‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Composer Tom Holkenborg to Score ‘Deadpool’

Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) is becoming the new go-to composer for big blockbusters. Holkenborg has done the scores for big movies like Megamind300: Rise of an Empire, and Divergent with also contributing to The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel with Hans Zimmer. Most recently, Junkie XL blew people away with his crazy Mad Max: Fury Road score and now it appears that he will be composing another big film.

Holkenborg took to his twitter to announce that he will be doing the score for Twentieth Century Fox’s DeadpoolJunkie XL seems like a great choice for the movie that is clearly going for a more fun yet ultra-violent tone. Deadpool won’t be the only superhero movie in 2016 that Holkenborg will be working on as he is teaming up with Hans Zimmer again for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Armed with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor, former mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) goes in search of the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
