In the proud tradition of Robot Chicken: Star Wars, Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II, and Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III, comes the announcement of a new Robot Chicken target homage: the DC superheroes universe. And wait until you see the voice cast – Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern! Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face! Megan Fox as Lois Lane! Yowzers!
Seth Green, who will be voicing Batman, Aquaman, and Robin, and directing the one-time special, told THR
“Having been raised on DC Comics and the Super Friends vs. Legion of Doom, it’s exciting to tell a whole Robot Chicken story within this awesome universe.”
Expected to premiere in the fall, the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special will be a half hour special on Cartoon Network‘s Adult Swim. It is co-written by head writers/co-executive producers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root along with Robot Chicken writers Green, Senreich, Wells, Mike Fasolo, Matthew Beans and DC Entertainment’s Johns, Franklin & Bash‘s Meyer and MAD‘s Kevin Shinick, who also serves as the narrator, and with Ethan Marak, who co-produces. EPs include Green, Senreich, Johns, Sam Register, John Harvatine and Eric Towner.
DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns said,
“Working with Seth and Matthew and the rest of the Robot Chicken crew has always been nothing short of insanity over the years. DC, Warner Bros. Animation and Adult Swim together — how could anyone resist?”
