"I think whether it's the Anonymous guys, Occupy Wall Street or the Scientologist protestors, whenever you can do something that seeps in culturally that's a great thing," the Australian filmmaker said.
"Ultimately when Alan Moore and David Lloyd made the original V For Vendetta it was an approximation of Guy Fawkes, who was the original agitator, I guess, in this country."
McTeigue added: "I like seeing it around. It's good that you can have a discussion about things that are anti-establishment. If you can be anonymous behind the mask, then it's great."
The movie adaptation of V For Vendetta, starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving, centred on a masked revolutionary called V as he attempts to bring down a totalitarian regime in the UK.
