Zack Snyder Hasn't Seen Justice League

Zack Snyder Hasn't Seen Justice League
Though he's listed as the sole director of Justice League, Zack Snyder has admitted that he has not seen the movie, which debuted in theaters this week. Snyder left the project earlier this year for personal reasons and Joss Whedon took over, leading many to wonder how much was altered when the project changed hands. There have been arguments claiming that Whedon went in and totally changed Snyder's vision while others speculate that the movie didn't really change all that much, and that Whedon was faithful to Snyder's initial vision.

A Vero social media user recently chatted with Zack Snyder and took a screenshot of the conversation to share. In the conversation, Snyder admits that he hasn't seen Justice League since he left the project and does not give a reason for not seeing the movie. However, the director goes on to say that he wishes that he could have completed the trilogy.

Fans Launch Petition Asking Warner Bros. To Release A Director’s Cut Of Justice League

Justice League may have only just hit theaters today (our review), but fans have wasted no time in launching a petition asking Warner Bros. to release a director’s cut on home video in 2018.

The appeal was launched by Roberto Mata, and may well be longer than the actual Justice League script. However, at the gist of Mata’s proposition is a very reasonable argument: ardent DC fans want to see the original (and much longer) cut that Zack Snyder had envisioned, similar to how Warner Bros. launched the so-called Ultimate Edition of Batman V Superman late last year.

At the time of writing, Roberto Mata’s plea has garnered just over 3,000 signatures, but that number continues to grow by the minute. Here’s a brief extract from the petition:

…it’s understandable that the visionary filmmaker [Snyder] doesn’t own the rights to the film and that he stepped down for understandable,

Guitar Superhero Gary Clark Jr. on Covering the Beatles’ ‘Come Together’ for ‘Justice League’

Guitar Superhero Gary Clark Jr. on Covering the Beatles’ ‘Come Together’ for ‘Justice League’
To a lot of music fans of the post-rock generation, “Guitar Hero” is the name of a console game, not something that comes along in real life in the 2010s. Gary Clark Jr. is among the very few of those who’ve been minted lately. He may or may not count as an actual superhero, but there are enough of those to go around in the new “Justice League” film, which has his and Junkie Xl’s cover of the Beatles’ “Come Together” as the principal theme.

On a less heroic note, Clark Jr. also recently collaborated on a cover of Neil Young’s “Ohio” for a very different screen project, Ken Burns’ “The Vietnam War.” Variety spoke with the blues-rocker about both recordings, his Batman wanna-be inclinations, and how he plans to mix blues and hip-hop on his next album.

You’re going to be playing “Come Together” a lot on TV this year. It’s so non-linear

DC Fans Bash Joss Whedon Over Negative Justice League Villain Tweet

DC Fans Bash Joss Whedon Over Negative Justice League Villain Tweet
With Justice League opening in theaters just hours from now, the film has been part of a mild controversy this week, with Rotten Tomatoes withholding its TomatoMeter score. The score already leaked, standing at 46% rotten. While that is certainly not the score Warner Bros. was hoping for, another controversy has surfaced. Filmmaker Joss Whedon, who reworked the script and directed the reshoots after Zack Snyder backed away from the project due to a family tragedy, liked a tweet that bashes the movie's villain, Steppenwolf. This has not gone unnoticed by DC fans, who have taken the director to task on Twitter, not only for liking a tweet that disses the villain, but for not publicly offering any support for the movie whatsoever.

The tweet in question that Joss Whedon liked came from Vanity Fair critic Joanna Robinson, who stated on the social media platform that, "Steppenwolf is the worst comic

Ben Affleck, Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven on Joss Whedon’s Justice League involvement

Ever since director Zack Snyder dropped out of completing Justice League due to a family tragedy, people have wondered just how much of a role Joss Whedon would be taking as he stepped in to complete the film. He already made a couple big decisions, such as firing composer Junkie Xl and replacing him with Danny Elfman, and directing the reshoots that took place over the summer. He also helped write some of these additional scenes prior to Snyder’s departure.

Despite the few changes Whedon has done, Snyder remains the only credited director on the film and the cast has long said Whedon’s involvement was fairly limited compared to what they went through during principal photography. At the Justice League press event in London today, star Ben Affleck and producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven opened up a bit about just how much Whedon’s involvement was in the film.

Tyler Bates to score Deadpool 2

With Junkie Xl opting against a return in a show of solidarity with outgoing director Tim Miller, 20th Century Fox has enlisted a new composer to score its upcoming superhero sequel Deadpool 2, with Film Music Reporter revealing that the task has fallen to Tyler Bates.

Bates has previously collaborated with Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch on John Wick and Atomic Blonde, while he also has plenty of superhero movie experience, having scored the likes of Watchmen, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Netflix series The Punisher.

Justice League Brings Back Danny Elfman's Classic Batman Theme

Justice League Brings Back Danny Elfman's Classic Batman Theme
Danny Elfman has confirmed that he has brought back his iconic Batman theme for Justice League. The world practically stopped for a minute when it was announced that Danny Elfman would be taking over for Junkie Xl to compose the score for Justice League and rightfully so. Elfman is responsible for some of the most recognizable theatrical and television scores of the last 30 years. In fact, Elfman's Batman score is probably only rivaled by John Williams' score for Superman in terms of the most memorable comic book movie score in history, so the idea of that piece of music returning 28 years later is pretty exciting.

In an interview with Reporte Indigo, Danny Elfman was asked if the iconic Batman theme would show up in Justice League, to which the composer replied, "You will hear Batman's theme for Batman... Batman has only had one theme." This isn't the first time

Danny Elfman confirms that he will bring back his classic Batman theme for Justice League

The internet all but exploded when news broke that Danny Elfman would be replacing Junkie Xl as the composer for Justice League. Which is understandable, as Danny Elfman created one of the most iconic superhero themes of all time.

Aside from John WilliamsSuperman score, no other piece of comic book music is as memorable as that of Tim Burton’s Batman. Elfman created a piece of music that has been synonymous with The Caped Crusader ever since, and it looks like that iconic theme may be making a return.

In an interview with Reporte Indigo, Elfman was asked if he would be using his classic Batman score for Justice League, to which the composer replied: “You will hear Batman’s theme for BatmanBatman has only had one theme.”

WaterTower Music is proud to announce the November 10 release of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic action adventure Justice League. The album features one of the industry’s most versatile and accomplished film composers, Danny Elfman, who is returning to score a DC Super Hero film for the first time since 1992’s Batman Returns.

While bringing his celebrated and unique approach to the Justice League score, Elfman also gives DC fans some special familiar moments. Utilizing memorable character themes to tell the musical story, he incorporates and re-interprets iconic music from past films, including John WilliamsSuperman theme, Hans Zimmer’s Wonder Woman theme, and his own Batman theme. “I’m using the same thematic material that I used back then,” Elfman told Billboard Magazine. “It never actually went away. We’ve got these iconic bits from our past and that’s part of us, that’s part of our heritage.

Listen to Danny Elfman’s Justice League ‘Hero’s Theme’

Ever since Danny Elfman replaced Junkie Xl as the composer for Justice League, many have wondered exactly what his score would sound like. Elfman has created some of the most memorable themes for superheroes on film, like the theme for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy or, most importantly, the iconic Batman theme from Tim Burton’s Batman. Entertainment Weekly has now provided the track for Elfman’s ‘Hero’s Theme’ from the film. Check it out below…

EW also revealed the full tracklist for Justice League‘s soundtrack. Not only will it include Elfman’s music – as well as a couple extended bonus tracks – but will also have Sigrid’s ‘Everybody Knows’, The White Stripes’ ‘Icky Thump’ and the ‘Come Together’ Beatles cover featured in the first teaser trailer by Gary Clark Jr. and Junkie Xl.

Listen To A Track From Danny Elfman’s Justice League Score

Even though Junkie Xl is a fantastic composer in his own right, I’m reasonably certain that not many fans were up in arms when Danny Elfman was announced as being his replacement as composer on Justice League a few months back. After all, Elfman was responsible for the music heard in Batman and Batman Returns, both of which remain two of the best superhero soundtracks to this day, at least in my opinion. But, if you need a little more assurance, know that his resume also includes heavy hitters in the genre such as Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Hulk and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Still, there may be some of you out there that need more convincing, so it’s quite fortunate that a sample of the film’s score has now found its way online. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’re able to listen to the third track,

‘Wonder Woman’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock, Lucy Davis, Elena Anaya, Ann Wolfe, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Ann Ogbomo, James Cosmo, Martin Bishop | Written by Allan Heinberg | Directed by Patty Jenkins

Following her scene-stealing appearance in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie. Yes, she brought the Junkie Xl theme with her, the whole thing revolves around the silly Dawn of Justice, and there’s an obscene amount of speed-ramping, but bear with it, because Wonder Woman is actually, refreshingly, breathtakingly good.

With a few additions, this origin tale tells the story of Wonder Woman as the comic book literate would recognise it: moulded from clay and raised as an Amazon warrior on the all-female island of Themyscira, Diana – daughter of Queen Hippolyta and King of the Gods Zeus – travels to the world of mortals

Danny Elfman Reportedly Bringing His ‘Batman’ Theme To ‘Justice League’

  • The Playlist
The new trailer for “Justice League” is here, but I don’t think it has converted those on the fence about the movie to see it or dampened the enthusiasm of anyone who was already on board. For myself, the primary interest is the soundtrack by Danny Elfman. Replacing the previously hired Junkie Xl, Eflman is mixing a little bit of the old with a lot of the new in his score, revealing that John Williams’ classic Superman motif will make its way into the mix.

Danny Elfman reportedly using his classic Batman theme in Justice League score

Back in June it was revealed that Joss Whedon had enlisted Danny Elfman to compose the score for Justice League, with Elfman coming on board the DC blockbuster as a replacement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Junkie Xl.

Elfman has since revealed that he’s using parts of John Williams’ classic Superman theme in his score for the DC team-up, and now according to Film Music Reporter, he may also be revisiting his own iconic Batman theme from Tim Burton’s 1989 movie.

Treat this as a rumour for the time being, but if true, it will certainly be interesting to hear how Elfman incorporates the two classic themes into his score, and their inclusion will surely raise a smile among fans of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.

Danny Elfman using part of John Williams’ Superman score for Justice League

It’s fair to say Danny Elfman is one of the best and recognizable composers out there, creating some very memorable themes for films he’s worked on. Two of his most famous pieces is his seminal theme for Tim Burton’s Batman as well as Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man theme. When he joined Justice League in the wake of Joss Whedon’s hiring, the move was met with enthusiasm by many fans.

One of the big questions about Elfman’s work on Justice League would be whether or not he’d use the existing music and themes from Han Zimmer and Junkie Xl, heard in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In an interview with Billboard, Elfman revealed he is using some their work, but also said he’s used John Williams’ classic and epic theme for Superman in a scene in the film, as

‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman Says He Puts a Dark Twist on John Williams’ Superman Theme

  • Collider.com
Not much about the production of Justice League has been “traditional” in the sense of a normal track towards release, and that extends to the score. While Zack Snyder stepped away from the film earlier this year and had Joss Whedon come in and oversee post-production and some hefty reshoots, it very much sounds like the DNA of the Justice League that was originally shot was changed. This was underlined by the fact that, once Whedon signed on, he replaced original composer Junkie Xl with Danny Elfman, who also came on at the last minute to provide some additional …
