One U-Turn Later, Hans Zimmer Latest Batman Alum To Join Man Of Steel

Hans Zimmer once made it totally clear that he wouldn't be scoring Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. He said: John Williams, the greatest living composer – full stop.

Okay, So There Is No Dark Knight Rises Remix – As You Were

Just to tidy up a loose end, here's an update on where we stand with the foggy Bane audio in the IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight Rises: exactly where we were when we first started. Despite original reports that the audio for the scene had already been remixed and reissued, it seems that this […]
