Supes Repping DC In London, Everything 'Justice League'


We got a lot of exciting news to get to, as we look ahead to the release of Justice League. But first here's a new look at Henry repping DC in London, as he trained at the Roger Gracie Academy today. Jiu Jitsu champ Faris Benlamkadem was among those who got to hang out with Supes...


"It's official, I've been recruited into the #JusticeLeague."

Thanks for sharing your photos everyone.

Things have been getting busier, with Justice League now just over a month and a half away. The word is a new trailer may be released by the end of next week, and who knows... maybe this time we even get a glimpse of Superman!


But before he arrives, The Flash and Cyborg think they're the boss..


We'll let them enjoy the spotlight for now. And check out these awesome storyboards from Justice League that director Zack Snyder just shared on his Vero account. Why is the Kent Farm for sale?... very revealing!



Justice League Composer Danny Elfman has also been dropping some major clues about his music in the film, including a track involving an emotional sequence that he just recorded in London. But the bigger reveal came as he talked to Billboard about incorporating John Williams’ Superman theme into the score:

You’ve just been in London recording the score for Justice League. It’s been 28 years since you scored Batman. What was it like going back into the DC universe? 

"It was great. It was like I never left because I’m using the same thematic material that I used back then. It never actually went away [Laughs.] It just was great fun.

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.” 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. 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."

Read the rest.

Finally, this new Justice League image is the cover of Italian Ciak magazine. Pretty cool!


Everything Justice League coming your way in the coming weeks, so keep checking back for the latest updates.

  1. Hope I read this wrong. I don't wanna hear Williams' Superman score in JL. The Zimmer one is WAY more fitting. I had a feeling something like this was gonna happen...

    1. I don't think we'll hear the old Superman theme perse, since he himself said that it will be a "twisted" version, and even he said that some DC fans won't notice.

      If anything, it will be something that may only be noticed by rewatching it and paying attention, cuz I think I remember Zimmer stating that he added a touch of the Williams score in the MoS OST, and even I have yet to notice in which track he incorporated the style!
