Great News for The Dark Knight - Hans Zimmer Back

One of the best parts of Batman Begins was the amazing soundtrack - one of the best scores I've ever heard… ever! And this was due largely to the brilliant work of the great Hans Zimmer. He's the same man behind such greats as The Lion King's Oscar winning score, Gladiator's beautiful score, and most recently, the score for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest's (and At World's End).
The good news is that he's confirmed (via an interview on SoundtrackNet) to be back again for the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight. I did not fear his leaving, but this is a welcome confirmation. This just adds on another awesome element of what is looking to make The Dark Knight awesome. Just keep adding more and more and it could turn out even better than Batman Begins, but that will prove to be awfully tough.
