Hans Zimmer is still unsure about scoring Batman Vs. Superman as the composer lets it be known that creating new music for the Dark Knight presents quite the conundrum.

Speaking with The Collider, Zimmer offers that he would like to, but hasn't decided as of yet.

It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now.  Quite honestly, I’ve gotta sit down with Zack and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well.  It’s a different Batman; Christian Bale and what I did with Chris, that needs to have its autonomous life.  I don’t want to go and now appropriate that and put that into the other Batman.”

Of course I can see myself doing it, first of all because I love working with Zack.  I think you can tell from that score we had a lot of fun, and I think it was inventive.  Once I got over the whole ‘Oh my God I’m not as good as John Williams’ thing which, I’m different!  And it’s different times.

Zimmer is also asked when he first heard about Batman being in the sequel, as he seemed all up for it back in June, but now not so much. Zimmer doesn't answer that question, but offers Affleck will be a good Batman.

He’ll be a really good Batman.  It’s really quite simple, the man isn’t a fool and he’s not gonna set himself up for a fall.  He’s a great filmmaker in his own right, he really is… I think he’s become a much more astute actor and I think he’ll make a great Batman, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing.  So do I think it’s a good idea?  Yes, I think it’s a good idea.  I think he’s great casting. 

Check out Hans Zimmer talking Batman Vs. Superman in the video below as well as his thoughts on the reaction to the announcement of the casting of Ben Affleck.

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.
