After the score for Batman v Superman was released, fans were bewildered that it contained none of the signature Hans Zimmer themes from Man of Steel, nor did it rise to the greatness of any of the previous Batman scores. If this track from the upcoming Justice League film by Danny Elfman is any indication, that complaint is about to be resolved.
It certainly sounds saturated with nods to Batman scores old and new, because it seems you can hear much of Elfman’s Batman themes for Tim Burton’s film versions, as well as more than a few dashes of Hans Zimmer’s work on the Dark Knight trilogy. This is good and it sounds familiar in regard to only the best of what’s been before. DC should embrace their history like this more obviously in the future.
