Danny Elfman Brings Back Classic Superman Theme For ‘Justice League’

Since the replacement of Junkie XL for Justice League, fans have been eager to know what the new composer Danny Elfman plans to bring for the DC film. Recently, the music director discussed the project and gave some insight on the type of tracks that he has composed for the movie.

During his talk with Billboard, Elfman made a surprising revelation about one of the tracks that he has composed for the Man of Steel. The composer has brought back John Williams’ classic Superman theme for Justice League.

“There are a few little fan moments. I instated a moment of the Wonder Woman theme that Hans Zimmer did for Batman Vs. Superman, but I also had two minutes where I had the pleasure of saying, “Let’s do John Williams’ Superman.” and that for me was heaven, because now I have a melody to twist, and I’m using it in an actually very dark way, in a dark moment. It’s the kind of thing that some fans will notice. Some won’t. It’s a moment where we’re really not sure whose side he’s on.”

Elfman may have also spilled some details about the scene that features John William’s Superman. The composer’s comment suggests that Superman may not be on the good side.

It’s safe to say that fans will get to hear Wonder Woman’s ‘Is She With You’ in Justice League. But there’s no word yet if Elfman has also included Han Zimmer’s Man of Steel theme.

Elfman also spoke about the themes he wrote for characters such as The Flash and Aquaman in Justice League. Here’s what he had to say.

“I created very simple motifs. There are so many themes, you can’t just do a big theme for everything. So i created a motif for Flash, for Aquaman and Cyborg — but they’re very simple things, and [DC] understood. I said, “These things may never be used again, but I’m giving you all the components, should you wish to have things to build on.” So they either will or they won’t, but that’s how I approach a project like this. You have to take the attitude that this is the beginning of a mythology and it all matters, it all comes to fruition, and with any luck they will.”
