Danny Elfman is now composing the score for Justice League, replacing Junkie XL. This piece of news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter.

As Joss Whedon took over as director after a tragic situation in Zack Snyder’s family, it’s likely that he is responsible for the change.

Junkie XL, whose real name is Tom Holkenborg, released a statement on Twitter regarding the entire situation and his disappointment.

“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.”

How do you feel about Elfman now doing the Justice League music? Do you think he’s a better choice than Junkie XL? Sound off in the comments below.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).

  1. No one is better at action scores than Junkie XL right now. So insane after his praise on BvS and Mad Max: Fury Road that he’d be replaced with Elfman, who’s been collecting paychecks for the past few years. So sad and so scared Whedon is gonna mess up the original vision.
