DC Comics Gets 'Robot Chicken' Cartoon Network Special

DC Comics characters are getting the "Robot Chicken" treatment in a new Cartoon Network special. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Robot Chicken" creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich are getting a one-time DC Comics special on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. The special is set to air in the fall.

According to TV Guide, Green will voice Batman, Robin and Aquaman, Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens will voice the Riddler, Neil Patrick Harris will play Two-Face, Alfred Molina will be heard as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion is voicing Green Lantern, Megan Fox will play Lois Lane and Breckin Meyer is voicing Superman.

Additional voices will be provided by "Robot Chicken" co-creator Sebreich, Abe Benrubi, Alex Borstein, Clare Grant, Tara Strong, Tom Root and Zeb Wells.

"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," Green said in a statement. DC Comics characters have been included in previous installments of "Robot Chicken."

Comic scribe and DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns worked with Green and Senreich on the new special. Green will direct the 22-minute special, which he wrote along with Senreich, Johns, Wells, Meyer, Douglas Goldstein, Tom Root, Mike Fasolo, Matthew Beans and Kevin Shinick.
