Robot Chicken

Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

Robot Chicken Season 7 Will Include A Second DC Comics Special, Plus A Cameo By George R.R. Martin

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.

Wreck-It Ralph Gets Its Medal, Wins Big at the Annie Awards

Wreck-It Ralph was the King (Candy) at last night’s Annie Awards, beating out Brave and ParaNorman for Best Animated Feature. It was nominated alongside Hotel Transylvania, Frankenweenie, Rise of the Guardians, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, and The Rabbi’s Cat too, but honestly, did any of those have a chance? Actually, speaking realistically ParaNorman was a long shot as well, but I really (really really really… ) wanted it to win and may have deluded myself as to its chances a little.

Watch the Trailer for Robot Chicken’s DC Comics Special

We’re pretty excited for this Robot Chicken DC Comics Special. It’s set to feature plenty of awesome people as the voices of plenty of awesome characters; Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face, Seth Green as Batman, Robin, and Aquaman, Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern, Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor, and the list goes on. As Green said, it’s the “whole Robot Chicken story within this awesome universe.” And the trailer looks pretty freaking hilarious, we have to say.

More Details About Robot Chicken‘s DC Comics Special, Including Cast Members!

Back in October, at New York Comic Con, the creators of Adult Swim‘s Robot Chicken announced that they’d be doing a special centered solely on the DC universe. But at that point, there wasn’t much for them to show us, aside from all the sketches they’d already done with DC characters. Now, however, is a different story, because they have announced a cast of pretty amazing people to provide voice talent. We also know it will be coming this fall, probably just in time to promote at the next NYCC. Seriously, even this Marvel girl is psyched for this.

And call it Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Yes, really.

In someways this represents a new direction for Robot Chicken and in others a return to its roots.
