Justice League marketing is starting to ramp up quickly and we talk about some of the news that has started to come out. We also talk Wonder Woman, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Lucifer.
Danny Elfman talks scoring Justice League with Billboard
- Said it was like he never left; will have at least a moment of Wonder Woman’s theme
- Elfman – “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.”
- “The people at DC are starting to understand we’ve got these iconic bits from our past and that’s part of us, that’s part of our heritage — we shouldn’t run away from that. Contemporary thinking is, every time they reboot something, you have to start completely from scratch — which, of course, audiences will tell us again and again, is bull****. Because the single-most surviving and loved theme in the world is Star Wars, which they had the good sense to not dump for the reboots. And every time it comes back, the audience goes crazy. “
- Created “simple motifs” for other JL members
- Also mentioned he considered the “DNA” of John Williams Superman theme and his own Batman theme; doesn’t really say if they will be used exactly
- Whedon seemed excited telling him to use Williams and Batman theme.
- (Film Score Monthly) – Talked about his career when receiving Max Steiner Film Award (“he persuaded the producers to hire a string orchestra to embellish the mock-up.” for an emotional scene)
Zack Snyder shares some Justice League related stuff on Vero
- Old motherbox burial scene storyboards here
- Kent Farm without trees sketch (and for sale) here – is this from Man of Steel or Justice League?
- On aspect ratio here; Snyder enjoyed Imax scenes in BvS, so wanted to continue less rectangular look for JL – (normally 2.39:1, Justice League is 1.85:1)
