There were many scenes in the recent Justice League film that screamed Zack Snyder. Sure, the film wasn’t entirely his vision, due to him stepping down, and Joss Whedon replacing him, but you can definitely see glimpses of what are traditional Snyder tropes.

One such scene is the opening credits. In it, we are treated to a lot of slow motion montage shots revolving around a post-Superman world. While it does have its problems, I personally found it to be a moving little intro.

Interestingly enough, the man behind the music choice in the scene (“Everybody Knows” from Sigrid) wasn’t Snyder, but was actually Joss Whedon.

The filmmaker took to Twitter to randomly reveal this choice, when replying to a TV critic, who typed out a verse of lyrics:

As mentioned above, this is a scene that I was personally certain Snyder had almost complete influence over. The montage aspect is very much his style, and he also has a tendency to utilize unexpected songs to carry them. To hear Whedon was the guy who stuck the song in is an interesting little reveal.

What do you think of this? Was it a good choice by Whedon, and did it surprise you that it was him who selected it? Let us know your thoughts down below!
