Last year, after Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice composer extraordinaire Hans Zimmer announced he'd no longer be doing the score for future DCEU movies, many wondered who could possibly fill his musical shoes.

While there's no official composer of choice to replace him in future movies as of yet, some of the more notable film melodists have expressed an interest. One such composer is Oscar-winner Michael Giacchino, who is known for his work on Up, Rogue One, and the reboot trilogy.

In an interview with Variant Comics during the premiere for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Giancchino was asked about his interest in composing for The Batman, to which he responded:

"It depends on who’s making it and who’s involved, but yeah, I would love to. I love Batman.”

Giacchino isn't a stranger to big-budget superhero fare, having crafted the tunes on last year's blockbuster Doctor Strange.

And with his upcoming roster of work, we wonder if Giacchino even has the time to add another property to his growing résumé. He's currently slated as the composer for another superhero film coming this summer, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not only that, but he's also scheduled to compose the score for two big-name sequels in Jurassic World 2 and the long-awaited The Incredibles follow-up, both set for a 2018 release.

Regardless, whether or not Giacchino decides to sign on for , he will continue to be viewed as one of the most prolific and memorable film composers of all time. And if he were to compose for the movie, then he'd be joining a great team in Matt Reeves and Ben Affleck. And doesn't that sound like a holy trinity?

Do you want Michael Giacchino to compose The Batman? Who else would you like to see make the music for the Caped Crusader's next solo film? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and check out the trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, out in cinemas July 14, which also features Giacchino's musical handiwork.
