Long-time DC cinematic composer Hans Zimmer has signed on to be a composer for Patty Jenkin’ latest project, Wonder Woman 1984.
In 2016, Zimmer stated that he was retiring from scoring comic book movies. Since his supposed retirement Zimmer has teased that he would potentially come out of retirement if someone had a “really great idea” and it would appear that Wonder Woman 1984 is that idea.
Hans-Zimmer.com reported that the German composer was signed on for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, the eighth installment to Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC Extended Universe. Zimmer is no stranger to putting a sound to Wonder Woman after collaborating with Tom Holkenborg to write the charcter’s iconic theme that appeared in 2016’s Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice.
Wonder Woman 1984 is not the only superhero film Zimmer is set to compose. Earlier this year it was announced that he would be scoring Simon Kinberg’s X-Men Dark Phoenix from 20th Century Fox.
