Look, shoot me down in flames if I've got this wrong, but is it actually official that the Nirvana song mashed with the new MG theme? Even if it's just for a trailer? It's just that as a commentator says, the Elfman theme is quoted at 2:48 - 2:51. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHHQm4MeoV0

If it's just a fan mashup fair enough. I'll get me coat..

Otherwise it's pretty awesome.

  • Giacchino: You know, it’s interesting, because there’s two camps in this thing. There are the people that are like, “Oh, there’s a Batman movie. You better use the Danny Elfman theme or the Hans Zimmer theme,” or who knows what theme. It could be anything, and they refuse to let go of what was. What I love about comic books growing up is that you would see all different versions of Batman. There would be this series, and then there would be a totally different series where he’s almost a different person in a way. You would get everyone’s interpretation of what they thought Batman was, we do it with Shakespeare all the time. Everyone puts on their own version of Shakespeare. In terms of taking an existing character and reinventing it in some way, that’s the great gift of all of this is we get to see different versions of it. For me, it’s more about what is right for our Batman? What are we doing for our Batman? This is our Batman. I’m not concerned about anything that came before. I’m not thinking about that at all. I loved all of it. I was certainly there in the theaters watching it, and I loved Batman since I was a kid, but I’m excited to do our version of it, and what we think it should be. That’s how I approach every time I do one of these movies that is tied to something from the past. It’s about the excitement of “Alright, this is our version, so now we get a chance to do what we think would be cool to do with this character.” So that’s always the approach I take.

    This is the strongest case for the public domain I've ever heard.

    You know what pairing I would have loved to tackle The Dark Knight graphic novel? David Cronenberg and Howard Shore. I think I’m their heyday they would have come Out with something really creepy and psychological. And for casting about Clint Eastwood circa 1990? Would have been cool. Or for a really twisted casting call, Michael Ironside.

    Early 90s Ironside would have been terrific for a Cronenberg-directed The Dark Knight Returns, especially as the two had collaborated previously. If you haven't already seen it, the adaptation in the New Batman Adventures episode "Legends of the Dark Knight" does feature Ironside as the voice of Batman.

    Thanks for the info! I will check it out. Ironside has the best voice for Batman without any processing or altering of his voice

  • It's Darth Vaders theme! (AKA: The Imperial March)

    And he pulls a Rogue One at 1:39...



  • I am vengeance. I am the night. I am your father!

    It does feel nice to be excited about a Batman movie again these days. Love this director, love this cast, and this movie looks sharp.

    Giacchino does some of his best work with Matt Reeves so the score is most certainly anticipated. If we wanna endlessly compare Giacchino's new theme to John Williams' "Imperial March" leitmotif we might as well admit to ourselves now that Williams was already lifting heavily from Frederic Chopin's "Funeral March" piece. The discussion pieces of "this sounds like this other thing" always seem rote when we fail to mention where it all began.

    So, yes, Michael Giacchino's new Batman theme does sound like Chopin's "Funeral March." But it sounds great using that influence, and seems to work well with the characterization of the Dark Knight he will see in this new film.

    It honestly feels to me like Giacchino sat there thinking how he really wanted to knock this theme out of the park, and that because of this desire, he decided to make the theme simply a variation of a known hit, The Imperial March. But for all we know, the director may have asked him to do exactly that. So, I guess it is what it is.

    Please. Chopin got that from Bang-a-Gong, the first primordial human to kill a dinosaur to his own beat.

    Was it a T. Rex?

    I as well am looking forward to hearing all of Giacchino's score.

    I'm more cautious about the movie itself. The trailer displays an impressively textured atmosphere - I like the shot of a bad guy trapped in his turned-over car in the pouring rain while "The Batman" slowly advances on him from his upside down perspective - but I also lost count of the many cliches in both situation and dialogue that flew by. I'll probably be more excited by March.

    I'm glad someone caught my historical inaccuracy!!

    I think the more distracting part about that melody is that it is too similar to the opening of Zimmer's "Beautiful Lie."

    Unless it is intentional, it gives off a familiarity that shouldn't be there.

    I feel like the "theme" we've heard in the trailers is just a build-up and there's a payoff portion they are not revealing yet

    That would be great if it’s just a protracted intro section.

    According to Bang-a-Gong, it was.
