John Williams has no issues whatsoever in the new Superman movie called Man Of Steel having a soundtrack by Hans Zimmer. But he has said watching a Superman movie without the late and great Christopher Reeve will be hard.
In an interview with Zap2it the composer said:
"It puts me in mind of the late Chris Reeve, who we all loved so much. It's going to be hard for me not to let go of the music, but to let go of the idea of Superman being Chris."
"I thought he not only made that project successful, he embodied what all of us imagine Superman to look like if he could be given skin and bone, I think," he added.
He went on to say that he doesn't know if the film will use his score: "I haven't seen it, but I'm sure it will be wonderful. I don't know if they've used any of the original music or not; it's a Warner Bros film, in which case, they certainly have the right to do so.
"I hope it will be successful, and I look forward to seeing it."
