To anyone that loves movies, and particularly superhero movies, you know of Hans Zimmer, legendary composer and a man that helps create the powerful atmosphere and emotion we have felt of some of the worlds most famous movies. We here at Nerd Lowdown are huge fans of Hans and are going to see him in concert this year (we can’t wait). Sadly though, today is a dull day for any Hans Zimmer fans.
Zimmer recently spoke on an episode of BBC HardTalk where he discussed the latest film he done the score for, that being Batman Vs Superman, and he also announced his retirement from the superhero business. Zimmer will no longer be scoring any superhero movies.
Zimmer told HardTalk:
“I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years ago, so The Dark Knight Trilogy might be three movies to you, to me it was 11 years of my life….. Batman v Superman was very hard for me to do, to try to find new language.”
One can imagine that scoring a superhero movie can be quite stressful on a composer, especially doing a trilogy such as The Dark Knight Trilogy. So while we mourn the loss of Zimmer to superhero movies, we can still be thankful he hasn’t retired from scoring movies in general.
We would like to thank Hans Zimmer for his services in scoring superhero movies, below we have included some of his works from superhero movies.

Zimmer is an award-winning composer of over 150 films, including Batman v Superman, The Dark Knight trilogy, The Lion King the Pirates of the Caribbean series, The Thin Red Line, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Inception, and Interstellar.
