After rumors began swirling that Hans Zimmer would score the next ‘Superman’ movie for director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan, the famous composer quickly dismissed the story, is reporting. Zimmer spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the rumors, saying he hasn’t even thought about working on the film, and he is the victim of an out-of-context vote.

Zimmer added that he “wouldn’t even know how to go and give voice” to the film. He just thinks the reports were a result of his connections to Nolan. Zimmer has composed several of Nolan’s works, including his Academy Award-winning film ‘The Dark Knight’ and last summer’s hit ‘Inception.’ The composer added that he hasn’t even met Snyder.

Zimmer also said he’s more than happy to stick to composing the ‘Batman’ movies. He added that he wouldn’t know how to tackle the iconic ‘Superman’ theme music by John Williams from the Richard Donner-directed films. Zimmer further went on to say that Williams is the greatest living composer, and “that happens to be one of his greatest themes.”
