Creating worldwide trends across social media platforms, buying ad space on billboards in cities with major Comic-Con events, and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities, the Snyder Cut fans relentlessly spoke up for what they believed in. On May 20, 2020, Snyder and his beloved Superman actor Henry Cavill finally gave those fans what they yearned for, announcing Zack Snyder's Justice League for HBO Max.

"I'm particularly proud of our #ReleaseTheSnyderCut project at ComicBook.com because we're only amplifying the voices of some of the good people who have been a part of this movement from the beginning," producer Brandon Davis said. "It wouldn't have been right to sit myself in front of a camera and tell the story. It would not have done this whole thing justice. This is about the fans and it's a story which I'm proud to help see told by them."
Producer John Mason adds: "I was only aware of the online petitions, which I thought would never succeed in garnering a re-edit of Justice League to finish it the way Zack Snyder intended. I never knew to take the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut mantra so seriously. In working on this, the passion of these people instantly won me over. I had no idea of all the amazing good they have done with their cause. I am so happy they get to see what they have fought so hard for, and it has made me excited to see it as well."
