Watch the video below for a very interesting interview with the legendary film composer Hans Zimmer to understand why he took the challenge of composing the score for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after his work on The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel, and listen closely to the music in the background for glimpses of what possibly will be part of the score of the much anticipated sequel:

I felt nobody ever addressed the idea that Peter Parker...is young, and that the music he would listen to, that would move him, would be different from the music Batman would listen to. And I thought there should be a playfulness about it.

While I quite enjoyed the James Horner score for The Amazing Spider-Man, I'm pretty excited with how passionate Hans Zimmer seems about this project, especially after watching this interview. Zimmer is a genius, and I'm absolutely in love with the direction he's taking this, it sounds like he's trying to emulate the whole friendly neighborhood feel of Spider-Man, hopefully we'll get an even better taste of his score with the Super Bowl TV spot in a few days.

"We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp."

The Amazing Spider-Man's greatest battle begins in May 2nd, 2014.

You should really stop editorializing in your 'news' articles.

I heard the theme during the comic con trailer that debuted last summer. It's the same theme from the first movie but imagine mass horns "DON-DON-DON-DOOOOOOOON then it goes one pitch higher repeating the same beats! It sounds freaking beautiful in the trailer! Someone upload it or I will! lol

I still think the soundtrack sounds to heroic for Spider-man. Too sure of it's self.

Part of the Spider-man myth of Peter's struggling self doubt. The thing that makes him a hero is that he chooses to over come his struggles.

To me Danny Elfman's music is the best movie version but I would like something like Spider-man The New Animated Series intro music in a movie version.
