If like me your dug the hell out of Hans Zimmer’s score featured in the recently released 3-minute ‘Man of Steel’ trailer, the internet has delivered, as  ResurrectedXII has debuted one of the songs in the trailer, ”An Ideal of Hope”, on their Youtube channel. Zimmer previously worked with DC Comics on Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy: ‘Batman Begins,’ ‘The Dark Knight’ and last summers ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ Zimmer also worked with Nolan, who’s co-producing ‘Man of Steel,’ on ‘Inception,’ for which he received an Oscar nomination. To date the composer has been nominated for nine Oscars and previously won for Disney’s ‘The Lion King.’ ‘Man of Steel’ will mark the first Zack Snyder-directed film on which the helmer hasn’t worked with composer Tyler Bates, who scored ‘Dawn of the Dead,’ ’300,’ ‘Watchmen’ and ‘Sucker Punch.’ Expect more details about the ‘Man of Steel’ soundtrack soon.

Arriving in cinemas on June 14th, ‘Man of Steel’ is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy) from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill as Superman in the film from director Zack Snyder. The film also stars three-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (“The Fighter”) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White.
