Junkie XL confirmed in a recent interview that his score for Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League is finished.
When Zack Snyder left Justice League, so did its composer, Junkie XL. Superhero movie soundtrack veteran Danny Elfman was then brought in and produced a completely new score. Before being hired on Justice League, Junkie XL composed alongside Hans Zimmer for Batman v Superman. Hans Zimmer brought Junkie XL along to compose a new Batman theme for that film. When Zack Snyder was still working on Justice League, he brought on Junkie XL.
Danny Elfman was brought on late in Justice League‘s production and made the choice to disregard Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s themes. Instead, Danny Elfman opted to use his Batman march and John Williams’ classic Superman theme. With Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League still being talked about to this day, fans have wondered how complete his version was. Zack Snyder has said in the past that he has a cut of the film and now it seems Junkie XL has a finished score to go alongside it as well. Junkie XL confirmed to Screen Rant that he has a completed score for Justice League when asked about Zack Snyder’s cut of the film:
“Well, I definitely could, but I won’t. The full score is still there. It’s a really great score, and it’s just there. It never goes away. We’ll see what happens in the future, you know?”
Junkie XL couldn’t comment on if we may ever hear his Justice League score, but said this:
“I have no comment on that. But I’m just saying, it’s there. The full tracks.”
