Print View ‘Secret Origin: History of DC Comics’
On November 9th, Warner Bros. Pictures releases Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics, a documentary written and directed by Mac Carter and narrated by Ryan Reynolds. The documentary explores the 75 years of DC comics history.
The documentary opens up the vaults and features excerpts from, films and television programs based on DC characters as well as interviews with comic book creators Neal Adams, Karen Berger, Mike Carlin, Dan Didio, Neil Gaiman, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Paul Levitz, Dwayne McDuffie, Grant Morrison, Dennis O’Neil, Paul Pope, Louise Simonson, Mark Waid, Len Wein and Marv Wolfman.
It’ll be interesting if this will be a full view of the companies history, warts and all. There’s some great books out there that covers the early years of the comic book industry and many speculate that Harry Donenfeld, one of the key figures in DC’s history was involved in bootlegging liquor. There’s also been numerous copyright fights over the years and ongoing legal battles with many of their iconic character’s creators.
The DVD will be distributed by Warner Home Video and have a SRP of $24.98 and will also be available On Demand and for Download.
