Danny Elfman Will Compose The Musical Score For JUSTICE LEAGUE!
Danny Elfman is one of the biggest and most popular composers in the entertainment industry. His music has such a distinct sound and he has brought his talent to create musical scores for films such as Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Darkman, Batman, Batman Returns, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Men in Black, Spider-Man, Spider-Man II, Hellboy II, Hulk, Avengers: Age of Ultron and more.
Well, he's been hired to work with Joss Whedon on creating the musical score Justice League! As you can see by his resume, he has plenty of experience working on superhero movies and I'm sure he'll end up bringing something unique and special to Justice League.
Whedon recently stepped into the director chair of Justice League after Zack Snyder stepped away due to a family tragedy. He's currently doing reshoots for the film that are currently underway in London, it looks like some of those reshoots will involve and expansion of Wonder Woman's character.
Snyder previously had Antonius Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, working on the score for Justice League. He also scored Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to THR, he is now moving on to work on the new Tomb Raider film. In a statement he said:
"As my mentor Hans Zimmer told me — you haven't made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project. 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."
It kinda sucks that he had to be replaced, but I'm a huge fan of Elfman's work. He's such a wonderfully talented composer and there's no doubt in my mind that he's going to give the film an incredible musical score.
