After declaring he was retiring from superhero films a while back, legendary composer Hans Zimmer is set to return to DC with next year’s Wonder Woman 1984. He had previously made Wonder Woman’s instantly-classic theme in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Coming straight from FilmMusicReporter, they report Zimmer has officially signed on to compose the score for Gal Gadot’s next outing as Wonder Woman. Although he had supposedly retired from these types of films, accepting to do Wonder Woman 1984 was likely not the hardest decision he’s made. He didn’t do the first Wonder Woman film, that was done by Rupert Gregson-Williams, but the theme he created was prominently present in that film.
From scoring the Dark Knight trilogy to films like The Lion King, Hans Zimmer is one of the best composers of our time. His mark has been especially felt in the superhero film space recently, and I’m glad he’s decided to return. All I have is Wonder Woman’s theme in my head when I think of this news, and that alone gets me beyond excited for what he’ll bring to the table.
Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters November 1, 2019.
