Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Soundtrack Review

By: Anthony Garreffa | Editorials in HT & Movies | Posted: Mar 20, 2016 7:28 pm

Problems Up Here: The same maniac sounds from 'The Red Capes Are Coming' are featured in 'Problems Up Here'. But, it's tweaked and has its own feel towards the second half of the track.

 

Black and Blue: This is one of my favorite tracks from the entire soundtrack, and it goes for a lengthy 8:33. I would say this is the track used during the huge fight between Batman and Superman, and at 1:00 mark you can hear the same music used in the trailers when Batman fires the gun at Superman on the rooftop, but we hear more music past that.

It totally changes at 1:00 to something that feels like Superman is affected, where I'm guessing kryptonite comes into play and Zimmer nails it with conveying that over 'Black and Blue'. This is one of the best tracks from the entire soundtrack, where you can almost feel the punches between the two heroes. The big drum pieces feel like Batman is smashing down on Superman, but it all changes at 2:30 where the Man of Steel soundtrack comes back into play.

 

I'd say the fight swings between Batman and Superman, with Batman ultimately 'winning'. But, Superman sounds like he has some parts of this fight as the winner - especially at 3:10, when the Man of Steel music truly takes over, for 15-20 seconds at least.

 

'Black and Blue' ends quite emotionally, so I'm sure that Bruce and Clark work things out in the end - well, we kind of know they do, because the Justice League is forming at this point of the movie.

 

Tuesday: Tuesday is a weird name for a track from Batman v Superman, but Tuesday does rhyme with Doomsday... so that would make sense. I think this is where we see Doomsday introduced, and it leads directly into the next track: 'Is She With You?' when we see Wonder Woman hit the screen.

'Tuesday' sounds very Doomsday-like with some striking parts in the song where it feels like he's erupting out of his captivity or wherever Lex has him, and into the world.

 

Is She With You?: This is one of the most unique songs on the soundtrack, and it sounds like this is the Wonder Woman theme - at least for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We have an awesome electric cello, Batman's huge theme, and the Superman theme right at the end for a true blend of the Trinity. It's beyond epic.

 

Goosebumps is how I would explain it. Blending the three themes together plays out incredibly well, making me even more excited to hear this play during the impending battle between the Trinity (Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman) and Doomsday... excited would be a huge understatement.

 

This Is My World: This track starts off with the beautiful sounds of Man of Steel, and goes through an emotional rollercoaster of sounds. By the end of the track, we could expect the Trinity to be formed, with the Justice League possibly used with 'This Is My World'.

 

Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite): This track is a continuation from the work 'Must There Be A Superman?' and should hopefully lead to the huge ending that the rumors from people who have seen early screenings of Batman v Superman have hinted towards.
