Robot Chicken Teams Up With DC Comics This Fall

Posted by No_Name_ (16193 posts) - - Show Bio

Seth Green is responsible for creating a lot of things that you really love -- including some of your favorite shows on Adult Swim (Robot Chicken, anyone?). To many, he's considered a sort of reigning Prince of geek culture, so when news broke that Green was developing a new segment for Adult Swim featuring many DC Comics, hardly anyone was really surprised.

Earlier today Green announced that he would be teaming up with Warner Brothers Animation and DC Comics for a "one-time special taking place within the universe that features the likes of Superman, Batman and Lois Lane." The segment would likely air on Cartoon Network sometime this fall, and would feature the voice talents of Megan Fox as Lois Lane, Paul Reubens as Riddler, Green as Batman, Aquaman and Robin, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern and Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face.

Clearly, DC Entertainment is trying to give DC characters a new edge, and this is certainly one way to do it. Writer and Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns sounded really positive about the upcoming project, and hinted at the direction that this hour-long show might take.

Who knows, maybe if this show is a success; we'll see more DC and Adult Swim team-ups. What do you think? Do you think this is a good idea? Is this something you would like to see?

Considering that their appearances within Robot Chicken have always been parody and spoof, it will certainly be interesting :)

That is pretty cool, he was great as Bat-Mite in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

It was only a matter of time. They will definitely make some digs at Aquaman though. He's obviously an easy target.

Loved the Star Wars ones, and the Arkham Redemption clip is one of my favorites lol

Heh, cool. I enjoy the show normally... the Star Wars focused episodes were on the nose for me... so I've got a bag full of giggles waiting for this one.

My juvenile sense of humor wholeheartedly agrees with this. If they're half as funny as this, then we're in for a treat:

Now all we have to do is combine cinnamon buns with DC.....

@Avenging-X-Bolt: agreed

I was pretty much under the impression that Robot Chicken and DC already had crossovers, but this of course is welcome news! The choice of actors is great! Curious how Nathan Fillion went from a Browncoat to a Green Lantern though, hehe. Awesome!
