[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7110:]]With the release of the Man of Steel trailer #3 came our first listen to the Superman Hans Zimmer score.

We can actually listen to more of it below as someone has gone and ripped the music score from the trailer and put it together.

Hans Zimmer recently spoke to Variety offering what his inspiration was for the soundtrack and mentiong the three Batman films he worked on as well.

“If Batman is the way the world sees America, Superman is the way America sees itself,” Zimmer says. The score, he thought, should “celebrate everything that is good about America,” and he began to focus on the heartland where Clark Kent grew up, searching for a sound palette that might be the basis for a fresh approach.

He came up with eight pedal-steel guitar players and a 12-person drum circle. “I wanted to create a tone that wasn’t necessarily what you expected,” says Zimmer in what may be the understatement of the year. “I was lacking notes, but I wasn’t lacking ideas about the sonic landscape.”

Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
