Oscar-winning film composer, Hans Zimmer, has reportedly been roped in to score Wonder Woman 1984. After composing music for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman, Zimmer announced in 2016 that he was done with comic book movies.
But now, it seems the highly acclaimed composer has made up his mind to make a comeback to the DCEU with Wonder Woman 1984, reported Film Music Reporter. The news confirms that Rupert Gregson-Williams, Hans’s longtime collaborator, who scored 2017 released Wonder Woman, is not returning for the sequel.
Zimmer composing could mean good news for the project entirely. Moreover, it could also suggest that Wonder Woman 1984’s script is “amazing”.
In an earlier interview with Inverse, Zimmer spoke about how Ron Howard changed his mind about his retirement from composing comic book movies. Zimmer clarified that he would once again score a movie from the superhero genre but it would depend on the script.
“Ron Howard actually said something very smart to me. He said, “Don’t say you will never do a superhero movie again. Wait for somebody to turn up with an amazing script for a superhero movie.” And I suppose that’s what I’m saying: Can I please have the amazing script?”
It looks like the script meeting with Patty Jenkins and others went well enough to get Zimmers on board.
Notably, Wonder Woman 1984 won’t be the only superhero film to be graced by Zimmer. He’s also on board to score for Fox’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix as well. However, the project has continued to face delays and is still yet to release its first trailer.
Talking more about Wonder Woman 1984, the film is set in the 1980s and will see Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman facing an all-new foe, The Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). In the comic book storyline, Barbara Minerva aka Cheetah is a British anthropologist who gains powers of Cheetah after an expedition to an African jungle.
The story follows Diana Prince as she reunites with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). The movie also stars Pedro Pascal and Natasha Rothwell in undisclosed roles.
Patty Jenkins is directing Wonder Woman 1984 from a script which she has co-written along with Dave Callaham and Geoff Johns. Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jenkins, Stephen Jones, and Gadot are producing the project.
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to arrive in theaters on November 1, 2019.
