The Hollywood Reporter reports that 'Robot Chicken' creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich have teamed with DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation to parody Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and the rest of the DC Comics universe in an upcoming special set to air this Fall during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim animation block.

"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," Green said in a statement announcing the news.

Added Senreich: "We've been working with 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."

The voice cast will include Green as Batman, Robin and Aquaman; Paul Reubens as the Riddler; Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face, Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor; Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern; Megan Fox as Lois Lane; and Breckin Meyer as Superman. Additional voice cast includes Abe Benrubi, Alex Borstein, Clare Grant, Tara Strong, Senreich, Tom Root and Zeb Wells.

The special is the first project for the Stoopid Buddy animation studio which was formed when Green and Senreich's Stoopid Monkey and Buddy Systems united in December, 2011.
