Always a fan of films scores, I have appreciated the talents of both Danny Elfman, love his dark marches, and Hans Zimmer, a master of strings. It just so happens that it was Hans Zimmer who replaced Elfman for Batman Begins and he's now looking to change things up with The Dark Knight.

Hans Zimmer to Reinvent the Batman Theme

Expect strings, lots of strings. Okay, okay, maybe not, but Hans Zimmer is looking to make the Batman theme fit into his own style. The good people at SuperHeroHype got some new details on what direction Zimmer is heading.

The biggest news from Mr. Zimmer, who told us that he's "playing around" and "getting some ideas" is the fact that he's crafting a new Batman theme for the second movie in the relaunched franchise. "It's going to evolve," He told us. "There is a big Batman theme which I was playing with for the last one, but I always felt the character hadn't earned it yet, so I just want to go and play around, and I now want to go and complete that theme, so that's part of the idea. I felt I had a good start, and now it would be really nice to develop that world a little further."

The Dark Knight opens to theatres on July 18th, 2008.
