Replacing set pieces seems to be the running theme on the Justice League set. First, Joss Whedon is asked to step into the director’s role as Zak Snyder steps down to be with his family during their time of mourning following the death of his daughter. Now, the project also has a new composer in veteran musician Danny Elfman.
Originally, Junkie XL was confirmed to score the film for DC & Warner Bros. Now, the plan is to have him report for duty on Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM‘s video game adaptation of Tomb Raider. Not to knock Junkie, but Elfman coming onto the project is a huge win for the studio and fans alike. Elfman is no stranger to composing for the superhero genre and specifically, DC characters. Elfman created the scores for Tim Burton’s mega-hit Batman, starring Michael Keaton, in 1989 and its sequel, Batman Returns in 1992. Elfman also created the series’ theme for The Flash in 1990 starring John Wesley Shipp.
Justice League is set to hit the big screen November 10.
