Danny Elfman is one of my favorite superhero composers. While I love the 1990s Flash theme, I gotta vote original with the 1989 Batman theme. Not only because Elfman used it later in the Josstice League(which I certainly didn't mind as someone who unpopularly liked the film), but it was used in Crisis among all Batman-related sequences, including Kevin Conroy's introduction, which was insane to watch as a Batfan.
Certainly been enjoying the classic Flash theme more and more as I watched the show before Crisis. Has a very exciting, but gothic vibe to it.
Absolutely. I admit, I was kinda bummed when Elfman decided to create a new theme for Ezra's Flash but after seeing Flash-90 in Elseworlds, I got over it. Lol
Never understood why people constantly wanted to bring back Zimmer instead.
Because his scores are "perfect". Which I can't disagree with on most films, including Nolan's Batman trilogy. But while I was ok with Man of Steel, I did not like his BvS score at all, but they also had Junkie XL too so hard to decide where's to blame. Personally, I'm wondering why complain over the re-usage of old themes in JL in the first place...oh wait, Snyder fans.
But yeah, when I think of the DC scores, Batman=Elfman, Superman=Williams.
Zimmer's stuff for TDKT is pretty good... for the tone of that trilogy, but for Batman overall, it is always Elfman. When you get to the DCEU, it's mostly generic aside from one score which is just a pretty okay score. In the end though, yeah, Superman's theme is John Williams' score.
