When Grammy-nominated composer Tom Holkenborg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), better known as Junkie XL, began composing Deadpool, his goal was to compose "music that is fun, but not funny."

To achieve his objective, he constructed the synth-heavy score for 20th Century Fox's R-rated superhero film by utilizing vintage synthesizer equipment.

Holkenborg provides an in-depth breakdown in the video below.

Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
