What do you think?
Sound-wise it's rather far from what Zimmer/J XL did. They've created pretty coherent soundscape in MoS and BvS and now it starts to disintegrate. Seems like Elfman did not even try to sound close to the previous films. The sound palette and the whole production are very different.
Content wise, huh, he really used Williams' Superman theme from 1978. There goes your movie universe coherence again. MoS, BvS and JL are supposed to be a trilogy. I bet there will be Zimmer's Man of Steel theme somewhere in the movie but Williams' one is from a totally different universe.
I'm really curious how will this vintage style score work next to the epic modern superhero picture. I miss the over-processed sound full of pounding drums already. It suited the visuals perfectly. This is the kind of a movie where you can go full rock and roll.
But I have to say, I like Elfman's rich harmonic vocabulary and the way he develops pieces. Even thought it does not sound like a DCEU thing, I like Frieds and Foes a lot. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the score.
