Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics is a documentary that delves into the psyche of DC Comics Villains, and contains interviews with over 40 people who have directly or indirectly been involved in the DC Universe over the last 50 years. The documentary was Co-Produced and Co-Directed by Scott Devine and J.M. Kenny, and is available TODAY, October 25th, on Blu-Ray, DVD and Combo Pack.
ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell was in the audience at the panel that was presented at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer. During that panel, they showed the first 22 minutes of the documentary, which was narrated by Christopher Lee. His voice gives you chills every time you hear him. Before the panel, Marc had some deep discussions with Scott Devine, J.M. Kenny and Kevin Shinick about what makes these characters so evil, how they came to be that way, and why they are so necessary to the stories told about our favorite heroes of DC Comics.
By the way, if you pre-ordered the Special Edition Ultimate Version of Batman: Arkham Origins, the video game which also arrives in stores on October 25th, then you will already own a copy of this fantastic documentary.
