Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman sequel has reportedly brought composer Hans Zimmer out of his self-imposed retirement from scoring superhero films.
According to Hans-Zimmer.com the award-winning composer is coming back to the DC Extended Universe to score Wonder Woman 1984, having previously worked on Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Rupert Gregson-Williams (Hacksaw Ridge) handled the score for the first Wonder Woman film, giving his own take on Zimmer’s theme for the Amazonian Princess which was introduced in Batman V Superman.
Listen to each below:
It’s not clear why Gregson-Williams isn’t returning to score the sequel, he is in the midst of scoring James Wan’s Aquaman, perhaps he wants to try his hand at something that’s not superhero related.
Zimmer is a highly sought after composer, Warner Bros. bringing him back after his work on previous DCEU films has fans buzzing with joy.
The first Wonder Woman film was a box office smash, grossing $412 million in the US and $409 million internationally. It became the highest grossing superhero origins movie, after taking the title from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, which held the record for fifteen years.
Patty Jenkins penned the script with Geoff Johns and Expendables screenwriter David Callaham.
