'Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II': Meet Superman's intern
It’s finally upon us, fans of superheroes and Robot Chicken (which, let’s be honest, are likely a very similar group).
The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise—the villainous sequel to 2012’s Emmy-nominated comic-centric special—premieres on Adult Swim on April 6 at 11:30 PM, followed exactly one week later by the seventh season premiere of the wildly popular (and certifiably hilarious) stop-motion series.
In keeping with the show’s send-up of pop culture geekery, the second DC installment focuses on the beloved villains at the center of the DC Comics universe, folks like Lex Luthor (voiced by Alfred Molina), The Joker (Giovanni Ribisi) and Luthor’s godawful daughter Lena (Sarah Hyland). Rest assured, all the good guys are back as well, including Batman (Seth Green), Superman (Breckin Meyer), Superboy (Zac Efron), Wonder Woman (Alex Borstein) and the Green Lantern (Nathan Fillion).
Before the special hits the airwaves on April 6, EW’s got a first look at one of the many sketches in the half-hour special. In the clip below, meet the newest employee of Metropolis’ Daily Planet, who replaces Jimmy Olsen after a freak accident at the office.
