No, I respectfully disagree. Zack Snyder's vision of Superman was bombastic and full of muscle, while William's score was built on the Americana, high trumpet playing, melodic-gifted feelings of joy and the spirit of a hero. Zimmer created something simple, as he's a minimalist composer. "Man of Steel," is a completely different feel than the original Superman films. Zimmer went into Snyder's vision, and in fact, Snyder offered Williams a chance to write the music, but Williams denied the opportunity because the two did not see Superman eye-to-eye. In terms of fitting William's theme into Zimmer's style, Zimmer would have been criticized even more. Again, look at the film and the director. Snyder did NOT want that theme. Zimmer gave Snyder what he wanted, and it fit well with the film.
