"There are a few little fan moments. I instated a moment of the Wonder Woman theme that Hans Zimmer did for Batman vs. Superman, but I also had two minutes where I had the pleasure of saying, 'Let’s do John Williams’ Superman,'" said Elfman. "And that for me was heaven, because now I have a melody to twist, and I’m using it in an actually very dark way, in a dark moment. It’s the kind of thing that some fans will notice. Some won’t. It’s a moment where we’re really not sure whose side he’s on."
"The people at DC are starting to understand we’ve got these iconic bits from our past and that’s part of us, that’s part of our heritage - we shouldn’t run away from that," Elfman said. "Contemporary thinking is, every time they reboot something, you have to start completely from scratch - which, of course, audiences will tell us again and again, is bullshit. Because the single-most surviving and loved theme in the world is Star Wars, which they had the good sense to not dump for the reboots. And every time it comes back, the audience goes crazy."
That being said, when asked if he created new characters for film-first characters such as Flash and Aquaman, he said yes.
Justice League is scheduled to open in theaters November 17.
