The Batman Composer Michael Giacchino on the Film’s Score

The Batman movie composer Michael Giacchino recently spoke with Collider about what fans can expect for the film’s score. Director Matt Reeves and Giacchino collaborated together on Cloverfield, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes.

“I felt total freedom to do whatever I want. Matt always agreed, this is our Batman, this is our vision. In the same way that I always loved, what I still do about Batman comics and graphic novels is that each of these artist, each of these authors they take their own crack at what they want this to be. It’s their version of Batman,” Giacchino told the outlet.

“I love it when I see a graphic novel of Batman in the 1800s,” he added. “To me that is cool. I love that. I’m not the kind of person that says Batman must always be this. It’s like no, why? It can be whatever the artist wants to be and it has over the years done that, many times over. I love the idea of taking something and just kind of doing our version of it.”

Additionally, Vital Thrills shared that Eiza González (Baby Driver, Hobbs & Shaw, Bloodshot) was up for the role of Catwoman in the film, saying she was camera-tested for the role that eventually went to Zoë Kravitz.

González talked about trying not to get her hopes up, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s impossible not to do that, especially when you get so far down the line. It’s part of why you’re so far down the line, because you’re living and dreaming the character. It is heartbreaking; it is always hard. You have to envision yourself in the role in order to see the role. You can’t have one foot in and one foot out. When I started my career, I was more like that, and I wouldn’t get that far. So now I do, and I just go through the heartbreak afterwards.”
