ROBOT CHICKEN Taking Aim at DC Comics for Next Special; Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Megan Fox to Lend Voices

     April 25, 2012


Seth Green and his crew behind Robot Chicken have already skewered the Star Wars universe several times over with entire specials dedicated to mocking George Lucas and the classic sci-fi saga. Now the stop-motion animated comedy series has their sights set on DC Comics as Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim will present a Robot Chicken special featuring Seth Green as Batman, Robin and Aquaman, Paul Reubens as The Riddler, Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face, Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern, Megan Fox as Lois Lane, and Breckin Meyer as Superman. More after the jump!

We’ve been working with (DC Entertainment chief creative officer) Geoff Johns for over 15 years, so playing together on this special only made it more fun to work in the worlds we all love so dearly.” Considering Cartoon Network is under the Time Warner banner and DC Comics has a cozy home with that company, I doubt we’ll see a Marvel special to follow, but this should bring some decent laughs.  For a refresher, check out a clip from Robot Chicken‘s take on Star Wars below.
