The release of the soundtrack comes just days before the film’s release and follows WaterTower Music’s campaign over the past few weeks digitally releasing three of Giacchino’s powerful musical character themes, each of which has captivated fans of the whole world. The first music to be heard from The Batman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) was, in order of release: “The Batman”, “The Riddler”, and “Catwoman”.
“I love working with Michael Giacchino, he’s one of my favorite people.” Explained the director of “The Batman”, Matt Reeves. “So when I got ‘The Batman,’ I went to see him knowing he had the same kind of love and connection to Batman as I did. He told me he wanted to do what we had never been able to do – record before I even shot a frame. He said: ‘I want us to record a sequel, as if it was Beethoven’s Unknown Sonata from Batman that had been found, and we let’s use it to score the whole movie.” I was excited about that, so he started writing while I was still writing, and he was sending me little sample recordings of songs he was doing on the piano .
Reeves said that later, “the night before Robert (Pattinson) had a screen test, Michael sent me this amazing sequel which had the Batman theme – he had it set up with an orchestra – and I was blown away! It was so emotional. I drove to the set, and (Batman producer) Dylan Clark was there, and I said, ‘You have to get in the car.’ He sat in the passenger seat and I turned up the music and we both literally cried, he thought it was amazing too.
“I just felt like it was a very special and fateful day, because Robert was about to be in one of the classic Batsuits, we were going to shoot some scenes, and there we were listening to this perfect music “, continued Reeves. “Suddenly you felt like you were about to be a part of movie history that meant so much to you and meant so much to everyone. That music helped Robert Pattinson become Batman, and we were listening to that music all the weather.
