Superman and His Music - A Twitter Discussion

With the imminent return of Superman, via Zach Snyder's upcoming MAN OF STEEL, it's a sure bet JOHN WILLIAMS' original themes and scores for late-seventies, feature-film, iteration of Superman will be coming up in many forums and on countless social media platforms.  Add to this JOHN OTTMAN's exciting, recently released score for JACK THE GIANT SLAYER and his past connection to the Superman franchise (SUPERMAN RETURNS) and you get the following twitter conversation between Erik Woods (Cinematic Sound Radio), Christopher Coleman (Tracksounds), Dane Walker (Composer), Mark A. and Doug Adams (Author).
