JUSTICE LEAGUE Composer Danny Elfman Gives A Peek At His Process Of Scoring The Movie

Tasked with providing an iconic score for DC's flagship team, veteran composer Danny Elfman had to find a way to incorporate old and new themes in an exciting way. Hit the jump to see how he did it.

Most of the DC films since Man of Steel bear Hans Zimmer's mark as composer.  When Hans decided to move on to other projects, Junkie XL was hired as the sole composer for Justice League. Unfortunately, after a personal tragedy, Director Zack Snyder was unable to complete post-production on the film. Shortly after that, Joss Whedon, his replacement, chose not to use Junkie XL's work on the project. Joss then hired Danny Elfman at short notice to provide a score that was more in line with his take on the characters.

In this video from DC, Danny Elfman articulates the thought process behind why he chose to re-introduce certain classic themes while retaining some of Hans Zimmer's work.

Check out the video below and tell us whether you are happy with his work or if you think Junkie XL's music is more suited to the aesthetic established by Zack Snyder.
