I have to admit that I am very partial to the score for Superman the Movie. That said, I also liked Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel score in some ways and in parts, but on the whole I felt it quite lacking and not up to the same standard of other films that he’s scored. I mean, just listen to those themes back to back and tell me John Williams original isn’t by far the superior, I dare you!
In any event, some great analysis and comparison by David Chen of the /Filmcast. Enjoy.
