Longtime Batman fan Bazz Henderson-Gates, who was given 11 months to live in October 2014 after his oesophageal cancer spread, died at the age of 48 on Wednesday. His death was barely a month before the DC Comics movie’s scheduled release date of March 23.
His #Batman4Bazz social media campaign was launched by his sister Gwen Henderson-Gates on Jan. 31 in an attempt to get his last wish fulfilled, ABC News reports.

A similar campaign dubbed #ForceforDaniel secured terminally ill Daniel Fleetwood an advance screening for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in November 2015. Unlike #Batman4Bazz, Fleetwood’s campaign had attracted the support of several high profile actors including original “Star Wars” stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher and “Force Awakens” star John Boyega.
Twitter users and several DC fansites had quickly picked up the hashtags #Batman4Bazz and #BatmanforBazz to rally support for the ill Batman fan. Supporters of his cause tried to reach out to “Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder, star Ben Affleck, film studio Warner Bros and DC Comics via social media. However there has not been any public response from any of them as of this writing.
After Bazz’s death the Batman4Bazz Facebook page and the initial campaign tweet for #Batman4Bazz have since been deleted. Twitter users expressed their condolences using Batman’s images and quotes via #Batman4Bazz.
