I may be a little biased…Supes has been and always will be my fave…but I was revisiting the score to Man of Steel the other day and thought, “This very well may be the best DC score ever…”
There will always be an epicness and soft spot in my heart for the ‘78 John Williams Superman theme, and the thunderous roll of Elfman’s ‘89 Batman theme always takes me back to being a kid, imagining racing in the batmobile…but Zimmer just hits so many emotions with his MoS score that makes the whole soundtrack (opposed to one or two standout pieces) a beautiful work of art in my opinion.
Through music he manages to capture a feel for “space” and alien origins, the softer side of the boy from Kansas and the triumphant power of the Man of Steel. There’s just a wonderful range of emotions I feel listening to that score from start to finish.
Like I said, perhaps a little biased here but…truly masterful composing in my opinion. Thoughts? Anyone else feel the same way?
Cheers, fellow DC fans!
