Listen to Michael Giacchino’s Main Theme Music to THE BATMAN!

By: John M Jerva

In terms of superhero main themes, my top three are John William’s original Superman followed by Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel. The latter is especially a favorite of mine and gives me chills every time I hear it. It just screams superhero epic. It’s just a coincidence that they’re both Superman films but I throw in Danny Elfman’s iconic music from Tim Burton’s Batman featuring Micheal Keaton as another go to one of mine. A close runner up to these picks would be the main title theme to The Avengers which would represent the Marvel Studios side of things.

With that said, I’m very excited to see what Matt Reeve’s The Batman has to offer and the initial trailers have definitely won me over at this point. But how is the music you say? Well, we have our first taste to answer that question.

Warner Bros. has just dropped the full main theme from the upcoming Dark Knight epic from composer Michael Giacchino and shine I have to listen to it a little more it’s winning me over. It certainly fits with the atmosphere of the film which is bordering on more horror than comic book and Reeves has even stressed that it walks a fine line between the two genres.

Take a listen to the full version in the player below and decided for yourself! I think it’s a keeper.

Official Synopsis: It’s not just a call… It’s a warning. From Warner Bros. Pictures comes Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne. Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies—Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Starring alongside Robert Pattinson (Tenet, The Lighthouse) as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) as Selina Kyle; Paul Dano (Love & Mercy, 12 Years a Slave) as Edward Nashton; Jeffrey Wright (No Time to Die, Westworld) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the Transformers films, The Plot Against America) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (The Magnificent Seven, Interrogation) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Jayme Lawson(Farewell Amor) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the Planet of the Apes films, Black Panther) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (The Gentlemen, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Oswald Cobblepot.

I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited for this version and once again when Pattinson was first announced, I didn’t jump ship like so many did. I always wait til I see the product and this looks pretty bad ass for a Batman flick.

Make sure you go to the restroom before the show starts and stay away from the beverages as it’s just been revealed that the newest film version of DC’s Dark Knight will have a running time of two hours and 55 minutes! Can you say bladder control?

The Batman hits theaters exclusively on March 4th! If you won’t be able to catch the Dark Knight on the big screen, then you’re in luck as the film will hit HBOMAX for all subscribers on April 19, 2022.
