As interested as I am in DC Comics history, a documentary produced by and for Warner Bros. raises concerns about objectivity (or rather the lack thereof). Will the documentary explore the various lawsuits (some still ongoing) over Superman by the Jerry Siegel and Joseph Schuster estates? Will Bill Finger, a writer instrumental in creating Batman, get a nod? While Bob Kane gets sole credit for creating Batman, his background, and supporting characters, Finger made important contributions to the Batman mythos (e.g., The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, Two-Face, The Riddler). Kane, however, employed Finger under a contract, "work-for-hire" basis. Will the documentary explore other creator-publisher conflicts (e.g., royalties, digital rights) or will it be a 90-minute lovefest, an old to all great things DC Comics-related? The latter looks like the more obvious approach.
So what do you think? Will you check out the documentary when it hits on November 9 or thereabouts? Or will you give it a pass?
