Director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan have tapped The Dark Knight Rises composer Hans Zimmer to score Warner Bros. Superman reboot Man of Steel, reports THR. Zimmer worked on all three films in Nolan’s Batman trilogy and this will be his fifth collaboration.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue.
Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.
Currently in post-production, Man of Steel is slated for release on June 14, 2013.
