The Flash theme from the TV show is almost exactly the same as the Batman theme.

As good as he is, a lot of Elfman's scores sound very similar. For instance, his Spider-man theme has a part that sounds just like the beginning of the Batman theme. Those same couple of notes.

His Spider-Man score was fantastic too. Although I don't think he'll ever supercede the classicism of his Batman score.

There are definitely some similar bits, but the way the motif carries itself is a little different.

Ya I hear some similarities, but nothing that close. At the time Elfman made the Batman theme, everyone made a big deal about him (because the 89 score was so memorable) and wanted him to do there score, but obviously he didnt collaboarate with everyone, so alot of people emulated his style, I still hear composers to this day copying Elfman's style.

yeah elfman always has a similiar sound, but thats why i like him. thats why alot of ppl like the same band over and over. some ppl just like his sound. its all different, but because its the same person they are gonna use that similiar sound again. nothin wrong with that.

Wow, that is pretty similar. It's almost has the same ring to it (da da da daaaa da), but it's in a different key or something.

Finally a thread that talks about Elfman and appreciating his great work. I'm a huge Elfman fan and love most of his work. What did you guys think of The Kingdom score that Elfman wrote ?

Thanks. You should check it out, the movie and score. A lot of people slam the score because it's synth heavy. I enjoyed it. It's like Planet of the Apes, Proof of Life, and Hulk. If you're not a fan of those scores then you might not enjoy The Kingdom score. He hasn't done anything as synth heavy as The Kingdom since Wisdom (1987).I thought the movie was good as well. It stars Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner. It also has Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman in there. Great cast and plot.As well as intense action scenes. IMO. This score and the Hulk score is proof that Elfman could've figure out Nolan's Batman vision with his music.
