Hello, This is the place to discuss the latest news and thoughts regarding the music in the upcoming Superman Returns movie. John Ottman is doing the score. However, the main fanfare is going to be used for the credits and throughout the movie from what I understand. I have heard the music on the full trailer and some of it sounds like it is really very beautiful and epic. Also, the tracking of the JW fanfare seemed cheap to me but i liked that they are not shying away from it and I do expect that it will be rerecorded for synching with cues and to match sound quality so as far as the soundtrack goes I'm not worried. However, the action cues are gonna be what can break this I think. Sure, the underscore and fanfare seem good so far, but action music can't just be the fanfare...so I hope they choose to opt for a melodic rather than percussive style that is repetitive ala Baldelt/Zimmer. Not that I don't think their material isn't enjoyable (sometimes) but I think consistancy is the key. You don't want a neo-JW-esque score mixed with something that sounds like POTC or LOTR action cues IMHO. Well, that's my 2 cents. Please post when updates come your way and if you feel your opinion is worthy of your time to write it. Peace. Out. GK edit: Sorry, only forum modreators can make threads "Official". And I thought we already had a new Superman thread going about a month ago, but I'm not spotting it. I'll leave this open in the meantime.
