Superhero movies have some of the moodiest scores around, but there’s something to be said for a peppy jingle! Everyone remembers the famous ‘Batman’ theme (composed by Neal Hefti) from the 1960s TV show. In fact, it was one of the first songs Prince learned to play and used it as the basis for his #1 hit ‘Batdance’ when he composed the soundtrack to the 1989 ‘Batman’ movie directed by Tim Burton. And they even used the ‘Spider-Man’ theme song from the classic 1967 cartoon in the 2002 film. (The original theme was composed by Paul Francis Webster and Robert “Bob” Harris.)
And then there’s ‘Wonder Woman’! Composed by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel, the original theme song is still invoked to this day, most recently in the above video, posted by Youtuber Sebastian Hughes, which remixes footage from ‘Batman V Superman’ and the two ‘Wonder Woman’ trailers, featuring Gal Gadot as the new Amazing Amazon.
The theme was also used during Wonder Woman’s first appearance on ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold’ which you can view below:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Also starring in the new film are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Patty Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder and Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.
‘Wonder Woman’ opens on June 2, 2017.
