Zack Snyder, director of Watchmen, 300, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, has recently released a t-shirt that can be purchased online. All the money raised goes towards Suicide Awareness and Prevention.
My contribution to the fan-initiated fundraising t-shirt campaign. All of the proceeds from this shirt going to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. https://t.co/sJQwbqXM3D #afsp pic.twitter.com/X8caqcJlW2

During the production of Justice League, Zack stepped down after his daughter, Autumn, tragically committed suicide.
So far, the campaign has raised over $55,000 with over 18 days to go.
While the campaign will do tremendous good. The t-shirt also evokes Synder’s original vision of the Justice League and the planned future releases.
The design resembles the Kabbalah Tree of Life and incorporates various superhero emblems and many latin words like Aequitas (latin for Justice). Eagle eyed fans spotted that the t-shirt acted as a potential tease for what was going to happen in Justice League 2.
One fan theorized that the t-shirt depicts Clark impregnating Lois and in Justice League 2 Batman saves her and the child from Darkseid, sacrificing himself. At the end, they name the child after Bruce.
Syner responded with a clap emoji but has been incredibly secretive towards it’s actual meaning which only he knows.
Whatever the message, the t-shirt has done an amazing job at raising awareness and money for a very important charity, which is obviously very close to Zack’s heart. Whether you like his films or not, you cannot deny that what he has achieved at the moment is astounding.
There is still a long time before the campaign ends, so grab your t-shirt here and contribute towards a great cause.
