This Friday, October 25, 2013, EVIL takes over and you are invited along for the ride. From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment comes a feature-length documentary called “Necessary Evil: Super-Villains Of DC Comics”. Narrated by Christopher Lee the film features exclusive interviews with some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Richard Donner, Guillermo del Toro, Zach Snyder and more.
Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics kicked off Opening Night festivities of this year’s New York Comic Con with a standing-room-only World Premiere of the documentary on Thursday, October 10, the crowd enthusiastically applauding the film’s first public screening.
NOW, for those of us that weren’t fortunate enough to attend that World Premier, the ultimate rogue’s gallery takes center stage when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases the new full-length documentary Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics on October 25, 2013 as a Blu-ray Combo Pack!
This fascinating documentary explores the thin line between right and wrong, the nature of evil and how super-villains can reflect society’s dark side as well as our own personal fears. It also offers insight as to the reasons comic book fans are so fascinated by the very characters they hope to see defeated.
The film focuses on DC Comics’ most terrifying villains, including The Joker, Lex Luthor, Bane, Black Adam, Black Manta, Catwoman, Darkseid, Deathstroke, Doomsday, General Zod, Sinestro, the Suicide Squad, and more.
Christopher Lee, who has played the villain more times than almost any other actor, will provide his unique voice as narrator. The villains’ infamous tales will be told by directors Richard Donner (Superman), Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) as well as Geoff Johns (best-selling author and DCE’s Chief Creative Officer) and other storytellers, creators and those who have crafted the personalities and profiles of the most nefarious baddies in DC Comics history.
Also included are interviews from over forty subjects, including: DC comic book writers, artists, executives, filmmakers, comic experts, critics, historians and celebrities. This one is a must have for fans of DC, movies, comic books and of course BAD GUYS! For too long they have played second fiddle to heroes and now is THEIR chance to “shine” as only evil villains can.
