The long wait for Henry Cavill’s Superman on the big screen has finally come to an end with the release of Black Adam being only days away. Ever since the release of his groundbreaking movie Man Of Steel, Henry Cavill has been the fan-favorite caped hero. Whenever he appears on screen, everyone is ought to cheer.

Zack Snyder’s introduction of Cavill as the hero had come with a long wish of using John Williams’ original Superman theme for his version as well but, Warner Bros. Discovery had denied this request, and with it; Hans Zimmer’s theme came to life, becoming iconic to Henry Cavill and his reign as the symbol of hope for Metropolis.

The Attempt To Bring Back The Classics For Henry Cavill’s Era

While the making of Man Of Steel Zack Snyder tried his best so that WBD would give him permission to use John Williams‘ Superman theme which was not only a classic but, would also mark an entirely new face for the hero, however, Superman himself would still be the same, the one who saves people when they think they can’t be saved. His being a fan of Williams was an added motivation for the director to go one step further to make something like that happen.

Much to his dismay, however, Warner Bros. Discovery did not think the same. Hans Zimmer was then hired as the composer and music producer for the movie and with this, Henry Cavill‘s Superman had his theme which went on for multiple movies, Zack Snyder’s Justice League being the last place it was used.

The character’s appearance in Black Adam changes everything as, during his cameo in the movie, it was not Hans Zimmer’s theme that was playing, but in fact, John Williams’.

Warner Bros. Discovery Might Be Making A Statement Against Zack Snyder With Bringing Back Henry Cavill With Another Theme

WBD has been very resistant to the return of Zack Snyder in the DCEU and by the looks of it, with even his movie’s theme now being discarded, is probably their way of saying goodbye to the director for good. The message may be loud and clear to the fans as well but, it does not seem as though they would settle with it.

The idea of having Henry Cavill’s Superman appearing without his theme may seem absurd to many but, the DCEU has done it. WBD has now not only gone against what they had said earlier and given what Snyder had been asking for since the very beginning. Zimmer’s theme managed to make its place in multiple hearts and the fans want it back.

Wanting to see Superman with his theme after such a long time is a fair thing to ask according to the fans, but for WBD, John Williams’ theme is likely to be the future of Superman instead of Hans Zimmer’s.

Black Adam will be available to watch in your nearby theatres from 21st October 2022.
