One bright spot in the aftermath of the release of Justice League has been the reaction to Danny Elfman’s score. Elfman, who’s previous superhero themes are as iconic as ever, sat down with DC All Access to discuss what his favorite contribution to the score was.
While some fans might say their favorite part was the recurring Batman ’89 theme or the orchestral hints at John Williams’ legendary Superman theme, Elfman said his favorite part was a sequence at the end of the film in which he tied all the character’s themes together:
“It was fun. It was a huge puzzle coming into it. It was like a science project, but there’s a sequence at the end that really I think was the most fun for me, where it ties all the characters together and you have a moment with each of the characters, and using a single thematic throughline tying it all together was, I felt my best accomplishment for bringing something to the film.”

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.”
