Newly Released Track from ‘Justice League’ Teases Superman’s Return

Newly Released Track from Justice League Teases Superman’s Return

Danny Elfman has taken the reigns from Hans Zimmer and is writing the score for Justice League. A few weeks ago, Elfman released a demo, titled ‘Hero’s Theme‘ which is offering a much different sound to the DCEU. It’s classic Elfman, but also delivers some of the same low-brass hits that are common in Zimmer’s scores. It’s a good sneak peak at the rest of the album and definitely piques one’s interest.

A few weeks ago, Apple Music subscribers got a taste of another track from the album, ‘Friends and Foes,’ which uses the classic Superman theme created by John Williams. However, what starts out in the beginning as a slow fanfare turns demented in the middle of the piece. This makes you wonder how Superman is set to return. Is he a friend or a foe?

In an interview with Billboard back in September, Elfman teased his usage of William’s theme (as well as Zimmer’s Wonder Woman theme), saying he was incredibly excited to get to play around with it.

“There are a few little fan moments. I instated a moment of the Wonder Woman theme that Hans Zimmer did for Batman Vs. Superman, but I also had two minutes where I had the pleasure of saying, ‘Let’s do John Williams’ Superman.’ and that for me was heaven, because now I have a melody to twist, and I’m using it in an actually very dark way, in a dark moment. It’s the kind of thing that some fans will notice. Some won’t. It’s a moment where we’re really not sure whose side he’s on.”

Fans can also expect the return of the classic Batman theme Elfman created for the 1989 film staring Michael Keaton.

The soundtrack for the film is shaping up to be quite impressive as its combining the best of the film score world. I certainly can’t wait to hear what Elfman has cooked up for the film.

Justice League opens in theaters November 17th.
