DC All Access – Danny Elfman, Top 10 Gifts, and ‘Doomsday Clock’

Riddle me this: What popular web series takes you behind the scenes of the makers and shakers of DC Entertainment? Answer: DC All Access! Jason, Whitney, Tiffany, and Hector give us an in-depth look at the DC Universe, and this week is no exception! First, DCAA talks with acclaimed composer Danny Elfman to discuss his work on Justice League – in theaters now!

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Danny Elfman Talks Batman & Superman Themes

DC’s iconic heroes have a legacy in film…but they do in music as well. With Justice League, forty years of classic superhero themes unite into one new sure-to-be-iconic Danny Elfman score. Elfman tells DC All Access how he worked familiar themes for Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman into the music he composed for Justice League and what approach he took to new characters such as Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash.

The holiday season is finally here! It’s always a struggle finding the perfect DC themed gift. Have no fear, DC All Access is here with their 2017 Top 10 Essential Gifts (if any staffers are reading this, a certain editor will take one of everything)!

Got a DC fan in your life? Then we’re about to make your Black Friday a whole lot easier with our list of the Top 10 Essential DC Gifts of 2017. From must-have graphic novels to just-released action figures to detailed replicas from movies like Wonder Woman, it’s enough to turn you into a hero…of holiday shopping!

One major gift that we are highly anticipating is Geoff Johns’ epic Doomsday Clock. Johns discusses this major comic event that will have the DC Universe colliding with the world of the Watchmen.

The clock has struck and while the end may be here, it’s also the beginning. Doomsday Clock is a 12-issue comic book event that will combine the worlds of Watchmen and DC for the first time ever, in a timely story that will change the face of the DC Universe as we know it. Writer Geoff Johns drops by DC All Access to discuss the book, including his reasons for writing it, why it was important to include characters like Rorschach and Dr. Manhattan and why Gary Frank was the only artist who can draw it.
