Composer Benjamin Wallfisch, who has Mortal Kombat out this week, is speeding on to his next project. Wallfisch will score Warner Bros. and DC Films’ upcoming The Flash movie, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Flash stars Ezra Miller as the DC superhero and is directed by Andy Muschietti, the filmmaker behind two successful It movies, which Wallfisch scored. The composer has already played in the DC Universe before with 2019’s Shazam!, with other recent scores including The Invisible Man and Blade Runner 2049, which he worked on with Hans Zimmer.
The Flash also stars Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as different versions of Batman, Sasha Calle as Supergirl and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Maribel Verdu and Ron Livingston are playing Barry Allen/The Flash’s parents. The film, which began production Monday, has a release date of Nov. 4, 2022.
The Wallfisch-scored Mortal Kombat arrives in theaters and on HBO Max Friday.
