Today marks the release of Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice score, and the entire album is now streaming for free on Spotify.
Naturally Zimmer reprises his incredible Man of Steel score here, while Junkie XL handles the Batman stuff. As Zimmer did the scores for the Nolan trilogy, you can’t blame him for not wanting to revisit the Dark Knight a fourth time and try to top himself. At first listen the Batman themes aren’t quite as memorable as Zimmer’s Superman motifs, but then again we had three years to fall in love with that Man of Steel score. After a couple times through the soundtrack, Junkie XL has crafted a very strong theme for Batman that we’re sure to hear throughout the DC Extended Universe.
