‘Robot Chicken’ and DC Comics Teaming for New Special

By May 2, 2015

After two successful specials bringing the worlds of “Robot Chicken” and the comic book universe of Superman, Batman, and the Justice League, everyone’s coming together to make a third time the charm.

According to the Superman Homepage,”Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Friendship Is Magic” will be premiering on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim this coming fall, during the eighth season of the acclaimed award-winning comedy series. The official release makes mention of a plethora of celebrities that will be involved with the project, including several actors from previous DC Comics-based films and TV shows.

The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Friendship Is Magic surrenders DC Comics multitude of Super Heroes and Super-Villains to the demented whims of the award-winning Robot Chicken for a triumphant third time. This time around, Batman and Superman’s bromance takes a competitive turn and the fate of the universe somehow hangs in the balance! The all-star cast includes Seth Green, Matt Senreich, Breckin Meyer, Alfred Molina, Nathan Fillion, Weird Al Yankovic, Alex Borstein, Giovanni Ribisi, Jonathan Banks, Mae Whitman, Hugh Davidson, Dee Bradley Baker, Zeb Wells, Kevin Shinick, plus Adam West and Burt Ward.

In addition to the regular producing team of series creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich — along with their cohorts in Stoopid Buddy Stoodios — DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns will be returning to both executive produce and contribute to the creative direction of the special. Comic book writer J.T. Krul also joins the likes of series writers Breckin Meyer, Hugh Davidson, and Matthew Senreich and Matthew Sheppard.
