The Hollywood Reporter has discovered that Danny Elfman is taking over as the composer of the “Justice League” movie.
The hiring comes just as the additional photography, with Joss Whedon standing in for Zack Snyder, for the movie gets underway in London. Whedon is overseeing the new shoot and post-production work on “Justice League” after Snyder stepped aside to deal with a family tragedy.
Snyder had been working with Antonius Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, on the movie. Holkenborg, who scored “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and counts movies like “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Deadpool” among his credits, is now moving on to “Tomb Raider”, according to sources.
Elfman is no stranger to superhero films, having scored “Batman”, “Batman Returns”, “Spider-Man” and “Spider-Man 2”.
