Update: I was wrong… The documentary is executive produced by Jeff Blitz, and directed by “Mac Carter, a stellar commercial director at Anonymous Content, who, in the comic book world, is highly regarded for writing The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft.”
DC Comics is celebrating their 75th Anniversary Documentary with a documentary chronicling the story of the comic book company. Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics is directed executive produced by Jeffrey Blitz, the filmmaker responsible for one of my favorite documentary films Spellbound, and the Sundance coming of age movie Rocket Science (which is the film that really put Anna Kendrick on the map for filmmakers, before films like Up in the Air and the Twilight series). The official synopsis doesn’t reveal much:
An expansive documentary exploring the 75 years of DC Comics, the memorable characters of its universe and the talented artists and writers who brought them to life.
Of course, the full trailer reveals a lot more. You can watch it right now after the jump, followed by some covert art. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
