and the score for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.  With over 150 films scores to his credit, Hans Zimmer has risen to the status of the likes of John Williams, or James Horner.  While listening to this sampler, I couldn't help notice the drums and heavy percussion that reminded me of Bear McCreary's music for "Battlestar Galactica."

John Williams composed the music for the 1978's "Superman." The theme at the time was bright, bold and majestic. Whereas Zimmer's score is darker, urgent, and yet majestic in tis own way. Presented here, for you listening pleasure, both Han Zimmer's "Man of Steel," and John Williams's classic from 1978.
