New Documentary On DC Supervillains Announced
The project, titled Necessary Evil: Villains of DC Comics, will be narrated by legendary screen baddie Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings, the Star Wars prequels, and Hammer horror classics), and will feature interviews with many comic book icons who have played a role in making these supervillains so infamous.
Production begins March 30, to coincide with WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center March 29-31.
“DC Comics is known for many things, but chief among them is the compelling, diverse and legendary society of super-villains who populate its universe. From the monstrous Solomon Grundy to the brutal Black Adam to the charismatic Sinestro, there is no single greater collection of villainy in all of fiction. These villains are hugely popular comic book characters in their own right and, quite honestly, many are often times more popular than some of our iconic super heroes," said DCE’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
