Man of Steel and The Dark Knight composer Hans Zimmer recently sat down with Collider to chat about his thoughts on Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel. Check out the full interview above.

Regarding the difference between Christopher Nolan's vision of Batman and the direction Batman vs. Superman will go, Zimmer had this to say:

“It’s creating a bit of a problem in my head right now. Quite honestly, I’ve gotta sit down with Zack and have a chat with him about what he’s trying to do because what I don’t want to do is go back to that well. It’s a different Batman; Christian Bale and what I did with Chris, that needs to have its autonomous life. I don’t want to go and now appropriate that and put that into the other Batman.”

Zimmer also defends the decision to make Ben Affleck the new Batman:

“He’ll be a really good Batman. It’s really quite simple, the man isn’t a fool and he’s not gonna set himself up for a fall. He’s a great filmmaker in his own right, he really is… I think he’s become a much more astute actor and I think he’ll make a great Batman, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing. So do I think it’s a good idea? Yes, I think it’s a good idea. I think he’s great casting.”
