SDCC '13: NECESSARY EVIL: SUPER-VILLAINS Of DC COMICS Trailer Debuts
This new documentary, which arrives on DVD October 25, highlights the bad guys of DC in comics, TV and film with help from creators ranging from Geoff Johns and Jim Lee to hopeful Dark Universe director Guillermo del Toro.
The Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, Darkseid and Lex Luthor -- the scariest and most menacing villains in DC Comics’ universe -- take center stage in a brand new full-length documentary from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) and DC Entertainment (DCE). The joint announcement was made today by WBHE and DCE.
Christopher Lee, who has played the villain more times than almost any other actor, will provide his unique voice as narrator. His roles in more than 200 films include star turns as Dracula, the Mummy and Frankenstein’s monster in Hammer horror classics, Count Dooku in Star Wars, and Saruman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films.
In this new documentary film, the malevolent, sometimes charismatic figures from DC Comics’ hallowed rogues’ gallery will be explored in depth, featuring interviews with the famed creators, storytellers and those who have crafted the personalities and profiles of many of the most notorious villains in comic book history.
If you're lucky enough to be attending Comic-Con, the "Necessary Evil" panel kicks off on Thursday at 7:00 PM.
