Man of Steel - Defender of Middle Earth

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, whether in front of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES or not, the Christopher Nolan produced, Zach Snyder directed, new, Superman-tale, THE MAN OF STEEL, has a teaser trailer. The visuals are compelling enough (I suppose), but, personally, I'm not looking forward to any shaky-cam-version of Superman. Aside from that, I don't yet find anything too offensive in the trail...oh wait.

 Does that music sound a bit familiar? Oh it most certainly should...but it was originally written for another earth...Middle Earth. That unforgettable solo soprano is none other than Howard Shore's "Lament for Gandalf" (THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING).

For most who view this trailer, it will be inconsequential, but some of you soundtrack-geniuses out there might find it a tad distracting.  Perhaps we can hold out hope for Princess Leia's theme in the full trailer down the road.

Does this seem like an odd pairing to you?  Does it distract or bother you?
