Zack must love that tune as he used it in Watchmen already.

The Jeff Buckley cover was amazing.  Now it has been covered by half the contestants who ever appeared on American Idol.  Please move on.  Leonard Cohen has lots of other great songs.

And Snyder fanbois have been whining about it on Twitter to HBOMax non-stop.

On a different note,the Watchmen trailer with the Smashing Pumpkins' "The Beginning is the End is the Beginning" worked great. It was a slow version of "The End is the very Beginning is the End" and was done by the Pumpkins, not a slow-cover-epic-trailer-music found everywhere nowadays.

If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you

Much better song than Hallelujah.

Yeah but a pretentious and over hyped song fits much better with Zach Snyder movies for some reason. Almost as if there were a common theme.

Best version of that song, imho.

Good.
Find a less cliched song, Zack.  There are billions.

ALL of Leonard Cohen's work is now pretentious and overhyped.  No one in GenX or Boomerland listened to this guys' music until Shrek came out, and that's a fact.  He sold few albums and had zero hit songs in the US/UK and I can not recall hearing his name spoken in 20 years of listening to every "left of the dial" terrestrial radio station growing up in the Northeast US. Until Shrek, and then everyone suddenly knew all about what a great under-the-radar talent he was.  Kudos to his fans and PR company, that guy had a second act like no other artist I've ever seen, broke the top 10 album chart only 55 years after his first offering.  Didn't even make it to #1, but hey, great job for a previously niche singer.

God help us, he's gonna replace it with that dismal Johnny Cash version of Hurt, isn't he..?

I wonder if JL: REDUX is going to keep the scene in which Batman (who can grapple up buildings), Flash (who can run up walls) and Wonder Woman (who can essentially fly) get stuck in a not-that-deep hole in the ground. EXCITEMENT!

So tired and over that stupid song. At one point it might have been great but now it's such an overwrought cliche. Give me a break.

Also, this cut isn't good at all, most likely. DCU crammed so much into this film in order to catch up with Marvel that Snyder forgot little touches like "plot", "characterization", "coherence" and "pacing".

On the plus side, we get to see Henry Cavill's CGI upper lip again.

It's got justice-bro favorites Amber Heard, and Jared Leto's Joker.

Gonna be a blockbuster.

Everyone is banned from using that in a trailer ever. It's done, find something new.

GenX here. I bought this album in 1988 when I was 14 years old.

Yeah. You were listening to [insert band name] before everyone else thought they were cool. We're all impressed.

His accountant stealing all of his money thus forcing him to start touring again as an old man was the reason for that "second act" which you think was due to Shrek.

Also, Shrek used the John Cale cover.

Lastly, holy shiat, did you really not know about Leonard Cohen before Shrek?

Actually I should wind back on that last one. Shrek was twenty years ago now and there are plenty of adults around who saw Shrek long before they caught up on sixties folk acts.

Oh yeah, we all know him from Shrek.
Also, Pump Up The Volume from 1990.
And being namedropped by Kurt Cobain in a Nirvana song from 1993.
And the Natural Born Killers soundtrack from 1994.
And a very famous cover on a Jeff Buckley album, also from 1994.
And Lost Highway from 1997.
But other than that, it's all due to Shrek!  Fact!
