Batman News: Hans Zimmer Picks His Favourite Batman
Is Christian Bale a better Batman than Ben Affleck?
It is a question that many have asked ever since the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Both have their merits, but Ben just edges it for me.
Hans Zimmer, though, has gone the other way. Having scored the music for both The Dark Knight trilogy and Batman v Superman, he has been up close and personal with each interpretation of the caped crusader.
In an article with Inverse Entertainment, the 59-year-old German composer said:
“For me, the Christian Bale character was always completely unresolved. The Ben character is more middle-aged and he seems to be grumpy as hell, but I didn’t feel the pain that I felt in Christian’s performance.”
That’s not to say he didn’t like Affleck’s tale. He states that he spent month’s perfecting the tone for Dawn Of Justice. You don’t put that much effort in for no reason.
But what do you think of Hans Zimmer and his choice? Who was the better Batman? Just remember, there is no wrong answer (unless you choose George Clooney).
