‘Justice League’ Soundtrack Includes Classic Superman Easter Egg

A track from Danny Elfman's 'Justice League' score has been revealed to include a reference to John Williams' 'Superman: The Movie' soundtrack.

It’s been known for a while that Henry Cavill’s Superman would be making a dramatic return from the dead in next month’s Justice League. Exactly what role the Man of Steel will be playing, though, is still open to speculation. Outside of one trailer’s quick look at Clark in a dream sequence, we’re yet to see anything of him. Now a new piece of music from the film’s soundtrack may have hinted at Superman’s return.

The track, titled Friends and Foes, includes an easter egg from Justice League composer, Danny Elfman. That easter egg? An homage to the classic John Williams theme to Superman: The Movie.

Fans will surely be thrilled to hear this throwback to the classic Superman movie in Justice League. The extract, however, sounds a little more ominous than fans may remember. With all sorts of rumors swirling around Superman’s resurrection in the film, might this be an indication that the last son of Krypton has gone over to the dark side?

Interestingly, this isn’t the first Justice League reference to Superman: The Movie we’ve seen. The trailer scene that showed Clark and Lois reunited in what appears to be a dream, closely resembled a scene from the classic movie – right down to Clark’s fashion sense. Perhaps DC are hoping a few nods to the most beloved big screen take on the character can help their modern Man of Steel recover from the negative fan reaction to his last two movies.

Are you pleased to hear this classic Superman tune making a comeback? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

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.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.
