Justice League looks to be quite the fanservice-y entry to the pantheon of DC films, and it sounds like we may have a lot to think Danny Elfman for. Not too long ago, Elfman confirmed that he would be giving a dark twist to the classic Superman Theme from John Williams, but that won’t be the only film who will be getting a theme revival.

Speaking with Reporte Indigo, Elfman stated that his original 1989 Batman theme will also be returning in Justice League. Check out the video below, or the quote underneath, to see what he has to say:

“No, you will not hear a new theme for Batman. You’ll hear Batman’s theme…” Elfman said.

When asked if he meant the theme from Batman v Superman, Elfman denied that, saying:

“No. You’ll hear Batman’s theme. Batman has only had one them. [My theme]. Hans has done some wonderful, driving, rhythmic stuff, but there has only been one theme and it’s Batman’s theme.”

Are you excited to hear that we’ll have a chance to revisit the 1980s, even for a brief moment, with Batman’s original theme from Tim Burton’s Batman? Let us know down below!

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.

      it’s short hand instead of creating something new and having to set up dozens of moments to have the cue come in at the right time for a movie that has 6 leads.

      Because its awesome! The music not the movie don’t get things confused, JL is going to blow chunks.

    I love Elfman, but before his (amazing) Batman theme there was (and there always will be):

    Yes!!! Now let’s hope he used the JL animated theme in some form… Longest 16 days ever…

      season 1 or JLU’s rock solo?

    It’s a weird problem to balance everything. Like the early audio that came out, does sound loud, over the top but also Avengers style. Like Wonder Woman’s theme is so tacky it’s fun but it’s good short hand “THIS CHARACTER IS FROM ANOTHER WORLD!” Right now it still seems like it’s still difficult to pin down these characters from one another that music is becoming that guidelines for audience to know how to feel.
    I’m not going to be surprise this maybe Elfman being closer to Ongo Bongo era than he has been in the past couple years when he’s toned himself down.

    Well at least there will be one good thing about this movie, and bonus you don’t even have to open your eyes to enjoy it!

    This movie hype is getting more depressing by each new article that comes out.
