By DCE Editorial Thursday, July 18th, 2013

This year, DC Comics, Vertigo and MAD Magazine will be taking Comic-Con programming by storm with well over a dozen distinctly exciting panel presentations. That's a lot to stay on top of, and even if you're at the show, chances are you're not going to catch them all. But never fear, we'll be bringing the panels to you as part of our Con Away From Con coverage, right here on DCComics.com.


First Look: Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics
Thursday July 18, 2013 7:00pm - 8:00pm (Room 6DE)

Behind every great superhero is an even greater rogues gallery, and that's where the spotlight lands in the all-new documentary Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics. From the Joker and Deathstroke to Lex Luthor and Darkseid, the film investigates the inner workings of the most nefarious collection of baddies in comics history. Join Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment for a first-look at a Comic-Con exclusive teaser version of the film, then hear from some of the experts themselves on a panel that will feature bestselling comic book writer and DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns, Entertainment Weekly editor Geoff Boucher, and distinguished representatives of DC Comics's storied history, including Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken, MAD), Andrea Romano (Batman: The Animated Series), and other notable comics creators, filmmakers, actors and more. Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics is narrated by everyone’s favorite villain, Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars films), and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on October 25, 2013.

Everyone has their favorite super-villain. See if yours gets discussed in our exclusive panel coverage below:
