It’s been almost ten years since the last Batman solo movie hit theaters. But in under two months, The Batman is ushering in a new era with Robert Pattinson in the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne. Director Matt Reeves is taking his own approach to Batman’s early years, and that includes a new take on the Dark Knight’s musical repertoire. Danny Elfman, Shirley Walker, Hans Zimmer, and James Newton Howard are among the composers who have previously given Gotham City its musical flavor. But now it’s time for composer Michael Giacchino to share his take on the franchise. Batman soundtrack.
Via Twitter, Reeves posted the first track from The Batman‘s score, and shared the memory of the first time he heard it.
My brilliant friend @m_giacchino wrote this theme before I ever shot a frame of @TheBatman. I can still remember listening to it in my car with #DylanClark before we went onto the stage to do #RobertPattinson‘s screen test. We both had chills.
