One of the many constants in this universe is that every pop culture franchise you love will eventually be ruined by Robot Chicken. Given the current prominence of comic book superheroes and Game of Thrones, respective skewerings were probably inevitable. Speaking with Zap2it, Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green commented that as far as DC Comics goes, “There’s no real line we can’t cross.” Oh boy.
Robot Chicken will be back on Cartoon Network starting April 6, kicking off its seventh season with “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains in Paradise.” The episode sports an impressive roster of voice actors, including Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, and Zac Efron as Superboy. Superboy sings, by the way. About — cough — relations with Lena Luthor. It’s Robot Chicken.
A Game of Thrones parody will arrive later in the season, complete with a vocal appearance by George R.R. Martin, playing himself. Nothing has been announced yet about what else the episode will entail, or when it will air. We’ll keep an eye out.
