Joss Whedon was in charge of Justice League's reshoots and fundamentally changed the movie as a result. Up until this point, he hasn't commented on his work there but that's now no longer the case...

A lot of comic book fans have been unhappy with Joss Whedon's decision not to comment on Justice League and that's since been perceived as a lack of support for the DC Comics adaptation on his part. The filmmaker has, of course, favourited a series of Tweets from a critic bashing the movie's villain Steppenwolf but beyond that, we've heard nothing from him since it was released on November 17th.

Well, that's finally changed as The Avengers helmer has made his first acknowledgement in regards to his involvement by...taking credit for the use of Sigrid's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows" over the movie's opening credits. It's a song which has been used everywhere and when Emily Nussbaum mentioned that, Whedon was quick to point out that he actually stuck it in Justice League.

Most fans have assumed that it was Snyder who was responsible for this song being included, especially as Sigrid got involved shortly after Wonder Woman was released. Perhaps this is a sign that Whedon has been changing things at the behest of Warner Bros. for even longer than we thought but, either way, it is at least somewhat interesting to finally see
him comment on the movie. Thoughts?

@auditore - Zack Snyder giving emotion to a movie is the most Zack Snydery thing? Yeah no. A while ago, I commented on Youtube that the Sigrid song is probably from Whedon and guess how Zack Snyder fans reacted? They're going to spin this somehow.
