Danny Elfman Uses String Orchestra for Emotional Scene

When Joss Whedon took over directing duties after Zack Snyder’s departure, Whedon also brought with him a new musical composer. Replacing Junkie XL was Danny Elfman, one of the superhero genre’s most experienced composers. His work includes, Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns, The Flash television series from the 90’s, and most recently he’s even worked on the animated series Justice League Action.

But it was Elfman’s collaboration with Whedon on Avengers: Age of Ultron that led Whedon to bring him aboard Justice League.

In a recent interview, Elfman revealed he finished recording the soundtrack for Justice League last week in London. But after doing mock-ups, Elfman explained that one specific scene did not receive the justice it deserved. He then persuaded the producers on the film to hire a full string orchestra to enhance that particular scene’s music.

It’s anyone’s guess what that scene could be, but it certainly has my curiosity piqued.
