Danny Elfman Overtaking Junkie XL As Justice League Movie Composer

We heard a few weeks ago that Zack Synder had to back away from directing the Justice League movie due to him still suffering the effects of his daughter's suicide. The movie's last few scenes will now be directed by Joss Whedon. Now, another person has been replaced.

Story continues below....

When the Justice League movie was first announced, it was revealed that Junkie XL would be composing the music for it. He was previously responsible for composing music for Deadpool and collaborated with Hans Zimmer on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Danny Elfman is now composing the movie. Elfman worked with Whedon on Avengers: Age of Ultron and Elfman is famous for the awesome Batman 1989 theme. Junkie XL left a statement on his departure which you can read down below.

As my mentor Hans Zimmer told me -- you haven't made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project. So I guess [I] finally graduated this week. It pains me to leave the project, but a big thanks to Zack for asking me to part of his vision, and I wish Danny, Joss and Warner Bros all the best with Justice League

Both Junkie XL and Hans Zimmer could still be a part of the Justice League since Warner Bros. could still recycle the themes they created previously for the likes of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Elfman will just be scoring new material for the other characters. Hopefully he is able to score a memorable Justice League theme. Elfman will have to start thinking of the score pretty quickly with the movie coming out this November.
