To mark the launch on Wednesday of DC Comics’ Villains Month and Forever Evil, the much-publicized event series by Geoff Johns and David Finch, USA Today has debuted a clip from Necessary Evil: Villains of DC Comics.
Arriving Oct. 25 on Blu-ray and DVD, the documentary explores DC’s rogues in-depth through interviews with “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.” Legendary actor Christopher Lee narrates.
“The best supervillains, that resonate the most, they do it on two levels,” Johns says in the clip below. “They do it how they psychologically reflect or challenge your superhero and also, in the story, what they’ve done to affect the superhero’s life.”
The bad guys of the DC Universe will be thrust into the spotlight in a full-length documentary called Necessary Evil: Villains of DC Comics, narrated by legendary actor Christopher Lee.
Announced today by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment, production will begin this weekend at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, where fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite DC villain for a chance to appear in the documentary (there will also be opportunities at Comic-Con International and New York Comic Con). Filming will take place Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the DC booth (#801).
