DC: Release Superman's Mustache for Charity

This petition had 601 supporters

Dear DC,

As a lifetime DC Comics fan, I've been following most of the production news around the upcoming Justice League film, and, like a lot of fans, I am irrationally excited about it. However, this production update stands out: it's no secret that Henry Cavill had to reshoot scenes as Superman for the upcoming blockbuster Justice League with a full mustache due to legal obligations to other project(s) he was working on, that later had to be edited/CGI'd out in post-production:

Variety: Henry Cavill's Super Mustache Controversy

Business Insider: How Hard it is to Removed Henry Cavill's Mustache

(Bonus) Cinemablend: Ben Affleck's Description of Henry Cavill's Mustache

It just so happens that Justice League is being released the very same month (this month) that is already very much associated with a certain cause: Movember. If you're not familiar, the Movember Foundation's focus is men's health (prostate and testicular cancers along with suicide prevention) and to raise awareness (and money), people all over the world grow mustaches the month of November. So far they've funded over 1,200 men's health projects.

In honor of Movember—along with promoting excitement for the release of Justice League—I humbly request you do one of the following:

• Auction off (one or more copies of) a version of Justice League WITH Mr. Cavill's undoubtedly glorious mustache completely intact

• Auction off tickets to—or simply hold—a private screening of this 'stache of steel version

• At the very least, a trailer with mustache'd scenes or Movember-themed behind-the-scenes featurette with original mustache'd footage and a peak inside the post-production de-mustaching

How you choose to do this is up to you to prevent leaking (despite us all wanting to see it), etc., but please donate some or ideally all proceeds if any—but the most important thing is using your reach to get the word out.

Thank you for considering this petition,

Brent Fagerburg
