Filmmaker Zack Snyder, who released his version of "Justice League" a while back, was scared he would be embroiled in a legal suit with the film's producers Warner Bros. due to the public campaign that led to it.

Snyder had to back out of superhero film in May 2017 due to his daughter Autumn committing suicide at the age of 20. He was replaced by Joss Whedon, who changed the film, which did not go down well with fans.

A huge public uproar resulted in the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign.

The filmmaker says that while he was all for the idea, he did not expect it would happen because he was scared of a lawsuit from Warner Bros.

"I was more worried the studio would sue me. Do something to silence me," he said, according to contactmusic.com.

Snyder released his version of the film subsequently, and he says his fans did a lot for him at that time.

"Here's the reality. That fandom raised $750,000 for suicide prevention and mental health awareness. They've saved lives. That's a fact. But on the other hand, was it fun to provoke them? For a clickable thing? Yes. And they were an easy target. But they continue to raise money," he said.
