‘Robot Chicken’ Announces All-Star DC Special Cast

Robot Chicken DC Comics Special
Adult Swim / Stoopid Buddy Stoodios

It seems like only last October (because it was) that ‘Robot Chicken‘ creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich announced that they would produce an all DC Comics special in the vain of their three ‘Star Wars‘ specials.  Today, that nerd-dream comes one step closer to reality with the reveal of the upcoming special’s all-star cast! 

Regularly known for their wrangling of big-name stars for even relatively minor roles, ‘Robot Chicken’ has made public the superhero roster and attached voices for the announced-but-untiled DC special, some of which has previously been featured with the show’s past use of DC characters.  The special, written by legendary DC comics scribe/Entertainment Chief Creative Officer  Geoff Johns and MAD’s Kevin Shinick, will debut sometime in 2012.

According to the official announcement, the special will feature creator/star Seth Green as Batman, Robin and Aquaman, Paul “Pee-Wee” Reubens as The Riddler, Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face, Alfred Molina (‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ ‘Spider-Man 2‘) as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion (‘Castle,’ ‘Firefly’) as the Green Lantern, Megan Fox (‘Transformers‘) as Lois Lane, frequent ‘Robot Chicken’ star Breckin Meyer as Superman, as well as Abe Benrubi, Alex Borstein, Clare Grant, Tara Strong, Senreich, Tom Root, and Zeb Wells.

Says Green of the special, “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,” to which fellow EP Matthew Senreich adds “We’ve been working with Geoff Johns for over 15 years, so playing together on this special only made it more fun to work in the worlds we all love so dearly.”

Ever ones to top one another, Johns had his own contribution, posing that “working with Seth and Matthew and the rest of the ‘Robot Chicken’ crew has always been nothing short of insanity over the years. DC, Warner Bros. Animation and Adult Swim together? How could anyone resist?”

We’d say ’nuff said, but the folks at DC probably wouldn’t appreciate the sentiment.  What say you?  do these huge names draw your attention for the forthcoming special, or have you been missing out on ‘Robot Chicken?’ Give us your dream sketches in the comments section below!
