Danny Elfman to Score JUSTICE LEAGUE
Danny Elfman, composer of the iconic 1989 Batman theme and Sam Raimi’s first two Spider-Man movies, will score Justice League, THR reveals.
Elfman boards as Joss Whedon (The Avengers) fills in for director Zack Snyder on additional photography, with the film recently shooting scenes in Bedfordshire, England. Elfman, who previously teamed with Whedon on Avengers: Age of Ultron, is no stranger to the superhero genre: the composer has laid tracks for Batman, Batman Returns, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Hulk, and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
The composer replaces Antonius Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL), who scored Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (coming up with that now iconic Wonder Woman theme in the process). “As my mentor Hans Zimmer told me — you haven’t made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project,” Holkenberg told THR. “So I guess [I] finally graduated this week. It pains me to leave the project, but a big thanks to Zack for asking me to part of his vision, and I wish Danny, Joss and Warner Bros all the best with Justice League.” Holkenberg will now move on to score another Warner Brothers production instead: Tomb Raider, due out March 2018.
Justice League opens November 17th.
