Although he was ultimately replaced by Danny Elfman in conducting the score for last year’s Justice League, Tom Holkenborg, or better known to most people as Junkie XL still made his mark on the always growing DC Extended Universe with his collaboration with Hans Zimmer in the score for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although the film may have been divisive between fans and critics, Junkie XL’s kinetic and brooding suites featured in the DC Comics film has made him a fan-favorite amongst fans of the comic book genre.
The composer took to social media to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the construction of the epic score for the on-screen battle between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. The video posted clocks in at 46 minutes and should be required viewing for budding producers and musicians alike as the tutorial gives us an extremely detailed look at the assembling of the music behind one of Batman v Superman’s pivotal moments.

Fans can now watch Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill reprise their roles as Batman and Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
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 Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

What Walter Hamada Can Bring To DC Films
Walter Hamada has been announced as the new head of DC Films. This news was not entirely unexpected. Justice League did not perform well to anyone’s expectations, critically and financially. When a major tentpole does not perform well, there are bound to be shakeups within a studio. That means people are moved both out of and into positions of power.
So even though Hamada is now running things, there will still be time before we see his effect on the DC Extended Universe. Aquaman is already in post-production, Shazam! is in the middle of pre-production and Wonder Woman 2 is gearing up to start shooting later this year. That takes the franchise up to the end of 2019, giving Hamada enough time to really get acclimated before making an impact.
Here is just how he can do so. Click Next to see what Hamada can bring to DC Films!
