The new Justice League composer is Danny Elfman, best known for the original Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman theme.

As for the other directors I mentioned….

Just in case you forgot Linda Carter’s glory:

I still can’t remember or find what director Patty Jenkins calls Wonder Woman’s finishing move (it was something like “ba-boom” or “whiz-bang,” or whatever), but she called it something.

Meanwhile….

I was listed as “Richard S. Meyers” in the end credits as “Background Researcher.”

And, of course:

Or, as it should have been called, The Cruise.

Scripter David Koepp’s speaking out about the deep-sixing of his original Indiana Jones 4 script has been well and truly hushed up, but the fact that he’s writing Indiana Jones 5 comes as no surprise. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s actually just rewriting the Indy 4 script for Indy 5.

By the way, the production not only brought Paul Newman back from the dead to give voice to his Cars character, Doc Hudson, but they also brought Tom Magliozzi back (he died in 2014) to give voice to his Cars  character, Rusty … from beyooooond the gravvvvvve!

And no, Brian Fee did not direct a Pixar short.

Btw, NEVER subtitle a movie “The First” anything or “The Adventure Begins” or whatever. Never works. Actually seems to curse the thing into being a “one-flop wonder.”
