Danny Elfman is set to serve as the Justice League composer!
The Justice League composer has been found today as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the legendary Danny Elfman will score the superhero ensemble. The four-time Academy Award nominee is no stranger to the worlds of DC Comics and, in fact, has already composed themes for two members of the League. He scored Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman (and the 1992 followup Batman Returns) and also provided the theme for the 1990 The Flash tv series.
The trade notes that additional photography for Justice League has just started in London with Joss Whedon taking over from Zack Snyder. Whedon previously worked with Elfman on Avengers: Age of Ultron. Junkie XL, who had previously been planning to serve as the Justice League composer, will now head to Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM‘s video game adaptation Tomb Raider.
UPDATE: Junkie XL has since released a statement on Twitter which you can find below.
Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. While not in the official Justice League cast list released by Warner Bros., it is expected that Ciarán Hinds will play Steppenwolf, Amber Heard will appear as Mera, and Kiersey Clemons will appear as Iris West.
Justice League is set to hit the big screen November 10.
