It is amazing how listening to this score makes you think it is done for a Batman movie.If you completely ignore Lady in the Water, as many people did at the box office, you would think that this music was scored for Batman. A little dark for a dark world. The Blue World song belongs to that darkness. Do you agree?

Remember, Howard scored the last Batman with Zimmer. People back then, like the author of this website, indicated that they did know where Howard cues were in the Batman Begins Soundtrack. I am not really sure how is that not known. The core repetitive themes in Batman Begin has Howard Shore written allover it. Zimmer just used his electronic signatures to make it more grand and dark.
