During the post-production period of DC’s highly anticipated team up film Justice League, we learnt that famed music composer Danny Elfman had included a fun Easter egg. It was a Superman theme song that he had added into one of the tracks in the film which is a score used by John Williams in the 1978 classic hit Superman: The Movie.
The soundtrack listing for Justice League, that will bring all the superheroes under one roof released online, raising speculations over its cryptic track titles [list below]. Elfman’s newly released theme from Justice League titled the “Friends and Foes” has a subtle reference to one of the most loved musical cues – the iconic Superman theme.
The dark and a rather subtle reprise of Superman theme at the 0:22-second mark caught the attention of Twitter user SindarOath, who tweeted, “Someone just sent me the FRIENDS AND FOES track from #JusticeLeague. SMALL hint of John Williams in there.”
Justice League’s music composer Danny Elfman replaced Junkie X late in the production process. Elfman, in September, had teased his use of John Williams’ classic Superman theme in one of the tracks that he has composed for the Man of Steel. He had in an interview stated, “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.”
