It’s now been confirmed that Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino will reunite with director Matt Reeves to compose the score for The Batman.
Reeves made the announcement at London’s Royal Albert Hall where Giacchino/David Arnold had been performing a concert.
The pair previously worked together on Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, War For The Planet of The Apes, Cloverfield, and Let Me In.
Michael posted a picture of the Bat-Signal on Twitter which was retweeted by Reeves reaffirming that announcement.
