‘Justice League’ opening song “Everybody Knows” was Joss Whedon’s choice

Last night a TV Critic for The New Yorker, Emily Nussbaum, tweeted out the lyrics to the song “Everybody Knows” by Leonard Cohen. The song appears in the opening title montage for Justice League and is performed by Sigrid, and it turns out it was Joss Whedon who decided to use it there.

Whedon replied to Nussbaum’s “Everybody Knows” tweet this morning and said, “(I stuck it in JL too)”.

The “Everybody Knows” opening in Justice League is no “Beautiful Lie” from Batman v Superman, but I liked it. Did you? Let me know in the comments below.
