Get ready to return to Gotham City. Listen to Michael Giacchino‘s dark and intense new theme from Matt Reeves’ The Batman
Michael Giacchino is undoubtedly the go-to guy when it comes to comic book movie scores. Over the last few years, the composer has been on hand to comprise scores for Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie and all three Spider-Man adventures. So when Matt Reeves took the reins of The Batman at DC, Giacchino was the first and only choice to create the new sound of Gotham City.
After giving us a sample of his new theme during Robert Pattinson’s Batsuit reveal trailer, Warner’s Watertower Music has shared the first track from his upcoming soundtrack. And boy, is it a doozy. The track features Giacchino’s “Main Theme” which has been featured in almost every trailer to date. But this time the gloves are off and the theme is revealed in all its glory. Check it out below:
Once again, Giacchino appears to be knocking this score out of the park. Although it may not be what many fans were expecting, it does borrow some of the finer elements of Shirley Walker’s iconic themes from Batman: The Animated Series. It is dark, gritty, intense, and powerful and will make the adventures in Gotham all the more atmospheric. And being fans of that masterpiece, we are absolutely sold on Giacchino’s vision. And we hope you are too.
Written and directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman is set to star Robert Pattinson in the title role, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, and Paul Dano as Edward Nashton.
The Batman will release in UK cinemas on March 4, 2022.
