The Batman Composer Is Michael Giacchino!

-

We already learned this week that Zoë Kravitz will play Catwoman and that Paul Dano will play The Riddler, and now comes the news that The Batman composer will be none other than Michael Giacchino!

Composers Giacchino and David Arnold held a Settling the Score event at London’s Royal Albert Hall where The Batman director Matt Reeves made a surprise appearance and asked Giacchino to score the film. You can watch the mock proposal using the tweet below (via The Hollywood Reporter).


Reeves and Giacchino have worked together on multiple films, beginning with Cloverfield in 2008. They also worked together on Let Me InDawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes. As far as superhero films, Giacchino has previously scored both Incredibles films, Doctor StrangeSpider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From HomeThe Batman composer has another comic book movie lined up already as well – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Zoë Kravitz and Paul Dano joined a cast that includes Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon. Written and directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman is coming to theaters on June 25, 2021. The Warner Bros. Pictures comic book adaptation is expected to start filming in either late 2019 or early 2020. Reeves will also produce The Batman with his Planet of the Apes collaborator Dylan Clark.


Matt Reeves talked about the film earlier. “It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” he said. “It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

The film won’t be an adaptation of Batman: Year One, however. “We’re not doing any particular [comic],” Reeves added. “Year One is one of the many comic books that I love. We are definitely not doing Year One. It’s just exciting to be focused very specifically on a tale that is defining for him and very personal to him. Obviously we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that. We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman.”
