Tom Holkenborg AKA Junkie XL confirms his score for (The Snyder Cut of) Justice League is complete

October 30th, 2019 by Marc Comments

This is exciting news from the world of Snydercut tonight.

In case you’ve lived under a rock for the last two years, you may not know that Joss Whedon was brought in to restructure Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie when Snyder had to leave over a family tragedy.

The movie, based on all we now know and the footage we saw in trailers pre-release, was greatly changed from Snyder’s vision – which is a great shame.

However, while all this is a kick in the teeth for fans of Snyder and his DC movies, one of the things that irked many – myself included – was the loss of the original score for the movie.

Danny Elfman (one of my favourite composers) was called in to re-compose the score for the movie, taking it out of the hands of Tom Holkenborg AKA Junkie XL who had worked with Hans Zimmer on the scores for Man of Steel and Batman V Superman and between them both, they created two of the greatest movie scores of all time.

And it was thought more-or-less, that Holkenborg’s score was either lost or never completed.

It seems we were wrong on both counts.

In a recent interview the musician revealed that “The full score is still there. It’s a really great score, and it’s just there. It never goes away. We’ll see what happens in the future, you know?”

Wait… in the future?! Does he mean we my eventually get it released?!

“I have no comment on that,” he says, “But I’m just saying, it’s there. The full tracks.”

As someone who has spent a small fortune on collecting all the DCEU scores on vinyl (get the finger out with the Aquaman and Shazam score, you lot!), I would pay a very large, unreasonable amount of money for this score.

What say you all?
