Hans Zimmer To Score ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

Hans Zimmer is apparently returning to superhero movies, as he will be scoring the upcoming Marvel film by Fox, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Zimmer, who composed films like The Dark Knight and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, had previously said he would be “retiring” from scoring superhero movies after DC‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.

The actor who portrays Quicksilver in the X-Men saga, Evan Peters, recently revealed the Zimmer news, as well as spoke about his experience of working with Simon Kinberg, the director of the film:

“[The set] was actually very tame. Simon directed this one, and came in very prepared, very professional. It was a different energy on set and everything got done like clockwork. It was very seamless. Everybody was a little bit more level-headed, so it was a very pleasurable, light experience. I think the film is gonna be incredible. Hans Zimmer’s scoring it—I don’t know if I was supposed to say that or not. Simon has surrounded himself with incredible people, and Simon knows this world better than anybody, so it was just cool to see him—he’s so happy and in his element in that world, and also being able to direct and guide everybody in this way. I was very happy for him and I think it’s gonna be great.”

This is very surprising to hear given that Zimmer commented on his future projects back in March of 2016 and said:

“I have officially retired from the superhero business,”

That retirement was apparently just a break from the genre.

Mystique, Beast, Storm, Nightcrawler and the rest of the X-Men spring into action when a malevolent, power-hungry force threatens to overtake Jean Grey’s mind.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix hits theaters on November 2, 2018.
