The official soundtrack for Man of Steel is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, and with the pre-sale comes clips of the score by epic movie music maestro Hans Zimmer.
Fans got an early listen to the score in the third preview for the movie, a rather nostalgic, adventure-ready trailer that brought to mind so many beloved moments in Superman’s story more so than the previous previews that highlighted the more gritty, Dark Knight-esque feel that Man of Steel seems to be introducing to the franchise. Helping evoke that tone was steadily building, triumphant music by Zimmer — that trailer music is the third track on the album. But judging from the brief clips now available of each track, the full score has both grand, epic and solemn, meditative tracks that should help create the action-packed yet also character-driven and contemplative movie Man of Steel is aiming to be.
There are also titles available for each track on the album, including a particularly intriguing though POTENTIALLY SPOILERY one of Panic! at the Disco length: “What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?” It’s a title that seems in line with the idea of a reluctant hero who just wants to fit in on this alien planet — the way actor Henry Cavill and director Zach Snyder described this re-imagining of the character in EW’s recent cover story. And a title that seems to suggest Clark Kent might be thinking about hanging up the cape.
Here is the full track list for the album:
1. Look to the Stars
2. Oil Rig
3. Sent Here for a Reason
5. Goodbye My Son
6. If You Love These People
7. Krypton’s Last
10. You Die or I Do
13. I Will Find HIm
14. This Is Clark Kent
15. I Have So Many Questions
17. What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?
18. Man of Steel (Hans’ Original Sketchbook)
Man of Steel opens in theaters on Friday, June 14. The soundtrack will be available on Tuesday, June 11.
