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.

Watch Mark Hamill and Tara Strong Voice the Joker and Harley Quinn

Video recordings of Mark Hamill doing the Joker’s voice aren’t non existent, but they are rare, and should be savored. (And yes, Tara Strong is not the original voice of Harley Quinn, but she is the voice of Batgirl and has taken over the role of Harley since Batman: Arkham City.)

Tara Strong to Reprise Batgirl Role for Beware the Batman

Tara Strong, voice of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in The New Batman Adventures (a.k.a., Batman: The Animated Series after the art revamp), Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Super Best Friends Forever and a number of video games, announced today that she’ll also be voicing Barbara Gordon in Batman’s newest small screen incarnation, Beware the Batman. I didn’t even realize that Barbara was in it (although it was apparently mentioned at last year’s Comic Con)! Her debut episode airs this weekend.

Listen To Star Trek’s Q Sing The History Of My Little Pony, As A My Little Pony

We’ve seen John de Lancie do a lot of ridiculous things thanks to his time as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation but this…this is something to behold. “Let’s Go and Meet the Bronies” was written by Lauren Faust, Amy Keating Rogers, and Zachary Lobertini and is part of a larger My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic documentary about the fandom. De Lancie voices Discord on the animated series and star Tara Strong adds her vocal stylings to the mix near the end. My life is better for watching this.

The My Little Pony Team Express Their Love of Bronies

It’s been an exciting week for bronies…Is a sentence I never thought I’d be writing in a professional capacity when I grew up. But it has been! There’s been the announcement of a new comic book series based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, to be published by IDW. There’s been the teaser trailer for season three of the show (viewable after the jump). And now, amongst all the revelry, the cast and a writer for the show are publicly talking about their overwhelming love for bronies and the “social phenomenon” they have wrought.

In My Mind, Superman & Batman Act Just Like They Do In Real Life Like They Do In This Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Trailer

I was impressed after watching the first trailer for Lego Batman2: DC Super Heroes, by just how many characters of the DCU were being included. Now after watching this follow-up, I’m more excited, if that’s even possible but that may be solely based on the interaction between Superman and Batman in this one. Interesting to note here is the minifigs having voices for the first time in-game. We noticed they did in the LEGO: The Lord of the Rings trailer, but this game is getting released first (June 19). Was this a choice made by the creative teams or was there perhaps some push from the higher-ups as a result of the LEGO movie in development from the directors of 21 Jump Street. Audiences will get to see voice actors bringing the minifigs to life in that so maybe this is a way to get us used to it. Who knows? I don’t care either way but I know a lot of people prefer they don’t have an actual voice in the games. But Clancy Brown is back to voice Lex Luthor and Tara Strong is voicing Harley Quinn. So maybe you don’t mind as much now?

Tara Strong Makes Good, Contacts a Brony Fan After Her Knoxville Cancellation

Voiceover dynamo Tara Strong was scheduled to appear at the Knoxville Comic and Anime Show, but ended up canceling. Much to the dismay of a teenage fan named Dragon and his mother Rebecca Andrews, who posted on the convention’s Facebook page that her disabled son had really been looking forward to meeting the voice of Twilight Sparkle on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. While the VIP Andrews purchased didn’t help her son meet Strong at the convention, the actress went out of her way to let Dragon know how much she appreciated her fans: she placed a personal call.

Every Voiceover Actor in Geekdom Reads Star Wars [Video]

Get as ready as you can be for this, because you will never be prepared for the overwhelming geekitude you are about to witness. Several voiceover actors — the people who have voiced almost literally every cartoon you’ve ever watched — got together at Emerald City Comic Con to read Star Wars Trilogy: The Radio Play. Kevin Conroy (who is Batman) read stage directions while Billy West, Tara Strong, Maurice LaMarche, John DiMaggio, Jess Harnell, and Rob Paulsen read the various other roles as the cartoon characters they’ve voiced in the past.

This lasts nearly an hour and a half. You will want to squeeze this into your schedule after wiping your brain parts off the walls — because your mind is probably already blown.
