Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics

While we usually don't take the time to highlight straight-to-DVD movies, lately the quality of releases has increased as certain productions which seem too difficult to market for a theatrical run find new life on the DVD shelf. So we're bring you this new trailer for one of those promising projects that won't be in theaters, but we reported on it in February anyway. Narrated by Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern himself) Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics is a documentary taking an in-depth look at DC Comics and cinematic partner Warner Bros and the creative challenge behind heroes like Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman.

Watch the first official trailer for WB's doc Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics:

Producer Jeffrey Blitz (Spellbound) brings us this documentary featuring excerpts from comics, movies and television series with interviews and lots of commentary from comic book royalty like Neal Adams, Karen Berger, Dan DiDio, Neil Gaiman, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, Paul Pope, Len Wein, Mark Waid and Marv Wolfman. The documentary will hit shelves on November 9th later this year and apparently offers a compelling look at the company that created the modern superhero, with unprecedented access to the archives at Warner Bros and DC Comics. I'm definitely going check this out once it's released!

    #7 Because Marvel have got nothing on D.C. Comics. Superman was the very 1st super hero to grace comic book covers back in 1938. D.C. are legendary and Marvel will always come second.

    I got to watch an early screening of this documentary at Comic Con this year, and it was great! I thought I was a pretty knowledgeable comic book fan, but there was quite a lot in there that was completely new info to me. I'm definitely looking forward to purchasing the DVD in November and watching it with my friends. :-)
