When Joss Whedon took over for Justice League, original composer Junkie XL a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg had left the project and Danny Elfman had taken over. With Zack Snyder set to release his version of the film, Holkenborg is back with his original score, and Snyder has given fans a little tease of what to expect.
This comes from TheFilmJunkee:
What was so odd about Elfman’s choices for Justice League were that he chose to use some musical cues from previous superhero scores like Burton’s Batman and John Williams’ Superman. Though it did seem odd, word was going around that Elfman had a very tight schedule to fill when it came to scoring Justice League, so I don’t really blame him for trying to go ‘experimental’ and bring some of those elements bac.
Personally, I’m just happy to see Holkenborg back for the score. I think he’s done some fantastic work with Batman v Superman, and before all of these changes, we’ve had some pretty solid music like the theme from Man of Steel as well as Wonder Woman’s theme. Though word is going around that WB is officially giving up on Snyder’s original vision, some fans are hopeful that ZSJL will be a big hit for HBO Max, and it will urge the studio to reconsider their stance. It’s a long shot, but all fans really have is hope.
No specific release date has been set, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set to hit HBO Max in the March of 2021.
