An exclusive report brought in by Superhero Hype! has earned statement from composer Hans Zimmer saying he is working on a new Batman theme for the highly-anticipated project, which will be the second installment in the revitalized superhero franchise.
"There is a big Batman theme which I was playing with for the last one", Zimmer told the site, "but I always felt the character hadn't earned it yet, so I just want to go and play around, and I now want to go and complete that theme, so that's part of the idea. I felt I had a good start, and now it would be really nice to develop that world a little further."
