Seth Green, Mathew Senreich and the rest of the Robot Chicken family are putting their old Super Powers toys to good use — the Emmy Award-winning show is returning for it’s sixth season and it’s kicking things off in a big way with The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special, which premiers September 9th at midnight.
On the special — which is co-produced by Geoff Johns and made in co-operation with DC Comics — Green (who will voice Batman, Robin, and Aquaman) teams up with a group of his super friends to do to the DCU what they previously did with Star Wars in the Annie Award winning RC/Star Wars mash-up trilogy. Who are these super friends? Neil Patrick Harris (Two Face), Alfred Molina (Lex Luthor), Breckin Meyer (Superman), Megan Fox (Lois Lane), and the People’s Green Lantern (aka Nathan Fillion) as, well, the Green Lantern. Alex Borstein, Zeb Wells, Abe Benrubi, Clare Grant, Tara Strong, Senreich, Tom Root, and Kevin Shinick will also provide voices, with Shinick serving as both a co-producer and the narrator. Seth Green will direct the episode.
