Who's creating which theme?

In BATMAN BEGINS, Hans and James created much of the musical world hand-in-hand. Hans focused more on Batman and James more on Bruce.

In THE DARK KNIGHT, Hans created the theme for The Joker while James developed a theme for Harvey Dent/Two Face that was based on a previous theme in BEGINS, one that I refer to as the Becoming a Hero theme.

So, for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, who's scoring what?

Although at first I am inclined to think that James would score Selina Kyle - not only because of stylistic choices, but also a possible character connection to Bruce Wayne - I am starting to think that Hans is too flamboyant to not want to jump all over such a character.

I have a feeling that Hans will do something like "Why so serious" for Bane in TDKR.
"Why so serious" was simply genius.

Thanks Teddy for moving the discussion here; it was getting buried in the other thread.

If Bane is going to be more physically and intellectually intense, I would hope for the theme to be deeper/heavier than what we got for the Joker. I would like a duality in the theme too, since physical strength and intelligence very rarely co-exist naturally in an individual.

I also wonder how much of a latino background Bane has, and how much of that are we going to get on screen to merit a track number.

I think JNH will get Catwoman, although I would like to hear Hans' interpretation.

I hope Bane has something way different from The Jokers theme...

Well, now that JNH isn't doing any of the themes, Zimmer's doing all of them! So will the Catwoman and Bane themes differ? Will they even have themes?
