In our first episode of THE SOUNDCAST we discussed superhero film scores and we specifically brought up the question of, "If Mark Millar's vision of a Superman reboot trilogy were to happen, who should write the score for it?"
Well, just to update the rumor-mill on all this - EMPIRE has recently published a new interview with Millar where he discusses more details about what he'd like to do with his proposed trilogy. After reading the short article, I have to admit...it sounds awfully ambitious and you can count me among the interested! Superman sitting alone on the planet earth with the Sun about to supernova? Yes...I do think that might be a pretty powerful conclusion to a trilogy.
Of course, he doesn't mention anything about who would be the ideal composer and he doesn't even reveal what "big Hollywood action director" he's been talking with. Whoever that turns out to be could give us a clue as to what sort of score we might be looking at should all this move past the internet-hub-bub stage.
Oh - one quote I do find peculiar, "I understand what Bryan Singer was trying to do, to pay homage to Richard Donner’s original vision, but I think you should pay homage by doing something completely different.”
Anyway, you can read the full article here.
