Danny Elfman has been hired to compose the ‘Justice League’ soundtrack. Elfman previously worked with Joss Whedon on ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’.
Previously, Zack Snyder had enlisted Batman v Superman’s Junkie XL (who also composed the music to Mad Max Fury Road and Deadpool) to score the superhero ensemble. However, the composer has now moved onto the Tomb Raider reboot. It’s unknown if any of Junkie XL’s music will be retained for the final release of the film.
Last month it was revealed Zack Snyder had to step down due to family tragedy. After the initial test screening of Justice League, Snyder wanted to add some scenes. However, due to the tragedy he had to step down entirely from the film to be with his family.
Warner Bros decided to delay the film, but Zack refused. They brought on The Avengers director Joss Whedon to helm the reshoots and finish all post-production to meet it’s November release.
DC fans instantly recognize Danny Elfman’s name as the composer of Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989. His Batman theme has become a staple for the character. It also served as the inspiration for the opening to Batman: The Animated Series in 1992.
Do you think he’ll be a good fit for Joss Whedon and Zack Snyder’s Justice League?
