Michael Giacchino, who is the composer of Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman movie, releases a snippet of the new theme to celebrate Batman Day.
The Batman composer Michael Giacchino has revealed the theme for the upcoming DC movie. Matt Reeves is set to direct the solo Batman film, which will star Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight. The Batman won’t be another origin story, yet will still focus on the early years of Bruce Wayne’s stint as the masked vigilante. Along with Pattinson, the movie will star Paul Dano as the Riddler, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman.
A musical score can often be one of the most underrated aspects of a film, but the Batman movies have always managed to get incredibly talented musicians to work on the DC films. 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns saw Tim Burton reunite with frequent collaborator Danny Elfman. Burton’s first Batman even featured Prince on the soundtrack. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy chose Hans Zimmer to compose the score for all three movies, who later returned for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with director Zack Snyder. The Batman will be composed by Giacchino, who is also an Academy Award Winner and one of the most well-known composers of this generation.
To celebrate Batman Day, Giacchino revealed a snippet of Batman’s new theme for Reeves film. The composer mentioned DC FanDome in his tweet, which indicates the full song could be released at the event this October. Giacchino’s original post can be seen below:
With Batman being one of Warner Bros.’ most valuable pieces of IP, it’s no surprise that the film is going with someone as well known as Giacchino to craft the score. Giacchino expressed interest in composing the score for The Batman as early as 2017, and he was officially set as the composer two years later. The musician is one of the most sought-after composers in the business, with Giacchino also writing the music for big blockbusters like Jurassic World: Dominion and Spider-Man: No Way Home. When it came to scoring The Batman, Reeves personally asked Giacchino by getting down on one knee at an event at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
As mentioned above, the full song could be released at DC FanDome. The event on October 16 will likely feature new looks at films like Black Adam, The Flash, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. However, with The Batman being the next DC film on Warner Bros.’ release calendar, the movie will likely be spotlighted heavily. Reeves celebrated Batman Day by sharing an image of Batman wielding a grappling hook, stating that more would be revealed at DC FanDome. A new trailer and poster for The Batman could possibly be unveiled at the event, but a few songs of the score could also keep anticipation high for the movie without giving too much of the story away.
