Hans Zimmer spoke on his theme for "Man of Steel" during an interview at the 2012 Festival Musique et Cinéma in Paris
"You do what you think is appropriate to the movie. So that's why with 'Man of Steel' I'm going to try to do something different. I have a very long theme. [Laughs] If you try to reinvent something, some times for better or for worse, you have to go and make it your own. You can't use somebody else's great idea."
