Back in June it was revealed that Joss Whedon had enlisted Danny Elfman to compose the score for Justice League, with Elfman coming on board the DC blockbuster as a replacement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Junkie XL.
Elfman has since revealed that he’s using parts of John Williams’ classic Superman theme in his score for the DC team-up, and now according to Film Music Reporter, he may also be revisiting his own iconic Batman theme from Tim Burton’s 1989 movie.
Treat this as a rumour for the time being, but if true, it will certainly be interesting to hear how Elfman incorporates the two classic themes into his score, and their inclusion will surely raise a smile among fans of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
