The Great Darkness is a 2014 film directed by CosimoValuta and co-produced by The Neo-Avant Institution and RobloxDC Studios. The film is based off the DC Comics character Great Evil Beast.
The living embodiment of primordial darkness is conjured into existence, causing devastating consequences in Hell, Heaven, and Earth.
In late 2013, CosimoValuta, Zilex1000, and ThecapcomFreak discussed developing films based off of mythological monsters and creatures commonly found in H.P Lovecraft's novels. ThecapcomFreak pursued a film based off of Cthulhu, while Zilex1000 pursued incorporating the characters Azathoth and Nyarlathotep into one of his films. RobloxDC Studios and The Mafia Films worked to find a DC comics monster that could be adapted into a film as well. The comic book "Swamp Thing Vol 2 #50" was eventually selected due to the Great Evil Beast being the villain of the storyline. On January 1, 2014, the film was announced, however, the project later fell apart due to other film commitments and a transfer of RobloxDC ownership.
On October 24, the project was resurrected. The screenplay was finished on October 28, and principal photography began on October 29. It was revealed on October 31 that CosimoValuta was officially signed on to direct the film, and a teaser trailer was released the same day. On November 12, the teaser poster was released as well as the full cast list. On November 16, the film had completed editing, and the theatrical trailer and poster were released. The film premiered and was released on November 21, 2014.
