Hans Zimmer Done with Doing Superhero Scores

He's composed the score for Christopher Nolan's Batman, for Zack Snyder's Superman, for Nicolas Cage's Weather Man, but it seems that Hans Zimmer won't be doing any more superhero movies after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Speaking to BBC HARDtalk, the Oscar-winning composer explained his exhaustion with the genre, saying it was getting harder and harder for him to musically "find new language" within it.

"I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years ago, so The Dark Knight Trilogy might be three movies to you--to me it was 11 years of my life. Then, I did [Man of Steel], then I did [Batman v Superman]. I might as well say it: I have officially retired from the superhero business."

As is customary for someone retiring the Warner Bros. superhero business, Zimmer will be given a dingy watch overstuffed with not quite interlocking gears.
