When Danny Elfman got the gig composing the Justice League score, it caused a huge debate among fans, with some put out on behalf of Junkie XL and the rest totally ecstatic. A score by Elfman was always going to be a big talking point, with the composer’s previous superhero work including Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns, as well as Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Well, now he has confirmed he’ll definitely be bringing back his classic Batman theme for Justice League and we’re really happy about it.
He’s not only bringing Batman’s theme back, but he previously revealed he’ll be playing with John Williams’ classic Superman theme in the upcoming movie too.
“And that for me was heaven, because now I have a melody to twist, and I’m using it in an actually very dark way, in a dark moment. It’s the kind of thing that some fans will notice. Some won’t. It’s a moment where we’re really not sure whose side he’s on.”
We’ll have to wait and see which side Superman decides to join later this month. Elfman has also released one of the tracks from the film – ‘Hero’s Theme’ – ahead of the premiere.
Justice League flies into theaters on November 17.
