Hans Zimmer, the legendary composer behind Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel and many others also composed the music for Rush, which stars Chris Hemsworth and made its debut last night in London.

While on the Red Carpet, Zimmer was asked about doing the music score for the new Batman/Superman movie set to star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.

Zimmer mentions that he has to think about it, but also mentions Ben Affleck is right for Batman and what they need.

This is really complicated for me. Because we all went, 'Okay, we're done with Batman,' and now it's sort of getting smuggled back in. I'll have to think about that one. I might give you a new Batman if I do it.

I actually think it's a really good choice, because #1 he's a great filmmaker. He's smart. He wouldn't have taken it if he had set himself up for a fall. And, you know, he's a bit older these days and that's what we need, and he's got a good chin.

Previously, Zimmer hinted he was doing the music score for more Zack Snyder DC movies as he had a conversation with Snyder about the direction of the films and remarked, "Here we go again."

Christopher Nolan brought Hans Zimmer on board Interstellar as well.

The sequel to "Man of Steel" goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015 release also starring Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
