Justice League: Composer Danny Elfman Comes Aboard

According to the Hollywood Reporter, famed composer Danny Elfman will provide the score for DC’s upcoming Justice League for the additional scenes being shot. He will replace Antonius Tom Holkenberg who had been working with Zack Snyder. Holkenborg, who is perhaps better known as JunkieXL, and provided the music for last year’s Batman v Superman and Deadpool, is said to be headed over to work on the score for Tomb Raider. Speaking with the outlet, Holkenborg shared some advice he received from Hans Zimmer.

“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.”

Elfman, who composed the familiar theme song for The Simpsons, and has what appears to be endless credits on his IMDb page, is no stranger to the world of superhero movies as he scored both of the Tim Burton Batman flicks (he has worked on many other Burton films), the first two Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man movies, and also came in during the late stages of Avengers: Age of Ultron to blend with music already put down by Brian Tyler. 

This is the second last minute replacement for Justice League along with Joss Whedon, who is finishing up the directorial duties of the film for Zack Snyder, who had to leavethe film due to a family tragedy (though we have learned that Whedon had been helping out on the project before Snyder had to leave).

Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.
