Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL to compose Deadpool score

Posted on

Paul Bergen/Redferns

The Merc with a Mouth takes his music seriously, so it only makes sense that he’s enlisted the composer behind one of the year’s most memorable scores for his film.

Tom Holkenborg, also known as Junkie XL, announced on Twitter that he will begin working on the Deadpool score this week. Holkenborg most notably composed the score to Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as films like the recently released Black Mass. He also scored the upcoming Point Break remake, and his Deadpool announcement marks a notable reach across the Marvel/DC aisle, as he also lent his talents to the score for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will now be one of two superhero scores Holkenborg has set for next year.
