This fall, the guys at Robot Chicken are set to give the same treatment to DC Comics that they gave to Star Wars: a full-on stop-motion special full of raunchy gags and parodies. Now the trailer for the special originally released at this year's San Diego Comic-Con has hit the net, and it doesn't disappoint.
Having had their way with Star Wars, the twisted geniuses behind Adult Swim's stop-motion powerhouse are setting their sights on another pop culture powerhouse, and they're bringing a gaggle of celebrity friends along for the ride.
The guys at Robot Chicken love spoofing sci-fi. They make stop-motion fun of everyone from Optimus Prime to Boba Fett, and now they're devoting an entire special to the heroes and villains of DC Comics. Catch a sneak peek of the hilarity in this slightly NSFW duel between Green Lantern and Sinestro.
Sure, Seth Green is the King of the Geeks NOW (though we suspect he'd have to duke it out with Wil Wheaton for the crown), but 20 years ago, he was just a teen whose TV commercial for a burger chain was giving him his first taste of fame.
Even with reruns in full swing for the holidays, there's still a few original TV goodies, including The Big Bang Theory going all Justice League on us, the search on Sanctuary for the ancient city and Robot Chicken embracing the Star Wars of it all.
