Not to be undone by Sony’s brief teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that featured Jamie Foxx as Electro, DC has released a full trailer for an upcoming documentary featuring a few more legendary villains. Necessary Evil: Super Villains of DC Comics takes a look at arguably the most menacing villains that the comic world has to offer.
Lets check out the trailer, which was revealed last night during Preview Night:
Not only does Necessary Evil examine the villains that make their heroes great, it takes a look at the fans who love these characters and the culture that allows for the villains to take center stage as they have. Christopher Lee (the ultimate villainous actor) narrates the documentary which features a ton of great interviews from Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, Kevin Conroy, and Guillermo del Toro (who is currently working on his own take on some of these characters which you can check out here) to name a few. Synopsis below from ComicBookMovie:
[box_dark]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.[/box_dark]
We get to see this fantastic looking documentary on October 25th, but we can see more at the panel today at 7pm.
