Junkie XL explains his approach to scoring ‘Batman v Superman’

ComicBook.com caught up with Junkie XL to talk about his work on Deadpool, but naturally Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was brought up as well. Junkie XL explained his approach to scoring the movie with Hans Zimmer, and that he purposely didn’t look back at the music that came before him.

“Now let’s go back to Superman or Batman, Superman… Keeping that in the back of your head, it makes little or no sense to examine what somebody else had done over the last ten or twenty years. Because in fifty years from now, when we’re all dead, somebody else is going to take a stab at Batman vs. Superman. Do you know what I mean? You don’t want that person to say, ‘Oh, let’s look back and see what Hans Zimmer and Tom did there in 2016.’ It’s like, ‘No, he’s going to do his own thing that he feels fits the time or fits at the movie.’ That’s exactly what Hans and I did. We made the movie our own. We observed it. We came up with the best possible solution for that movie in combination with the wonderful Zack Snyder. It’s really what that is.”

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice soundtrack is now available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes. You can listen to 90 seconds of the 14 minute Batman theme right here!
