Fan-Made Video Sets Justice League’s Opening Against The Hans Zimmer And Junkie XL Score


As the Justice League fallout continues, one of Warner Bros.’ more contentious decisions was to bring in composer Danny Elfman (1989’s Batman) to fine-tune the film’s official score.

Elfman is perhaps best known for creating the iconic Batman theme, but a vocal portion of the DC community took issue with his involvement in Justice League. That largely comes down to the fact that, up until now, Warner has called upon Hans Zimmer and Antonius Tom Holkenborg (AKA Junkie XL) to score its superhero blockbusters, given the duo have already worked on both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The latter signaled Zimmer’s retirement from the superhero business, but it wasn’t until June of 2017 that Elfman replaced Junkie XL on Justice League, leaving many to wonder what could have been had Holkenborg remained on board. After all, ever since the film’s release late last week, viewers have bemoaned the bland, uninspired music of Justice League, though one passionate fan has served up a timely treat: the JL opening, only this time it’s set against music made by Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL.

And though it almost goes without saying, the following clip can be considered a major spoiler, given it’s essentially an uncut version of Justice League‘s opening scenes, in which the world remains in mourning over the death of Superman.

Justice League initially made its bow on Friday, November 17th, and since then, the Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon tentpole has struggled to light up the box office in the way Warner Bros. would have hoped. A soft $94 million debut in North America only exacerbated an already tricky situation, and from what we understand, the film must clear $600 million just to turn a profit. No pressure, then.
