Danny Elfman Will Officially Score ‘Justice League’

Danny Elfman Justice LeagueIf you are looking forward to the upcoming DC Comics film Justice League, and are a big fan of composer Danny Elfman, then this will get you excited. The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that Elfman is officially scoring the new DC film.

Elfman is definitely not a stranger to the world of superhero films as his resume is filled of comic book properties. His body of work includes Tim Burton’s Batman films, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Ang Lee’s Hulk and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Zack Snyder had stepped away from post-production on the film due to the tragic death of his daughter Autumn Snyder. It was also revealed that Joss Whedon would be finishing up post-production for Snyder while also filming additional scenes. With this announcement, it marks as an reunion between Whedon and Danny Elfman since working together on Age of Ultron.

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as  Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielson as Queen Hippolyta and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon.

Justice League opens in theaters on Friday, November 17.

6 Reasons Why ‘Justice League’ Could Be Better Than ‘Avengers’

Previous1 of 7

Justice League
The DC Cinematic Universe needs a win and Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder have their fingers crossed Wonder Woman and Justice League will give things a boost. Aquaman keeps adding members to the cast and is set to start shooting soon while Flash has already lost two directors, meaning there’s a lot riding on WB’s next two big DC movies to secure a future for their cinematic plans.

There’s a lot to look forward to in Justice League and quite a few reasons to believe it could match or surpass The Avengers. WB is introducing most of their supporting characters for the first time in Justice League opposed to how Marvel had already introduced every member of the team by the time they came together for The Avengers. That means we have a lot to watch for as we meet a lot of characters on the big-screen for the first time.

Hit Next to find out why Justice League might be better than The Avengers.

    WOW!!! Will he sneak in parts of the iconic Batman theme(s) from Batman and Batman Returns. I am going to love how he incorporates Hans, Junkie XL, and any music from the Wonder Woman composer. Plus is he creating the themes for Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg?

  • Nando

    OMFG

  • alexpedro

    PLEASE USE THE CLASSICAL THEMES! AT LEAST ONLY ONCE!

  • Maxi Iroh

    DAMN!! Can’t wait to get at least a hint of his Batman themes.

    • Darthmanwe

      No. No no. No. No no no.

      We don’t need 70s creeping up on us music-wise. That’s a completely different sound with different ambience.

      Elfman’s own derivation of Zimmer & Junkie XL setups will be fine enough. There is no f….g need to rehash 40 YEAR OLD stuff.

  • Diego Fernando Salazar Proaño

    I’m going to be in the minority here but I’ll say it anyway: I don’t like these news. I like Elfman but I don’t think his style fits what we’ve already seen from the DCEU’s music. That being said, what he did in Age of Ultron really surprised me as he was able to blend seamlessly with Brian Tyler’s remaining score. Hopefully, he respects the existing themes from Superman (no, not the Williams theme, it just doesn’t fit, get over it), Batman (his theme in BvS was amazing) and Wonder Woman.
    It’s a shame, I was looking forward to listen to what Junkie XL had in store.

  • Darthmanwe

    Dammit, I was hoping for a Junkie XL epic again….. *sigh* Oh well, Elfman will do fine.

    • Darthmanwe

      I believe he can write for almost anyone very well, but I have major doubts about his ability to compose a satisfying musical que for the Flash.
