The highly-anticipated DC movie The Batman is getting closer day by day. Yesterday we have officially learned that the movie will be 2 hours and 55 minutes long, which makes it the third-longest superhero movie ever made, behind Avengers: Endgame (3 hours and 1 minute) and Zack Snyder’s Justice League (4 hours and 2 minutes).
The Batmania is increasing as the movie is closing in, and after several teasers, trailers, posters, information, and all the other marketing stuff, WaterTower Music now officially released the main music theme of the movie by composer Michael Giacchino. The main theme is almost seven minutes long, and you can check it out down below:
Many composers worked on the music themes for the Batman movies. Danny Elfman is known for the legendary theme from Tim Burton’s 1989 movie starring Michael Keaton, and the same theme was used in Batman Returns and the famous Batman: The Animated Series. Hans Zimmer was the composer of The Dark Knight trilogy, and James Newton Howard also worked with him on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, while The Dark Knight Rises’ music was all Zimmer. Zimmer also composed the music for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice with Junkie XL.
Michael Giacchino previously worked on popular movies like The Incredibles, Star Trek, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible III, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Incredibles 2, Zootopia, Cloverfield, Up, Coco, Jurassic World, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man MCU trilogy, Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes, etc. He will also compose the music for the upcoming movies Jurassic World: Dominion, and Thor: Love and Thunder. Shortly, the man has a lot of experience with big franchises.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman follows younger Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson) in his second year as Batman while he’s trying to fight corruption in Gotham City and other supervillains, particularly Riddler (Paul Dano). Zoë Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell also star.
The Batman is set to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. The movie will debut on HBOMax in mid-April.
