THE BATMAN: Listen To Composer Michael Giacchino's New Theme In Full Right Here

We've heard snippets of this in the various trailers and TV spots, but Michael Giacchino's new theme for The Batman has now been officially released in full, and it's pretty damn powerful!

The Batman director Matt Reeves announced that composer Michael Giacchino's main theme for the movie would debut tonight, and while it hasn't been officially released in The U.S. just yet, an international version has found its way online.

We've had a few teases of this new theme in the various trailers and TV spots, but the full six-minute track can be heard by clicking the link below. The first few minutes are quite mellow for a Batman score (it's actually somewhat reminiscent of Howard Shore's work on The Fellowship of The Ring), but it kicks up a notch around the 4 minute mark!

Reeves send out another Tweet revealing that he's just finished qc'ing (quality checking) the film on an IMAX screen, and it "looked and sounded so incredible." Though nobody is going into any real detail, we have heard that The Batman really is something special, so that near 3-hour runtime shouldn't be too daunting.

"Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens."

“When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”

We recently learned that The Batman will be rated PG-13 for “strong violence, disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.” The movie is set to hit theaters on March 4.
